Racing and Camping National Parks All Summer Long!

Race season is here and we could not be more excited to announce our partnership with Vacation Races!

Vacation Races: Run where you play

Have you ever thought about running mile after mile of pristine trail in America's National Park system? This year, you can make that dream a reality with Vacation Races, a company that coordinates races across America with a focus on sustainably participating in one of America's greatest resources: our National Parks. 

As a sponsor of Vacation Races, we're excited to support this incredible racing opportunity. 

But we're also excited to participate! This year, we'll be at the Yosemite Half Marathon on May 13. 

Because, at the end of the day, Yosemite is not just about day-trips and incredible views. It’s also a great place to camp, and a great place to run. And on one weekend per year, you can combine those two activities, camping in Yosemite’s unbelievable wilderness and running a half-marathon on Yosemite's trails.

While the Yosemite race is fully booked, you can certainly come, experience the atmosphere, and explore to your heart's content. And you can always sign up for one of the many Vacation Races happening this year at beautiful parks across the US! 

And if you’re going to participate in a Vacation Race, you might as well get the full experience and camp at the same time.

Here's a list of great spots to camp near Yosemite put together by our friends at The Dyrt.
