Race Date Change 05/22/2021
Hello Trail Friends,
With the state of California dropping into the "Orange Tier" of COVID restrictions and potentially being reopened in June, we are optimistic about the possibility of hosting the 2021 PCT 50. However, due to the continued volatility of the situation, as well as the potential conflict of PCT thru hikers, we believe we will have the best chance to host the race if we move the date from May 15th to May 22nd. We are still working on the permit for PCT 50 and hope to have it soon, they have indicated permission to file a permit and we have a covid meeting 4/19/2021 but can not guarantee that this race will happen yet. Anyone who wishes to ride this out with us in the hopes that it does go off will have a spot. If the race doesn't go off, we will turn this into a virtual, self-supported race and everyone who decided to move forward with us will be able to bypass the lottery and get back in next year except you will have to repay as we will begin obligating these funds for the 2021 race immediately.
We want to thank everyone for all your support and are looking forward to putting on another great event in the near future.
This is an out-and-back course mostly on single track trail along the Pacific Crest Trail in east San Diego County. The trail features numerous climbs, particularly on the “out” portion, as well as some rocky sections. It begins at an elevation of approximately 3,000 feet, reaching 6,000 feet in the Laguna Mountains. (Note: routing is subject to final approval from the U.S. Forest Service.)
