The Coyote Backbone Trail Ultra is a point-to-point event. Bus transportation will be provided from the finish area at the Ray Miller trailhead in Pt. Mugu State park to the start at Will Rogers State Park.
The games begin with a staggered start, with more methodical players beginning before those intent on spending less time enjoying the views. The goal is to round up everyone at the finish line more or less at the same time, and to ensure lots of bonding time amongst players along the way.
The prelimary start group assignments are listed below, based on the most recent team roster. If you have a plausible reason why you should be re-assigned to different group than shown, try your negotiation skills with the head buffoon using the Contact form on the website (link below.) Remember, though, that this is not a race, so rationale that hints at that focus won’t have much traction. We prefer you lope along the Backbone Trail comfortably well-nourished, and entertained by your surroundings and fellow coyotes, and a race mentality may jeopardize any/all of these considerations.

Registration opens 2 hours before your respective starting time, and your bus leaves 1 hour before. If’n you’re not on time, you’ll need to make your own way to the ballpark.
