The relay and the ultra will happen on Saturday, 04 April, 2020, starting at 7:00 am (relay) and ‘earlier’ for the ultrarunners, beginning at Toro Canyon Park, near Carpinteria, and finishing at Nojoqui Falls on the far side of Solvang. Teams comprise five or if necessary fewer runners, each running two (or more) legs. Advice for first-time teams is on the Course Description page. The entry form is here.

Is this blog it? Yes. There is no Facebook page, nor will there ever be. You think you know they’re slimebags, but they’re worse than you think. Google used to be better but decreasingly so over time. If you think employees at Apple or Amazon or Google or Facebook or literally thousands of other companies should know every time you have sex or hit the refrigerator in the middle of the night or discuss new drapes, something they currently do (unless you avoid Alexa/Google Assistant/Siri and store your phones in the microwave whenever not using them), be aware letting them have that information is a decision you can’t unmake. (You know your TV is not only selling your viewing habits but assessing your family composition, whether you have kids and their approximate ages, and your socioeconomic class and selling that information to whomever, right?) If you’re interested in educating yourself, the Electronic Frontier Foundation is a good start.

That’s the long (really, the short) version of why it’s only this blog, and why there are paper entry forms and no electronic payment.
