OVERVIEW:
Team SISU is proud to bring you this one-of-a-kind event. We will be running the trails of Altadena 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 (arriving after 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. Parking will be on the street and is limited, so carpooling is recommended.
 
This event will take place a beautiful Henninger Flats and the trails around Eaton Canyon.  Some hiking up the campsite is required.  We will require hikers to be at Eaton Canyon Nature Center by 6am on Saturday, so that we can all start the event together at the campsite.  There are pit toilets, no showers, and no running water.  We recommend you bring ready-to-eat meals and snacks.  You will be required to bring your own water as well.
 
Participants can register as individuals. Individuals will run various designated trails 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. All three runners can be on the course at the same time, and each person can score separately.  Scores will be tallied up to determine a winner.   Members of the top team will receive awards.  
 
There will be a mandatory pre-race briefing at 8:30am at the campsite 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.
