I was thinking of heading to Santos and doing the Epic on Memorial Day.. Anyone want to join me? May stash some extra water and supplies at the Land bridge trails head....

I don't want to sound TOO ignorant, but what exactly is the epic?  Distance?  Does it include the reds?  I would be interested,  just need to know if I can hang.  Thanks.

The OMBA Epic starts and ends at Santos Trail Head. it does not include any red trails it is about 50 miles with the new section after CR 484 included....  http://www.omba.org/images/stories/2006/epic/index.htm




you can print the maps to see what trails are included, just know it does go farther west now to CR 200

Thanks for the maps.  How early of a start are you thinking of doing?  I am very interested and could probably sucker another rider to join me.

I clocked 48.4 when I did the epic during the Santos FTF. If I were to do it again I think I'd mix in some of the Santos side reds.

10-11 moving average or 10-11 effective average? :)

(hint: one of those is probably out of my grasp for a 50-miler, and the other might just just juuust be do-able on the blues and yellows)

Darrin just park at the landbridge trail head, that way you can do the half out to Nayls and back. Stop for lunch, then do the santos side and return. Ends up being about half way.
