Just a heads-up that the annual Sierra Vista Trails Runs 2019 will be happening March 2nd and 3rd in our area.
The runs will be held over two days with some new distances. Saturday, March 2nd will be a 100k, 100k Relay, 50k, and half marathon. Sunday, March 3rd will be the 10k, 5k, and 1 mile kid’s fun run.
All of the races will be on the Sierra Vista Trail and start at the Sierra Norte trailhead on Dripping Springs road.
Each day has a participant limit of 300 people, plus the people helping, so expect some vehicle and pedestrian traffic especially around the Sierra Vista trailhead off Dripping Springs (where the RV campers typically are), and somewhat less where Sierra Vista crosses Soledad Canyon Rd (where the small parking lot is between the lower and upper sections of Talavera).
Additionally, some of the shorter runs will be on the trails immediately north of Talavera (to the West of Sierra Vista Trail), so expect lots of company if you like to walk those trails.
