Course: Starting at Howard's Creek Trailhead, you will hike 3 miles to the ridge. You must then tag two turnpoints: Nordhoff Peak (2.3 mi from the ridge/HC intersection) and Chief's Peak (3-5mi from Ridge/HC intersection, depending on which launch you choose). After tagging both turnpoints, find a suitable launch before making the flight to Ojai. Choose your own landing site at your own risk prior to making your way to Topa Topa Brewery in downtown Ojai where the clock stops. We suggest downloading maps prior to starting the race as cell service is marginal. Links to youtube videos where we discuss the couse in more detail are in the telegram group. There will be a resupply on the ridgeline* with water and snacks.
