The Calgonquin 50k
Saturday, April 17th 2021
Distance: 50k-ish, 31-ish miles (keep in mind these are trails and your GPS watches may lie to you, prepare to possibly run further than what your watch displays)
Dirt and Vert are calling.
Welcome to the first ever Calgonquin 50k located in the beautiful rolling hills of Tehachapi, California. This is will be a 50k with lots of elevation change and a few serious climbs. We are excited to have you join us and experience the trails we love in California.
Cutoff: The final cutoff time for this event is 10 hours (5:30pm) Runners will be expected to carry the slowest pace possible throughout the entire course. If a runner falls significantly behind pace, The Calgonquin Crew reserves the right to pull a runner from the race at anytime and anywhere on the course.
This course is exclusively on trails. The trails are single track and can be dangerous both climbing up the hills and running down the hills.
Be prepared for beautiful California spring weather.
There is no rain date. We will run in the rain, snow, and sleet.
Only a "force majeure" which makes EMS, aid stations and support staff unable to function will be cause for cancellation.
Swag will include all sorts of stuff that runners love and that represent the Tehachapi area.
Awards for the top 3 men and top 3 women...
The Calgonquin 50k is a community-based, eco-friendly, volunteer supported, event whose mission is to promote, maintain, increase trails use in Tehachapi. We work closely with local mountain trail association and the trail community in large to provide a safe, fun, exciting race.
