Just two days after Twin Peaks the Santa Ana Mountains saw snow. Just 4 days later that snow was nearly 1 foot deep in places (according to local resident Steve Harvey). It’s pretty likely the race would have been canceled by the Forest Service if that had happened as no aid would have been possible for the runners.
Check out this OC Register article and especially that first picture in their slide show. Amazing!!
Happy Running & Dirty (or snowy) feet,
