Lake Hughes, California
Click to go to the web site for the Leona Divide 50 Miler in Lake Hughes, California

The Leona Divide Fifty Miler began in 1992 and is now one of the premiere Ultra Marathons in California. As a Non-Profit event, it is supported by generous sponsors and many volunteers, without whom the race would not be possible. Each year, a generous portion of the proceeds are donated to the Live Again Recovery Home and the Painted Turtle Childrens' Camp of Lake Hughes. They greatly appreciate your support for the race.

The course will remain the same as the last few
years with about 38 miles of Pacific Crest Trail and 12 miles of dirt roads in the Angeles National Forest. As we did last year, we will offer a 28.4 mile option for runners 60+ years of age which follows the first 24.5 miles of the 50 miler, then heads directly back to the finish in Lake Hughes. 10 well-stocked aid stations cover the course of the 50 miler. The 28.4 miler passes through four of those before it returns to the finish.

Awards are presented to the first male and first female overall, as well as within each age group. The number of awards in each age group will be determined by the number of entries. First overall male & female also receive lifetime free entry to the race and first male & female in each age group receive free 2006 entry. Also, every runner receives a LD50 shirt, and each official finisher receives a finisher medal. On top of all that, loads of great prizes donated by race sponsors are raffled off to runners.

Lodging is available a 30 min. drive away in Palmdale. No Camping is allowed at the Start/Finish.
