Rules on the course
Please thank every volunteer you see on the course. They gave up a day of their life to help you have a great experience.
No Trash on the course
We will be sharing the trail with others. Please be friendly to hikers, runners, mountain bikers and anyone on a horse. Right of way goes to any horse and mountain bikers are supposed to allow runners the right of way but it’s ok to let them by and say a quick hello.
Trails will be marked with flour arrows and / or bright marking tape but there is no guarantee that you won't get lost. Hikers may tamper with the arrows. Other running clubs or mountain biking groups often mark their own arrows that may be mistaken for ours. Fatigue may cause you to miss an arrow. Bottom line; you are responsible for finding your own way!
Please announce your runner# at each aid station
No pacers allowed
Trekking poles are allowed this year
Crews are allowed at the Marrland and Open Space aid stations. Driving directions are on the website. While they are waiting for you Please have them pitch in and help our aid stations.
Only 1 earbud (2 is rude and dangerous)
30k and 50k runners must carry 1 water bottle minimum
Slower runners give Right-of-Way to allow faster runners to pass
Don’t cut switchbacks
Notify a Bandit Crew member if you leave the race or drop-out. Seriously folks we do not want to be looking for you out on the course if you've left in addition, you will receive the bill from Search and Rescue.
Dropdowns are allowed this year during the race but you may not quality for an age division award. The Marrland Aid station at mile 10 is your last chance to decide.
Drop bags will be driven to the Marrland aid station (mile 9 & 20) for all 50k runners and returned after the last cut off at 1:00 p.m. Please make sure and drop off your bag at registration and put your runner# or name on your bag.

Looking forward to RAIN this Winter and Looking forward to seeing you all out there February 15, 2015!
2014 Bandit Ultra Trail Run review
Chugging up the steep hill I thought about how the run had gone so far. Even if it was a little warm, it was still a pretty good day for a trail run! I hadn’t tried to push the pace on the initial steep climb from Corriganville, and had (mostly) resisted the temptation to pound down the Chumash Trail. The crazy-steep section of Hot Dog Hill on the out and back section of the course felt just as steep and insane as it did last year and the downhill to the Open Space aid station just as pleasant...
