Buzzards Roost up & over
Because of COVID – 19 restrictions still in place, this run is only for paying members through UltraSignup (see link on top) of the current year 2020.
YES we currently do accept new memberships.
NO we currently don’t accept drop in runners.
We have staggered start times so that only groups of maximum 5 start and run together while keeping the proper distance and wear a mask or buff when passing others on the trail. We ask that everyone is respecting the safety guidelines.
Members should have an email in their mailbox weekly by Wednesday night (or the latest by Thursday night) with details for the following Sunday run.
Currently we have runs scheduled week by week until these unprecedented times are over, then we’ll have a full schedule again weeks or months in advance, just like the old times.
Thank you for your understanding,
This is an out & back run on Zuma Canyon fire road.
With the heat we’re having this weekend: WEAR A HAT – PLEASE TURN AROUND WHEN YOU FEEL IT’S GETTING TOO MUCH – BRING PLENTY WATER & ELECTROLYTES – START EARLY – BRING AN ICE COLD DRINK ON ICE IN A COOLER FOR WHEN YOU FINISH !
You have the option to start at either side, the valley side on “Encinal Road” or from the beach side at the end of “Bush Drive”. This will be fun as we’ll have runners coming from both directions. If you do the entire distance you’ll have a very hard 12 mile run.
The map shows the way starting on Encinal road, this is definitely the harder way to do because you’ll have the long climb on the way back.
It’s all exposed so you’ll need to bring plenty water, none on the course.
This run will NOT be marked as we’re just following the main fire road.
