General Information

Who wants to run a fun and organized run on the Pacific Crest Trail on the old 2010 Leona Divide course??!! This fun run is limited to just 30 participants with staggered starts so we are practicing social distancing at the start line.

Distances to choose from are 50k & 30k. All runs will be held on legally open trails


For each distance you will have 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 be 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 opened food or cups.
Aid stations will have: Water, Fluid electrolyte, GU gels, Spring energy gels, packaged chips, 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.


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. Only 50k runners may have drop bags.
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.
