Coyote Cohorts, the loose brains and competent muscle behind Coyote Two Moon, Coyote FourPlay, and Cajun Coyote, proudly present Game 3 of the Coyote Backbone Trail Ultra, a point-to-point  traverse of  Southern California’s Santa Monica Mountains from  Will Rogers State Park to the Ray Miller Trail. Be among the lucky few to rock the ridgeline for 68 miles of superb single track, knee-knackering climbs and descents, and above all the true camaraderie of fellow happy wanderers.  The 68 miles can be run as a Fun Run or a Competitive Run. Choose your option but understand that once you have committed, you can’t change. We added a 100 miler this year, we picked some great climbs and serene valleys for your enjoyment. For the 100 miler we require completion of one of these 100 mile qualifiers.

The fun is served up with the legendary, uniquely goofy Coyote hospitality: equitably distributed abuse, randomly distributed swag, normal and paranormal aid station fare, slightly touched but highly eager volunteers, and spiffy trail running apparel from sponsor Patagonia.

Important note: Do not let our tone of slight frivolity fool you – this is not an Coyote Farm Animalsevent for beginning trail runners. Please visit our registration page for details on who can play.  For the 100 miler we require completion of one of these 100 mile qualifiers.
