2016 Vision Quest and Trabuco Challenge Preliminary Results

The preliminary results are in and the links posted below. Next week we will post the write-up for the event. 

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.

Maple Springs/Silverado and the North Main Divide between Black Star and Maple Springs has been reopened. The Forest Service has an Urban Conservation Corp group out working on the Silverado (motorway) trail for three days removing brush and making repairs.

Trabuco Canyon (Holy Jim) may be closed a few more days to address hot spots. The Warrior’s Society will be brushing Holy Jim and West Horse Thief on October 8th in preparation for the event. 

The Vision Quest and Counting Coup will not be affected and pending any additional fires in the area will be held on October 22nd.

Trabuco Challenge Update

To all the participants in the Trabuco Challenge:

The event is Saturday, May 14th stating at the Parker Ranch located at 31651 Trabuco Canyon Road, Trabuco Canyon, CA. 92679.

On our web site (www.warriorssociety.org) there is a link for the Trabuco Challenge, which has a link to a map to the ranch.

The Forest Service has informed us that Upper Holy Jim is not a “sanctioned” trail, which is news to us as we’ve been using it for the Vision Quest and Counting Coup for 15 years and have submitted trail work reports to them for 20 years. A decision has not been made yet to allow us to including that in the pro-course (and future VQ’s and CC’s) so the pro’s may race the intermediate course without Upper Holy Jim if permission is not granted by race time.

Based on the ages of the participants we will have the following classes with awards given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place:

Youth under 18
Female (in the intermediate class)
30 to 50
50 to up.

Packet pickup will start at 6:30 with the pro race starting at 8:00 and the intermediate race starting at 8:30. You are responsible to carry all water and food needed for the race. We will have support staff with emergency water on the course – but only for emergencies.

Bring a chair to relax in for after the race. Food will be served starting around 12:30 – 1:00 p.m. with the awards being held around 2 to 3:00 p.m.

Thank you for your support of our events.
