The 2012 Over The Hill Track Club High Desert 50K Ultramarathon and 30K will be held on Sunday, December 2nd. December is a great time for running on our desert roads and trails. Mountain views are plentiful—the southern Sierra Nevada range is obvious to the west, but you may also see a snowy Telescope Peak to the Northeast. Rattlesnakes are hiding for the winter, and temperatures are generally cool. But Mother Nature is always capable of making things more interesting, and anything from wind, rain, snow or even hail, to an unseasonably hot day, may show up to provide us with an added challenge!
This year the High Desert 50k will again host USATF Southern California Association 50 km Trail Championship, as well as the Southern California RRCA State Championship. We are also the last stop for the Southern California UltraRunners Grand Prix Series. As always we have some great sponsors joining us, and we hope you will all use their fine products.
Race director Terry Mitchell and her team are gearing up for another great run. We’re looking forward to again sharing our running trails with all of our old and new ultra friends. Don’t miss out on a fun day in the beautiful Mojave Desert! Come join us again, and bring your friends! We’re looking forward to seeing you all in December.
