The Saddle2Surf Story
The 2019 Saddle2Surf 100/50 Mile Run began in 2010 as the 100 Mile Endurance Challenge, a race to support the mission, vision, schools, and children of the 100 Mile Club. Since then, it took a little break, went through a few course changes and has reemerged as the Saddle2Surf 100/50.
Back with a new name and slightly new route, and carrying the same mission, vision, and spirit as always: This run is dedicated to supporting and promoting the 100 Mile Club, and helping the next generation of runners become Healthy, Happy, and Connected...one mile at a time. This is an old-school 100 mile, point-to-point urban 100-mile run. And it is all for our kids.
The challenge? Run 100 miles from Norco to the Santa Monica Pier, or 50 miles from Norco to Huntington Beach. Either way your run will begin in Norco, CA (AKA Horsetown USA) and finish right on the beautiful California coast. On this run, you will experience the beauty and the beast that is Southern California.
Saddle2Surf 100/50 is open to 100 incredible runners.
Registration and FUNDracing
Saddle2Surf is an ultramarathon...there is a time limit, but we are not calling it a race. It is a run. The goal is everyone finishes in under 30 hours for the 100 and under 15 for the 50. Ultramarathon registration is a two-step process.

The route for this run begins in Norco, CA at 100 Mile Club HQ and finishes at the Santa Monica Pier. The actual course is subject to change at any moment due to road closures, construction, and other variables. It is our goal to keep this route as consistent as possible and communicate changes as they arise.
Because this event is held in urban areas across Southern California, it is imperative that you confidently learn the course prior to the race. Any course markings placed on the course will be tampered with, removed, and altered beyond our control, so you and your crew are your best assets.
Learn the course! Training runs/course preview meetups will be held in the months/weeks leading up to the run, so stay connected!
Crew, Pacers, & Support
It's just you...and your CREW
This run is 100% crew-supported. There are no aid stations or drop bags, only a start line, time/bracelet stations, and a finish line. Each runner must be accompanied by a support crew comprised of no more than one four-wheeled motor vehicle and at least two crew members – two of whom are legally licensed to drive. Entrants may have no more than one support vehicle on the race course. You will be on small streets with VERY limited parking, making turns and U-turns to support your runner, so be very mindful of the size and practicality of your vehicle.
