See DOC Run...A Castle Peak 100k Trail Race for Sac Life Moms!

Doctor poses for his 100k charity run

Dr. Timothy E. Phelan, an Ob/Gyn physician who practices at Creekside Ob/Gyn of Folsom, has taken care of thousands of women and delivered hundreds of babies. In his free time he challenges himself by running long distances. In the last 10 years, he has completed over 50 competitive running events, including 10 road marathons (26.2 miles) and 18 ultra-marathons. Races are a great way to raise money for worthy causes and during the pandemic Dr. Phelan created two solo charity runs. First, a 25 mile run from his office to the Sacramento Life Center in June, 2020. He surpassed his goal of raising $2,500 ($100/mile). On March 13 of this year, he doubled his fundraising goal to $5,000 with a solo 50k/32 mile run from Granite Bay Beach to the Life Center and nearly doubled his goal amount! Now that races have restarted, Dr. Phelan is increasing the challenge. On August 14, 2021, he will again run "Double or Nothing" in the Castle Peak 100k trail race to hopefully raise $10,000 for the Sacramento Life Center. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Castle Peak 100k is arguably one of the most difficult trail races in the country. Masked by its spectacular beauty, this is a true mountain foot race covering over 62 rugged miles. The race starts on the Pacific Crest in Truckee, California at the Donner Ski Ranch before ascending (and descending) over 15,000 feet at an average elevation of 7,400 feet above sea level. The course travels over roughly 95% of demanding single-track trails, while journeying through some of the most dramatic scenery and vistas Tahoe has to offer.

By running these 100 kilometers, Dr. Phelan hopes to raise money to expand Health and Nutrition services for new moms at the Sacramento Life Center.

Dr. Phelan crossed the finish line on Saturday, March 13 at 12:51 pm, running a total of 52.2 Kilometers! Watch his story, covered by CBS 13 News Sacramento Here!

The Why: Life is precious.  But not all women have access to the support and resources they need for a healthy pregnancy and baby.  The Sacramento Life Center offers a safe place for women to find the compassion and support they need to become a parent.  As an obstetrician for over 20 years, I see daily how precious life is and I support the Sacramento Life Center’s mission.  That is why I am competing in the Castle Peak 100k Trail Race on August 14, 2021.  The Castle Peak 100k, is arguably one of the most difficult trail races in the country. Masked by its spectacular beauty, this is a true mountain foot race covering over 62 rugged miles. The race starts on the Pacific Crest in Truckee, California at the Donner Ski Ranch before ascending (and descending) over 15,000 feet at an average elevation of 7,400 feet above sea level. The course travels over roughly 95% of demanding single-track trails while journeying through some of the most dramatic scenery and vistas Tahoe has to offer. By running this race I hope to raise $10,000 to expand Health and Nutrition services for new moms at the Sacramento Life Center.
