Priority registration for the Saturday, April 8th Vision Quest and Counting Coup and Saturday, May 13th Trabuco Challenge will open to those who competed in the 2016 event on November 1st with open registration to the general public opening on November 7th. An email will be sent out with a code to the 2016 participants to allow them to register during priority registration. 

We hope to have you back for the 2017 King and Queen of Saddleback Mountain Series. The Trabuco Challenge will be the series final and we plan to have it be a family friendly event. We plan on improving our staging area by renting tables and chairs from a party rental supplier and for the Vision Quest and Counting Coup we plan on allowing you to drop a car off at the finish line overnight so you don’t have to take the shuttle.
