This is not a fancy event, it is a genuine, old fashion ultra run. It is a low key, 40 Mile Trail Endurance Run, Trail Marathon and Trail Half Marathon. ALL THREE DISTANCES will start at the First Crossing Day Use Area at the end of Paradise Road in Santa Barbara. The out and back course formats offer dramatic views of the Santa Barbara Backcountry. Your registration fee includes, finishers award, custom shirt, awards to top male and female overall. As always, the course marking will be minimal but adequate. Aid on course will also be minimal but adequate.
