AID STATIONS: For each of the run in the series you will have three aid stations along your routes that you will hit on your “out and back” courses. These aid stations will be zero contact aid stations. Runners are not allowed under any circumstances to touch anything. You must enter the minimal aid station, open your own pack or bottle, and the volunteer will pour water or electrolyte for you while the volunteer wears gloves. This volunteer will put on a clean pair of gloves every 20 mins. There will be no food or cups. Just water, Fluid electrolyte, GU gels and GU waffles, and ice. Ice will only be touched by the volunteer using a scooper. This scooper will be replaced with a clean scooper every half hour. These aid stations will be incredibly minimal and follow all safety and sanitary rules.
This 30k & 50k run will start and finish in Aliso & Woods Canyon Wilderness. The route is an out and back, and ran 100% on trails. The 50k will have three aid stations total. One of which will be hit twice. The 30k will have two aid stations and one that will be hit twice. Only 50k runners may have drop bags. You will see your drop bag at mile 15 (aid station and turn around spot). This is the easier of all the races in our series over the Summer. When you register you will be emailed a strava link w/elevtaion profile.
PLEASE READ: These runs are low key grassroots events that are meant to be fun. Running in the fresh air on trails is the best medicine for all of life’s stressors, and we want to give you that gift. These races are inexpensive, and just meant to be a fun way to legally and safely get back out on the trails again together. If you have issues with us having these funs runs then stay home. We are ok with that.
