This virus, named after a shitty Mexican beer, may be holding us back, but it’s not keeping us down.

Due to the spread of the Coronavirus, it is no longer safe nor legal for the Red Hills Ramble to continue on its scheduled date.

Make no mistake, THE RAMBLE WILL HAPPEN!!! We just don’t know when, yet. As soon as it is safe, we will announce the reschedule date.

At this point, The Ramble is a NO-RISK race. If a runner can’t make the rescheduled date or decide to no longer participate, they can opt for a deferral or full refund.

Thank you for your understanding.

Happy Running,

Dusty Bottoms Trail Runners –

The club that won’t bow to a virus named after a shitty Mexican beer.

10K, 15K, 35K, & 50K TRAIL RACES

Set in the scenic Sierra Nevada foothills, just 35 minutes from Oakdale, this race features both technical single track and fire roads with plenty of elevation change.


To say we couldn’t put on this race without the help of Fuzio would be an understatement.



In true Dusty Bottoms spirit, this is not a “grab your medal and go” sort of race. Bring your chairs and plan to hang out. We will have food and drinks available at the finish line. Might even have a beer or two.


This is a cup-less race. All aid stations will provide hydration, but you will need your own cup.


The Ramble benefits Kate’s Rescue’s work to find loving homes for area pets.


Early bib pick-up will be available Thursday, May 2nd 6:30-8:30pm at Fuzio during our regular weekly meet-up.
