    Across the Years offers fixed-time races of 24, 48, 72 and 144 hours. It is held at Camelback Ranch which is the spring training facility for the LA Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox. Given that it is a venue for a professional sport, the grounds are very well manicured and designed. The course is mainly a packed dirt path around a picturesque lake with resident Canada Geese, Cormorants, and Mallard ducks. The start/finish line is located on a “main street” with a spectator tent with chairs, a warming tent with tables and chairs and charging stations, and a communal sleeping tent with cots that are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is also an option of renting a tent with a cot, or you can camp out along a straight stretch at the far end of the course. The course itself is a 1.048 mile loop, which means that every 21 miles, you get an extra (bonus) mile added to your total. The weather this year was about 15 degrees below normal and it rained for most of a day. It is still a much better option than running in the more northern latitudes during the first of the year. Hot food is served about every 6 hours, and typical ultra food is available any time at the one fully-stocked aid station. It was fun seeing so many famous ultra runners this year, including the Jester, Ed Ettinghausen, Ann Trason, Catra Corbett and her famous running Dachsund, Truman, and Davy Crockett. Several American and Canadian records were set, and Don Winkley broke the 80-85 year old age group World Record formerly held by Ted Corbitt by almost 21 miles. It’s such an iconic race that every endurance runner should do it at least once in their lifetime.
