Entries for the Virtual Trail 2023 are expected to open in March. This year’s event will begin April 19th, allowing entrants 100 days to complete the distance – finishing up under the same moon as the date of the actual Tevis Cup Ride on July 29th. Watch the website or our Facebook Group – Tevis […]
We are confident the Ride will happen this year!
Although the USFS has officially closed the Mosquito Fire area through the end of 2023, they have been strong partners in getting the necessary work done to ensure that the trail is ready for both the Western States Run and the Tevis Cup in 2023.
Here’s a detailed account of the work that has been done so far.
The 2023 entry for the Tevis Cup will be available on February 1st.
The trail teams were able to get some great work done before the weather turned. They have been hard at work in El Dorado Canyon, as well as on the California Street section. Volunteer work has been postponed until the weather improves, but please consider signing up to help out once things dry out.
1943 – September 15, 2022
Saddened to report Larry’s passing.
Craig Thornley (WSER Run Director) and John Catts (our shared trail liaison) hiked the burn earlier this week and had this report.
Local resource YubaNet.com published this report regarding the Forest Service BAER team who are assessing federal lands burned in the Mosquito Fire, including those traversed by the WST.
With the announcement of the WSTF Action Plan, many supporters of the Western States Trail have expressed interest in helping with trail repair and upkeep. We’ve been touched by offers of time and money. We can use the help and would love to have it.
So, let’s get it done!
The WSTF BOG joins the entire endurance community in grieving the accidents that occurred at this year’s Ride. We are committed to reducing the likelihood of future accidents and improving potential outcomes. To that end, we have identified two key areas on which to focus our time and resources.
We are devastated to have to share that two horses have died as a result of injuries sustained during the 2022 Tevis Cup ride.
Statement regarding the incidents on the trail during this year’s Tevis Cup.
Coverage from this year’s ride can be found in two locations:
Our official Tevis Cup 100 Mile One Day Ride – Western States Trail Foundation Facebook page and our Tevis Cup Ride YouTube Channel
Our official photographers for this year, together with photos from our volunteer army can be found here. Some photos are already loaded to the Tevis Flickr account, while the official photographers often take a few days to get theirs loaded, so please check back if they aren’t up yet.
With less than two weeks to go before riders start their journey under the Tevis moon, here are some final messages and information.
The entire Trail has been logged and verified clear as of June 15 from start to finish.
Please note a wash-out approx. 1/4 mile prior to Kaput Springs on the trail from Deadwood and use extreme caution.
This year’s checkpoint card is now available for download.
Please note the change from last year – there is now a hard cut-off at Cal-2 of 11:45 pm – IN – after that time you will be overtime and pulled from the ride (previously this cut-off was purely a guideline to riders).
Don’t be late! Entries must be received on / before July 1st to avoid the $100 increase. Also, if you haven’t yet declared your mount for this year, this also needs to be done on / before July 1st if you want to avoid the $30 late fee. You may use the “Add/Change Equine” form. […]
