              L.A. 50-50 A TRAIL OF CHOICES  5/12/13
Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled due to lack
of interest.  We apologize for any inconvenience this
may have caused.

A day of trail heaven with like minded people.  Come by yourself or bring your support crew
(family and friends), your bike and/or running shoes.  Run and/or bike and hang out on the
shores of Milford Lake all day if you want.  Lunch and dinner will be delivered on site, so you
can relax and refresh and visit in between the dirt.  The only thing not available on site will be
beer at the finish--add to your gear list if you want.  

The Course
10.5 mile loops of trail at Milford State Park consisting of single track and mowed path
through the woods, ravines and along the beautiful shores of Milford Lake.  Great trail for
speed, terrain variation, shade, some nice hills and a few technical spots.  See the
page for more information on the course and for lodging/activities in the area.  Bike helmet
is required while biking.  Type of bike you ride is up to you, no requirement.  However,
mountain bike is recommended/bike repair kit  suggested.

All net proceeds for the 5k run/walk will go the local United Way.  Please support our
local community!

    has never happened (last 4 years).  There's nothing wrong with a little rain, mud and
    wind--but if there is potential for really severe weather or long term damage to trails,
    the weather postponement would be posted 24 hrs prior to race.
