Go Back in Time with Tunnel 2 Tunnel!
Right now is a scary and heartbreaking time for the world, and the running community is not immune to it. COVID-19 is killing people. Everything else is insignificant in the face of that.
Our races have been canceled and there is no telling when they are coming back.
Santa Barbara VK was a challenge for runners and hikers to climb 1000 meters from Santa Barbara to La Cumbre Peak. Santa Barbara VK 2020 is over and the results are final.
A new challenge is here!
Tunnel 2 Tunnel will take runners back in time. The course starts at Mission Tunnel and ends at Cold Spring Tunnel.
These tunnels are major works of engineering that have brought water to an arid Santa Barbara for us to enjoy for over a century. The course connecting them is steep and rugged. This is a challenge with modern footwear and gear, imagine navigating these mountains with the gear they had 100 years ago!
The photographs above show the start and the finish of The Tunnel 2 Tunnel. Please review some safety information before taking the challenge on. This is good information for any run in the mountains.
