BLU (Beyond Limits Ultra) MULTI DAY RACE
There are no boundaries at Pathfinder Ranch, one of Southern California’s premier educational sleep away camps! Push beyond your perceived limits on 72 private acres of Wildlife Preserve and surrounding forest meadows situated south of Palm Springs in the San Jacinto Mountains at a comfortable altitude of 4,500 feet. Now entering its 5th year, the Beyond Limits Ultra has established itself as one of the most unique ultra events in the southwest.
What makes this two mile loop event so unique? How about a big runner sleepover where runners sleep on-site, only feet away from the course, in bunk style heated cabins with hot showers. Multi-day races are hard enough, so why not skip the frost covered frozen tent and take your breaks in comfortable warmth. In addition to running, you’ll be reliving your camping youth as you and your fellow runners and crew enjoy mixing it up with the farm animals and horses, canoeing around the lake, climbing the ropes course, and of course making s’mores by the campfire. Did we mention the course meanders all through the ranch where you can keep yourself pleasantly distracted by watching crew and friends enjoy camp activities as you click-off mile after mile. While we are known for having a top of the line aid station, we will be augmenting our daily offerings this year by having Pathfinder’s culinary team deliver a catered breakfast and diner to the aide station every day. Not to worry, we will still be cooking up lunch, as well as on-demand meals and our own unique goodies like frozen grapes and popsicles. Whether you are running the 72/48/24 hour races, or the 100 mile, 50 mile, or 50K races, you will be treated like a VIP by your fellow ultra running RD’s and their incredible volunteers.
And by the way, if you happen to love race bling, this event is for you! Every runner who toes the starting line receives a large medal, along with a high-end sublimated tech shirt and a goodie bag stuffed full of fun stuff. 100 mile finishers receive a large buckle, while 200 mile finishers receive their own special buckle. If you happen to run 300 miles, we will special order you the biggest medal ever! This race sells-out each year, so take advantage of the best value in multi-day ultra running and register today
