The Saddle2Surf Story
The 2019 Saddle2Surf 100/50 Mile Run began in 2010 as the 100 Mile Endurance Challenge, a race to support the mission, vision, schools, and children of the 100 Mile Club. Since then, it took a little break, went through a few course changes and has reemerged as the Saddle2Surf 100/50.
Back with a new name and slightly new route, and carrying the same mission, vision, and spirit as always: This run is dedicated to supporting and promoting the 100 Mile Club, and helping the next generation of runners become Healthy, Happy, and Connected...one mile at a time. This is an old-school 100 mile, urban 100-mile run. And it is all for our kids.
The challenge? Run 100 miles from Norco to Huntington Beach and back, or 50 miles from Norco to Huntington Beach. Either way your run will begin in Norco, CA (AKA Horsetown USA) and visit the beautiful California coast. On this run, you will experience the beauty and the beast that is Southern California.
Saddle2Surf 100/50 is open!
NEW Relay Divisions
This year we're adding 50 mile and 100 mile relay divisions. If you're eager to join our relay divisions, all you need is a team captain to register. There is only 1 registration fee per team. So, have your captain sign up and get training!

The route for this run begins in Norco, CA at 100 Mile Club HQ and hits Huntington Beach close the the Main St Pier (mile 50) and for the 100 mile distance, heads back to the 100 Mile Club head quarters in Norco, CA for an epic finish line celebration! Yes, a large portion of the course is ran along the Santa Ana River Trail. The actual course is subject to change at any moment due to road closures, construction, and other variables. It is our goal to keep this route as consistent as possible and communicate changes as they arise.
Because this event is held in urban areas across Southern California, it is imperative that you confidently learn the course prior to the race. Any course markings placed on the course will be tampered with, removed, and altered beyond our control, so you and your crew are your best assets.
Learn the course! Training runs/course preview meetups will be held in the months/weeks leading up to the run, so stay connected!
Crew, Pacers, & Support
It's just you...and your CREW
This run is 100% crew-supported. There are no aid stations or drop bags, only a start line, time/bracelet stations, and a finish line. Each runner must be accompanied by a support crew comprised of no more than one four-wheeled motor vehicle and at least two crew members – two of whom are legally licensed to drive. Entrants may have no more than one support vehicle on the race course. You will be on small streets with VERY limited parking, making turns and U-turns to support your runner, so be very mindful of the size and practicality of your vehicle.
