Join us in the scenic Santa Monica Mountains Recreation Area beginning at our base camp in Malibu Creek State Park where you will run past the famous MASH site before climbing up the infamous Bulldog Motorway to Castro Peak where you will be rewarded with miles of views of the Pacific Ocean before you wind down into the park for a fast finish! If you are bold enough to enter the 50K...
you get to do it twice!
BIB PICKUP INFO
Bulldog has a non-duplication awards policy so a runner who finishes First Overall does not qualify to win an Age Division Award.
WEATHER ON RACE DAY 08/13/18 - Weather on race day is expected to be a high of 82 in Calabasas.
The weather in August usually remains cool and overcast with ocean fog until around 8:30 to 9:00 AM then begins heating up. Afternoon race temperatures have historically ranged from 85F to 108F (29C - 42C). One important aspect of training for this race is to be properly heat acclimated. Do your homework and Google "heat training for summer ultra marathons".
On race day, the course is marked with surveyor ribbons and arrows on the ground. There is always a possibility that hikers may tamper with course markings and this cannot be controlled. Always keep your eyes alert to your whereabouts. It is unlikely that you will get lost during the race. If you notice you are not seeing arrows or ribbons, simply back-track to the last mark you saw and you will be back on track.
Sweepers will head out from the starting line and will stay behind the last participant. Sweepers will pull ribbons and yes, they will actually carry brooms to sweep arrows. Because course marking may be removed behind you, it is imperative that runners always move forward on the race course, to avoid getting lost.
CREWS & SPECTATORS are not permitted on the race course or at the Aid Stations at any time. We provide seven aid stations for the 50K and you may have drop bags at mile 15 so crews are not required. Please ask your friends, family and fans to enjoy their day and wait for you at the finish line.
