May 2018 58 Small Markets...Big On Sports! Sponsored Content ocated in the heart of Northern California, the picturesque city of Redding is an outdoor sports recre- ation haven. Labeled as the sunniest city in California with 300 days of sunshine per year, Redding offers a versatile sports destination for any event in any season. Whiskeytown Lake and Shasta Lake are pristine and inviting for swimming, sailing or any kind of paddling, which is why TIME Magazine labeled Redding as the "unofficial capital of kayaking." The Sacra- mento River runs right through the city and the famous trout-filled waters put Redding on Forbes' list of Top 10 Fishing Towns in North America. An array of national and state parks nearby offer cycling and running events to take center stage. With 225+ miles of well-maintained trails to hike, bike, walk, run or ride, it is clear why the San Francisco Chronicle said Redding's extensive trails was the "gem of the U.S. trail system." Stepping aside from the natural attrac- tions, the California Soccer Park and the Big League Dreams Sports Complex offer 11 combined lighted and all-weather synthetic turf fields for year-round activity. Adding to that, a 20,000-square foot indoor field house inside Big League Dreams hosts indoor soccer, hockey or basketball leagues and tournaments. For equine events, there's the Redding Rodeo Grounds, with its outdoor arena that can seat more than 5,000, and up to 6,100 with added bleacher seating. The state-of-the-art Redding Aquatic Center fea- tures an Olympic-size, 50-meter by 25-yard competition class swimming pool. There's also a recreation pool with zero-depth entry, a children's play feature and a 160-foot water slide. The area also is home to several golf courses, which offer a variety of chal- lenging play along with stunning views. Redding also boasts the world's largest marked 3-D archery competition, the West- ern Classic Trail Shoot, which takes place on a 65-acre site owned by the Straight Arrow Bow Hunters. For athletes, families and visitors, when not competing, there are a ton of things to do—whether it's taking advantage of the recreation and amazing natural beauty of the area, exploring the vibrant downtown scene, shopping, dining or just relaxing. n L Redding Offers Versatile Sports Destinations In Any Season Sabrina Jurisich, Shasta County Film Commissioner "For event owners, tourna- ment directors and coaches, we're here to help in every way we can, so teams, families and spectators have an amazing experience here in Redding—both on and off the field."
