Enjoy exclusive access to private trails belonging to: SLO County Parks, Cal Poly SLO, Miossi's La Cuesta Ranch, and Camp San Luis Obispo. SLO Ultra beneficiaries are: the Land Conservancy of SLO County, Team Red White & Blue and San Luis Obispo County Parks.

All levels are welcome to run or hike these private trails made of golden hills, tree lined canyons and epic mountain top views of the Seven Sisters coastal range. The 50K course limit is 10 hours, roughly a 19:20 minute/mile pace, on 60% fire roads and 40% single track trails, with 6,200 feet elevation gain, and offering 11 aid stations plus drop bags at mile 20. All participants will receive a wood and leather finishers medal, race shirt, race photos, ample course aid-medical-directional support and a first class finish line in the Race SLO Dirt Festival.
