OVERVIEW:
Team SISU is proud to bring you this one-of-a-kind event. We will be running the trails and beaches of Malibu for 24-hours. There will be camping and fun. There will also be a race, for those of you who are competitive. Individuals and teams of 3 can compete. Run as much or as little of the course in one day as you want. There will also be special SISU challenges to test your limits.



DETAILS:
The run will begin at 9am on Dec 13. You are welcome to come before (start 2pm, Dec 12) to setup and camp out. The event will end at 9am on Dec 14. We have the campsites until Dec 14 at 12pm, so you will have time to rest and clean up after the race. Sites will be assigned and emailed out the week before the race. Carpooling is recommended.

This event will take place a beautiful Leo Carillo State Beach in Malibu, CA. Here is the website: http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=616. There is walking access to trails, the beach, and tidepools. There is a camp store and even WiFi in some areas. The campground has full bathrooms and pay showers with hot water.

Participants can register as individuals. Individuals will run the course (approx. 10-mi loop) as many times as they want during the 24-hours. There will also be special challenges they must complete. Top three finishers will get special awards.

Teams of three may run this as a relay. Team members register separately, and must indicate their teammates and team name when registering. Only one runner is allowed on the course at-a-time. Top three teams will receive awards.  

There will be a mandatory pre-race briefing at 9am at the camp "ampitheater" on Sat, Dec 13, where all the race logistics will be revealed.  After that, we will proceed to the start area for the official beginning of the race.
