About the Race
SISU ENDURANCE presents one of the most unique events on the planet. 24 hours to run any distance you like, including the opportunity to achieve one of the toughest 100 miles anywhere! We start deep in the Angeles National Forest - Camp Eaton. You are encouraged to come Friday and set up your base camp. We highly encourage renting a cabin space for only $50. Your cabin space is available as long as you need to be there from Friday morning to Monday for those catching a late flight! It includes bunk bed (bring your sheets), clean/dry space for transition/food, showers, bathrooms, and all dorm have A/C or heating; depending on the weather. Cabins are optional, however most athletes will take advantage of this one of a kind opportunity! Cabins are available on the SISU website at www.sisuteam.com and may be viewed here https://mbautista69.wixsite.com/mysite. You may also bring your own tent and find your space and camp for the weekend! Bring the entire family, crew, or friends – all extra support team are free and encouraged! Saturday morning the race starts. 100 mile runners go out first, then Individual and team 24 hour runners follow shortly after(100 milers start at 5am, 24 hour racers start at 8am) . The race ends Sunday, 24 hours later for team and individual, and there is a 35 hour cutoff for 100 mile athletes(4pm). If an individual or an individual of a team achieves 75 miles during the course of their 24 hour race, they may elect to carry on.
This race is self-supported. You have a base camp. We encourage everyone to be festive and creative with your camp. We will have movies as well as arts and crafts for the family! There are multiple loops all leaving from base camp. The longest distance is 15 miles, and the shortest to a beautiful lake is 5 miles. Every time you head out you check in at the head table which is at the multiple purpose room at Camp Eaton. You choose which loops you want to do, and how many you desire! There are also challenges through the 24 hours if you desire such as midnight yoga, and community service. At the end points are earned by your miles as well any extra challenges you do. You are never far from base camp and your gear/fuel/food. There will be hot food for sale at base camp! The mood is festive with lights, movies, crafts, and onesies. You may encounter bears, cats, deer, and other wildlife but they are your SISU neighborhood friendly wildlife friends, so bring your camera!
