The San Gabriel back country retains much of the natural beauty, if not the primitive wilderness of yesteryear.Those desiring to see much of this primitive wilderness in a single day are invited to participate in the Angeles Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run.
The race is remarkably true to the original course laid out by Del Beaudoin in 1986 although minor revisions have been made. The trail travels through trees and shrub over dirt and even the open sandy terrain.
This is a true nature run and runners are invited to race and interact with nature!
