Sean O’Brian 50/50 Race Support

Feb. 5, 2022

            The Sean O’Brian 50/50 is centered on the Malibu
            Creek Campground State Park. It is two ultra-marathon
            races on the same course w/staggered start times.
            They are a 100 kilometer (60 mile) and a 50 mile
            trail run. The Aid Stations (AS) are all several
            miles apart, so our support is to help check that all
            the runners are accounted for at each AS and
            finally, at the Finish amd to communicate any
            issues to the race director.
            Volunteer communicators from several clubs
            support the race communications which is
            coordinated by the Hughes ARC.
            The Club sets up its portable repeater high on the
            Castro Motor Way ridge, providing communica-
            tions from the Start-Finish and NCS on one side of
            the ridge to the Aid Stations, most of which are on
            the other side of the ridge.
            Club members and others interested in
            volunteering should contact Dale, WB6MMQ.
            Dale, WB6MMQ
            Race Coordinator, Hughes ARC
