Our Course

Both courses start and end at Cerro Coso Community College. These loop courses consist of rolling desert terrain (dirt roads) with elevation variation from 2400ft to 3500ft. Temperatures can vary from 30 degrees to 80 degrees on race day, so layers are recommended.

Nine aid stations will be well stocked with water, Gatorade, cookies, etc. It is advised that all participants carry a water bottle between aid stations. Ibuprofen will not be provided.

Race Capacity

Due to the ongoing regulations in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are limiting this year's field to 200 participants total.
