Los Pinos is a technical and VERY challenging, but beautiful 50k course. Roughly around 9,000 feet of elevation gain & loss. The race is run in the Saddleback Mountains near Orange County, California, and is NOT RECOMMEND as your first Ultra. If you are looking for a FAST 50k, look elsewhere because THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT THAT RACE. One volunteer in 2013 described the elite front runners looking as if they were at mile 40 of a 50 miler just 16 miles into the race! Bottom line: this race is tough and TRAINING IS KEY! There are no refunds, so take our advice, as well as the advice of all those who have survived the race.
