      Register here for the event:

      We are headed south to the Salton Sea for our first Southern California Adventure. This weekend is broken up into two parts. Day 1 is a long trail run that loops around the east side of the lake to see several sights in the area. Day 2 is all about fun and goofing off in the home of desert pre-runners of Ocotillo Wells.

      We will be using one hotel as a base of operation to do the out and back trail runs. For those who wish to camp you are welcome to find a place to pitch a tent. For those bring family members who do not want to go on the trails, there will be a group seeing local area attractions for kids and adults alike.

      * Hotels are billed at a group rate with taxes included.
      * Whole Foods boxed lunches include sandwich, pasta salad, fruit, cookie, and soda.



      !! - Hotel deadline is march 24 to secure a room at group rate. - !!
      After this deadline you are on you own and may not have a room as most hotels are booked!
