The OTHTC High Desert Ultra course is a loop route over rolling desert terrain on jeep roads, single-track trails and sandy washes over the Spangler Hills south of Ridgecrest. It offers great views of the Southern Sierras and can provide wonderful running conditions during the month of December. We think this is a great course for first timers and veterans alike. Runners are supported by 9 great aid stations, about every three miles, with water, electrolyte drink and other ultra-type goodies
