    The Beyond Limits Ultra is a series of races at the Pathfinder Ranch in the mountains near Idyllwild. The longest distance is the 100 miler and the shortest is the marathon. The course consists of a 2 mile loop that is repeated until you achieve your distance.
    The loop was actually quite nice with different terrain. There was a section around the pond, a sandy section, a paved section (or dirt shoulder if you want), and a very pretty forest section. The course was flat but overall it was at 4,500 ft so elevation was an issue for some people. There were bathrooms and showers all over the course which is always a good thing. There was one aid station that was well stocked and manned. Plus lots of spots to set up your own table which many runners did.
    Many people spent the night in the cabins at the Ranch. Breakfast was provided in the dining hall so you could gather with the other runners before the race. Food was available during the race along with water and sports drink. They even had an ice bucket to dip your hats and bandanas into.
    This was a very well run race. The race directors clearly are runners themselves and know how to organize a race like this. The looped course might seem boring but it gives you a chance to see other runners many times. You can support them, and get support in turn from them.
