Here’s your chance to run the whole Pacific Crest Trail. Virtually. Or pick one state to do. And you can do it with friends if you don’t want to race it solo. This virtual race is June-August, which gives you three months to cover whichever race distance you pick:
- ENTIRE – The entire Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is 2,653 miles, so probably a wee much for someone to do the whole thing solo. But you can get up to five of your friends together to make a team and cover that distance together while apart. Breaking that distance down over 92 days is 28.8 miles a day.
- WASHINGTON – The Washington section of the PCT is 506 miles long, so 5.5 miles a day. Doable for one person over three months, but also fun for a team.
- OREGON – The Oregon portion of the PCT is 455 miles, which is 4.9 miles per day. A great goal for you, or still a great team option.
- CALIFORNIA – This state is long. The PCT covers 1,692 miles in California. That’s 18.4 miles a day, which is too much for one person to do every day for three months (right?), so this is a good team option.
