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 special challenges and scoring, for those of you who are competitive. Individuals and teams of 3 can compete. Run / hike as much or as little of the trails in one day as you want. 
The run will begin at 9am on Dec 12. You are welcome to come before (arriving after 2pm, Dec 11) to setup and camp out. The event will end at 9am on Dec 13. We have the campsites until Dec 13 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 nearby trails.  Some hiking up the campsite is required.  We will require hikers to meet at TBA location in Altadena by 6am on Saturday, so that we can all hike up and 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. To register as a team, select the "team" option from the drop-down box and write-in the names of your team members in the box below that. All three runners can be on the course at the same time, and each person can score separately.  Scores will be tallied up at the end to determine a winner.   Members of the top team will receive awards.  
There will be a mandatory pre-start briefing at 8:30am at the campsite on Sat, Dec 12, where all the event logistics will be revealed.  After that, we will proceed to the start area for the official beginning of the event.
