    Q: If my family wants to come out to the finish later in the day, will I need an individual and a family waiver to get in at the PVBCC?

    Almost zero comments about this race and we have 10 days to go. Will be my first go of it(had to scratch with injury 4 days prior last year). Advice?
    1. Keith Kirby  - September 19, 4:00 PM
      Fuel smart, hydrate well and enjoy the journey. Have a safe race and see you at the finish line.

      Mike,<br />My advice is to start slower than you want, hydrate & eat at each aid and enjoy the process! Weather looks to be nice for tomorrow. Good luck and ill see ya out there.

    I have entered the race and had a bad ankle injury training recently. I cant run it. I was wondering if anyone wants to buy my spot. I have registered a size L t-shirt.
    1. Brian Gonzales  - September 18, 7:01 PM
      Sorry bibs are non-transferable and registration closed on August 31

    Maybe I am missing it (most likely), but I think there is no mention of aid stations. Where will the aid stations be this year? Is it the areas that are highlighted on the map (Pine Creek Road, Big Tree, Pioneer Mail)?
    1. Brian Gonzales  - September 15, 10:45 PM
      Hey Michael- Look at the chart at the bottom of this page for the distances between aid.
      I look forward to seeing you again!
    2. Michael Huber  - September 18, 12:05 PM
      Thanks Brian! Didn't see this before.

    1. Sean Stokes  - August 29, 8:08 AM

    1. Sue Kopas  - August 8, 11:55 AM
      I won't be able to make it on the 24th. Would anyone be interested in running on Sunday, Aug 25th?
    2. Laura Dunn  - August 20, 9:55 AM

    We received course approval from the Forest Service. This year's course will be an out-and-back from the Bible Camp up to Big Tree then to Pioneer Mail via the Indian Creek Trail. Maps and complete details will be posted soon.
    1. Mike Trask  - August 7, 8:14 AM
      Yee haw.... elevation chart = UP A LOT, then down.

    RETURNING TO OUR ROOTS: The 2013 running of the Noble Canyon 50k will start and finish at the Pine Valley Bible Center (Bible Camp). This year's course will be an out-and-back, going up then down Noble Canyon! Specific course details and maps will be posted once we receive additional clarification and approval from the US Forest Service.

    This week we met with and received updates from the forest service. I also ran some trails to measure distances for the 2013 course reroute. We have good options and I'm very optimistic I will have a formal update soon.

    Today (7/8/2013) we received some horrible news. It has been reported that the Chariot Fire, which has been burning on the east side of Sunrise Highway for a few days, has jumped the highway and has destroyed our beloved Al Bahr Shrine Camp. From what I understand the loss is total including the Lodge, Kitchen and all the trailers. No injuries have been reported. From what I understand the fire is still burning so the total effect to the course or other structures is unknown at this time.

    As you know Al Bahr was the scheduled Start/Finish venue for this year’s Noble Canyon 50k. Over the coming weeks we will post updates on the website regarding potential changes to the course and venue.

    Considering the volume of potential inquiries please hold off emailing me any inquiries for at least a couple weeks since I will not be able to get back to you.

    We will work closely with the US Forest Service to identify an alternate course and venue if needed and will do everything we can to put on a top quality 50k event on September 21, 2013.
    Our thoughts are with the good people from Al Bahr and others effected by this fire.

    FYI if anybody wants to get a good hill workout in for Nobel. On June 16 7am-7pm I will be doing as many repeats as I can and welcome anyone to give it a try
    At glider port trail the one that goes down to blacks beach. Swing by even if you only have time for a little. Will be a great challenge !
    1. Joseph Price  - June 11, 9:09 PM
      I work pretty close to there. Is it the trail just north of the glider port? If it is I have ran up that in the past. Nice little work out on my lunch breaks.

    Brian, thanks for including the service fee in the reg fee. I hate the sneaky little fees. But, since I've already paid the money, any chance we I can donate the fee to a good cause..maybe one of the parks or Trail Fit?
