I have run other Keira Henninger races and plan to continue with any race she directs. Leona Divide is no different and I will be back. On the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) out of either Lancaster/Palmdale area or Castaic/Santa Clarita area, it is an awesome trail race. The distances are 30k, 50k and 50 miler. Keira always provides a wonderful, caring experience. This is a family; a community. A cute tank and insulated lunch tote were the swag for this year and you also get a custom made and designed wood medal. Top 3 finishers for each race and gender get custom wood medals. They are AWESOME! And by racing, you get to hang out with some expert trail pros. Chills for days! The course is on the PCT and it was 18-19 miles of stunning views, single track trails and elevation for days. This is hard; it's trails and it is loads of hills. Be prepared! The aid stations are fully stocked with not just gels and electrolytes, but with food! Loads of delicious tasty actual food. Seriously you will have to prompt yourself to move on and not hang out eating and chatting with the friendly, helpful volunteers. After the race, Keira provides a lunch. This year was soup, chili, sandwiches and other treats. I hung out all day eating and chatting and watching all the other racers come in. Some amazing performances! If you love trails, this is for you.
