The weather gods delivered a calm, dry Saturday morning for around 700 participants in the 55th annual Trinidad to Clam Beach Run Honoring Ford Hess. The race and fun run featured 5 3/4-mile and 8 3/4-mile options starting north of Trinidad — the "fun" for the longer races includes a wet crossing of Little River along the scenic route. A 3-mile race/walk option ended in Trinidad. Check out the slideshow below for highlights of the day.
Andrea Carby, of McKinleyville, and a crowd of runners splashed their way across Little River.
The finish line on Clam Beach featured music by the Humboldt State University Marching Lumberjacks and a tent with hot chili for runners along with the usual snacks. The race raises money for Chamber of Commerce scholarships and other Trinidad community events. See the race results here
