ARE YOU UP TO THE CHALLENGE?
Welcome to the Ultra Sign Up page for Southern California's toughest 50 kilometer race, Los Pinos!
Local time: 5:37 AM
Los Pinos is a technical and VERY challenging, but beautiful 50k course. Roughly around 9,000 feet of elevation gain & loss. The race is run in the Saddleback Mountains near Orange County, California, and is NOT RECOMMEND as your first Ultra. If you are looking for a FAST 50k, look elsewhere because THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT THAT RACE. One volunteer in 2013 described the elite front runners looking as if they were at mile 40 of a 50 miler just 16 miles into the race! Bottom line: this race is tough and TRAINING IS KEY! There are no refunds, so take our advice, as well as the advice of all those who did not listen last year!
There are four well stocked aid stations (one that you will hit twice), each manned by an ultra running Race Director or experienced ultra marathon runner. Great finish line environment with food and friends. Generous cutoffs with a final cut off of 12 hours. Race starts and finishes at Blue Jay campground. Start time is 6 am.
