Sean O’Brian 50/50 Race Support
Feb. 5, 2022
The Sean O’Brian 50/50 is centered on the Malibu Creek Campground State Park. It is two ultra-marathon races on the same course w/staggered start times. They are a 100 kilometer (60 mile) and a 50 mile trail run. The Aid Stations (AS) are all several miles apart, so our support is to help check that all the runners are accounted for at each AS and finally, at the Finish amd to communicate any issues to the race director. Volunteer communicators from several clubs support the race communications which is coordinated by the Hughes ARC. The Club sets up its portable repeater high on the Castro Motor Way ridge, providing communica- tions from the Start-Finish and NCS on one side of the ridge to the Aid Stations, most of which are on the other side of the ridge. Club members and others interested in volunteering should contact Dale, WB6MMQ. Dale, WB6MMQ Race Coordinator, Hughes ARC See current Newsletter for contact information.
