Pre-Registration is NOW Open! We are NOT SOLD OUT! Put your name into the "Waitlist" to become Pre-Registered!!! To implement the Pre-Registration, UltraSignup used the Waitlist, out of my control. We have 200 spots across events, plus a little more for no shows. So looking at the Waitlist you can see we are not sold out....thank you for your patience while we validate your qualifier and get to break even.
Stunning 68-mile ridge line romp across the full length of the Santa Monica Mountains Backbone Trail or try your hand a the 100 miler. Brought to you by All We Do Is Run, Coyote Cohorts, and their extended community of giddy volunteers.
All We Do Is Run of Born to Run, Red Rock and 9 Trails plus Coyote Cohorts, the loose brains and competent muscle behind Coyote Two Moon, Coyote FourPlay, and Cajun Coyote, proudly announce the Backbone Ultra, the only official ultra-running event covering the full length of the Backbone Trail in southern California's Santa Monica Mountains.
Local time: 7:32 AM
A vision for hikers and runners for over 50 years, this completed 68-mile ridge line trail rewards intrepid (or is that foolhardy?) runners with gorgeous Pacific Ocean views along sage-scented single track. The point-to-point course starts at Will Rogers State Park and meanders up coast, collecting nearly 15,000 knee-knackering feet of elevation gain before finishing down the spectacularly scenic Ray Miller Trail. And for those who want more we will offer a 100 mile option that will have you howling for mercy as you finish this beast.
Note: this event is limited to 200 runners, and requires prior completion of at least one 50-mile or longer trail run. Additional qualifying criteria will be required for the 100 miler (see the web site for details) We'll use your UltraSignup history (or records) to confirm a good fit. When registering, you'll see "Wait List/Pre-Registration" on first access; and on exit on a later screen, know that your credit card won't be billed until we do our work on this end around your fit with the event.
