Hi. Can anyone give me a good description of the course? I'm doing the 50k and I'd like to have an idea of what I've gotten myself into. My frame of reference only includes Southern Cal events ( Ridgecrest, Bulldog, Born to Run, Bandit). is it a "runnable" course or are the uphold so steep that it's best to hike? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

There's a relatively short (.40 mi)/steep (400') section leaving the start area up Canyon Trail to East Ridge. The rest of the course is gradual and very runnable. Elevation gain for the 50k is 3,800'. Our 50K event at Malibu Creek SP has 6,000' elevation gain.
