Big Baz's "2015" Trail Race Dates

Shadow of the Giants
June 6, 2015 

BAZ here...  Please note my phone number in OC is no longer in use. 
My cell 949-355-3599 is still good .  My home number in Oakhurst is 559-683-7420.  Hope to see many of you at Shadow of the Giants 50K on June 6. 

Please enter ASAP... we are only allowed 250 runners.  Hope you can car pool; our parking at Green Meadows in Fish Camp is limited as usual.  Currently there is no snow anywhere on the Shadow trails (we need it).  However, my friends, please come prepared for all conditions.  About 10 years ago we had to cancel the race because of snow.  See ya soon.   Love BAZ XXX

The Forest Service limits the number of runners to 200.  Please sign up early!

Big Baz has been running trails for decades! This 1984 picture is from their OLD GOATS running group
 while running the famous Grand Canyon R2R2R (Rim to Rim to Rim).  Big Baz is all the way on the right!
