Starting from Cowbell Alley, the first few miles will take you up dirt road and single track to the start of South Ridge trail. Switchback your way up the next 4 miles to the summit of Tahquitz peak. Fuel up at the aid station and make your way down through skunk cabbage meadows. Catch your breath at Saddle Junction at the next aid station and prepare to climb as you make your way up to Wellman’s Divide and keep climbing all the way up to San Jacinto peak. Enjoy the views as you wait for your legs to work again. From here is a steep descent down to Strawberry Junction. Fuel up again at the next aid station and take a look at where you are about to run back to, that’s right, Tahquitz peak. Shed a final tear and shuffle your way back down South Ridge to the finish.

Come for pain, stay for the beauty.

Course will be ~32.5 miles and 9,000ft of elevation gain. Register here.
