50K Course Description:
6,000ft of elevation change
The 50K course is an out and back fireroad course beginning at the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary and the
Harding Trailhead. At approximately mile 9 is the first aide station at the top of Harding. From here
runners go right at Main Divide Road. There will be marking for a left turn off Main Divide. This is for
a short out and back segment that takes runners to the top of Modjeska peak. From there it is back up Main
Divide Road to the Santiago Peak summit aide station at mile 16. Runners have done 95% of their climbing at
this point and can enjoy running back downhill for 15 miles with an aide station stop at mile 22.

Aide Station Information:
Note: This is a secluded course in a National Forest so aide stations are somewhat limited.
Aide stations for 50K will be at miles 9, 16 & 22
This course runs through a national forest - littering by any runner may be subject to disqualification and/or a fine!

Cut-Off Times:
50K: Overall Cut-off time is 9 hours (5PM)
Sunset is at 5:25 p.m.

50 Mile Course Description:
11,000ft of elevation change
The 50 Mile course starts identical to the 50K course for the first 16 miles which is up the Harding
trailhead from the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary to the first aide station at mile 9. From here runners
turn right onto Main Divide Road for several miles before coming to a trail marking for the Modjeska
Peak out and back portion. 50 Mile runners have the unique otpion of going up to Modjeska peak on
their way up, or on there way back down. Either way we will know if you've been there and you only
need to Summit Modjeska once. From there Main Divide Road takes the runners up to the Mile 16 aide
station at Santiago Peak (all runners must stop at this aide station). The course breaks from the
50K route here and continues on Main Divide Road until a right turn at the West Horsethief Trailhead.
This begins the single track portion of the race and brings the runners through some spectacular
trails. The next turn is right onto Trabuco Road and on to the mile 27 aide station near the Holy
Jim Trailhead. Runners will then briefly pass through a very small residential area and make their
way up Holy Jim (do not turn on the waterfall trail!). Holy Jim snakes its way back up to Main Divide
Road over the next 5 miles. Runners turn left on Main Divide and make another required trip to the
Santiago Peak Summit at mile 36. Then it's back down Main Divide Road to the mile 41 aide station
at the top of the Harding Trail. Runners who did not summit Modejska on the way up, can do so on
their way to the Harding Trail. A left turn on the Harding Trail takes runnings straight down for
9 more miles to the finish.
