The road twists and turns thru the canyon; a true treasure of the Spring Mountains N.R.A. and the Las Vegas Valley.

The trails are steep, rocky, inaccessible and long. There is more than ten thousand vertical feet of gain and descent packed into the relatively short 35 miles. Experienced runners will tell you that Nine-Trails runs like a tough 50 miler. Athletes attempting this course should be prepared for long, slow sections with no support.

It's a 50K with a little bit of everything... single track along the Pacific Crest Trail, a more than 2,000 foot drop into the desert, a run through the beautiful desert scenery of Box Canyon, and then the climactic 5+ mile climb back up via Oriflamme Canyon.
Come experience the beauty of the Tar Springs Ranch. These mountains get painted brilliant green every spring with God's paintbrush and we are sure you will enjoy every mile & moment out there. Located just southeast of Arroyo Grande and in the Huasna Valley, the challenging course offers a great variety of terrain with oak tree canopies, open valleys, and majestic views. And to enhance your experience we have turned this into full trail party with camping, food, entertainment, and of course some of the best trails you will ever discover.
Each event will be more about the time on the trails and good time after the race (cold refreshments are served), not so much about your time on the clock. These will not be PR courses.

Come out to a NJ Trail Series event if you enjoy fun, getting out for some exercise and meeting new friends.

The Leona Divide 50 was the brainchild of Bob Kimmerly who in late 1991 with his friends John Swallow and Don Hughes mapped out a 50 mile course through the beautiful Angeles National Forest near Lake Hughes. A portion of the race traveled the Leona Divide Truck Trail and passed through Leona Divide twice, hence the name. Losing his battle with cancer in January of 1992, Bob never saw his dream, but his family and friends made sure it became a reality in April of 1992.
What you need to know about Ultramarathon running
An ultramarathon is any running race longer than a traditional marathon of 26.2 miles. Most of them take place on trails, often surrounded by spectacular scenery, and involve continuously stuffing your face to keep your body going mile after mile. At the extreme end, ultras can involve running more than 300km over multiple days through mountains, deserts, jungles and snow. But if this is your first ultra, you might want to start with something a little shorter, like a “gentle” 50km.
