Devil's Backbone Open Space


I am requesting permission to hold a 6½ mile trail running race at Devil’s Back Open Space. The race will be held on Sunday, June 2nd, 2019 with a start time of 7 am. The field will limited to 100 runners.

The course will begin in the parking lot area then head into the trail. After the runners enter the trail they will travel .4 miles then as the trail splits they will be directed to the right to the new Hidden Valley trail. Runners will then travel 2.2 miles until they reach Hunter Loop trail. When Hunters Loop splits they will be directed towards the left. After traveling .3 miles they will begin running on Laughing Horse Loop for .3 miles. When Laughing Horse Loop splits they will directed toward the left again traveling .7 miles.

Runners will begin to head back towards the start of race using the.5 mile section of Laughing Horse Loop. By using a loop course with only few sections traveled twice during the race we will limit the possibility of runners running both ways on the trail. Runners will then travel .3 miles on Laughing Horse Loop trail then completing .4 miles and .6 miles sections of Hunter Loop trail until they reach Wild Loop trail. Traveling .8 miles on lower section of Wild Loop then completing the last .4 miles to finish located in parking lot for Devil’s Backbone Trail Head.

Race with consist of about 15 volunteers performing various duties throughout the race. Packet pick-up will begin at 6:15-6:45 am. One to two volunteers will be located at each junction to direct runners and provide assistance if needed. Each volunteer will have their cell phone and will be in direct contact with me. After completion of the race and award ceremony a team of 5 volunteers will be traveling the course to clean up anything left from the race. Trash will take out and I will have it put will my trash for proper disposal.

1. What are the first aid and/or medical arrangements?

In case of an emergency, volunteers will be instructed to contact the ranger on duty immediately to let them facilitate any necessary emergency response. If a ranger is not immediately available, our volunteers can simply call 911 to have dispatch connect directly to the right person on duty. There will one water station will be located (approximately at mile 3) on course to provide hydration during the race.

2. Insurance coverage?

The race will be covered by Road Runners Clubs of America (www.RRCA.org). The certificate of liability cannot be obtained until January-February of 2019.

3. What are the sanitation requirement and needs?

Devil’s Backbone Trail Head provides two bathroom units but in addition to those I will provide two portable units to address the needs of the runners, volunteers, and spectators.

4. What may be the public safety issues and/or conflicts with other park visitors?

Runners will be notified that they will not be the only ones on the trail. Signs will also be posted notifying the other uses the race is occurring on the date and the approximate time we will be using the trail. I am recommending runners, volunteers, and spectators to carpool because limited parking spaces at trail head. With an early start time of 7 am my hope is to not conflict other users of trail.
