SISU 24 is Back! Update 8/4/2021

This past year and a half has been tough on everyone, let’s all get together and celebrate what we all love – community, friendship, family, and our love of battling mountains!

The Bobcat Fires and Floods wreaked havoc and was one of the largest ever recorded fires in Los Angeles County, but the community and park are working hard on the restoration processes. With that we have set the new date for the SISU 24 and look forward to spending the weekend with you and your family/crew/friends!

Saturday, November 26 – Sunday November 27, 2022

You are encouraged and invited to come to camp Friday, November 25th to set up your tent/camp space.

New trails, a renewed mountain, and the bears that miss you. Bears….. lots of bears………

*Anyone who was previously registered has been moved forward to this year. If this year does not work for you, you will be forwarded to the following year upon request, or you may gift your registration, if you cannot make it, don’t want to gift, or forward your registration, then your registration will be donated to the Camp to assist with their restoration*

About the Race

We are excited to announce our return home, Camp Trask in Monrovia, CA!

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 in Monrovia Canyon Park-Camp Trask. You are encouraged to come Friday and set up your base camp. Set up your tent and gear next to the Boy Scout Fort - which provides a unique and fun experience, please 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 their 24-hour race, they may elect to carry on.

This race is self-supported. 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 (introducing 3 new trails this year!) all leaving from base camp. The longest distance is 15 miles, and the shortest is 4ish miles. Every time you head out you check in at the head table which is at the fort at Trask. 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!

Trail and Camp

We are trail runners and love this community. SISU is very proud to offer this race at an extremely cost-effective price point. Included in your registration is 3 days of camping! The Camp has suffered a lot of damage from fires and floods so this year Cabin stays are not an option. We will have the park ranger station open for all who paid for cabin, previously. This includes a kitchen and bathroom available only to those staying in the Ranger Station. Please bring your tent, sleeping bag, etc. There is a main room where you will have access to set up your area. Remember this is just to sleep, we expect you out and racing all weekend! Additionally, the Fort at Camp Trask has recently been remolded and this is where our base camp will be held. Athletes are invited to come and set up tents in and around the camp. If you elect not to use the Ranger Station and previously reserved a cabin stay your reservation will be forwarded to a following year when the cabins are restored. All profits will be donated directly to the restoration of the camp, so please be understanding of the years of tribulation.

Please bring your family and crew and camp for free on us! Set up a tent, use your car, just be mindful of the bears and keep your things locked up. Fires are not permitted.
