Punti salienti del corso
The Old Goat 50 Mile Trail Race is a modified figure eight course that starts and finishes at Blue Jay Campground, located in the Trabuco region of the Cleveland National Forest. The first loop of the race takes place on a twenty mile technical single track that meanders down through oak and sycamore lined canyons and then up onto ridges high above the Ortega Corridor. It then descends from the ridge to the famous “Candy Store” aid station at mile 11. From the Candy Store the runners continue on the lollypop loop and return to Bluejay.
From Bluejay the race begins the first serious climb of the race, a 1000′ journey up a narrow truck trail. The course then descends 2500′ on a 5 mile rocky technical trail into the Mountain Community of Holy Jim Canyon, the half way point. From Holy Jim canyon the race again turns uphill, climbing 4,000’in the next 7.5 miles to the Summit of Santiago Peak, the highest point in the Santa Ana Mountains. Although it’s a 2000′ net downhill from the Antenna Fields at Santiago peak to the finish, there is still 1500′ of UP! The final miles of the race occur on the Main Divide Truck Trail with aid stations every 2.5 miles.
