Palos-Dean Ultra Challenge this Weekend Still Time to Register – Race Information Below’s Palos-Dena Ultra Challenge 52.4 and 26.2 – One Weekend, Two Races, from the Mountains to the Sea




Here we go, We are inside 48 hours before we start the challenge.

Make sure you are registered for both races.

We will have a tent at each Finish Line Festival for you to check out (so we can record your finish) and you can pick up your certificate and Phiten goodies. Look for the Palos-Dena Ultra Challenge signs and Sole Runners banners. That’s our tent.

Friday or Saturday when you go to the Pasadena Expo, stop by the Phiten booth and feel free to ask for VIP service. Tell them that you are a Palos-Dena Challenge runner and they will tape you up and give you some extras to take home.

You can register or pick up your registration materials on site at Palos Verdes or Friday at Dicks. You will need to ride a bus from a parking lot to the start line.

**Important** Please get to the parking areas early. They have lots of buses but the main parking lot is a few miles away from the starting line because there is no parking close to the starting line. The bus ride will take about 15 minutes.

You don’t need to check in (feel free too) but you need to stop by our tent after you finish your races. Saturday, once you finish your race and have cooled down, come over to our tent and pick up your Phiten bag. It has a coupon for a special gift that you can pick up from their store on your way home. You can also get taped up at their store for your Sunday race.

Once you finish Pasadena and cool down, please come to our tent. At that time you will be able to pick up your Phiten necklace. You will have a choice between a 18″ or 22″ necklace. As of now we have 22 challengers and I want to get you the right size shirt. I didn’t know how many shirts and what sizes to print and people are still registering so I will have to print and ship the shirts to each of you after the race. On Saturday make sure we have all the right information.

I want to get some pictures and if you know me, I’ll be taking video. Look for me. Good luck and see you there. Please feel free to email me or call me at 818-414-9181.
