OTHTC holds half marathon

The Over the Hill Track Club will host its KO Half Marathon Saturday, Nov. 4. Registration will begin at 6:30 a.m., with walkers starting at 7 a.m. and runners starting at 7:30 a.m.

“It’s a good training run for the Ultra in December,” said a spokesperson, referring to the 30- and 50-mile event coming Dec. 3.

The course is approximately 13 miles long, starting and finishing in the dirt parking lot south of Cerro Coso Community College. The track will include challenging climbs and a fast three-mile downhill finish. Aid stations will be held around the 3- 6- and 9-mile points.

Top male and female finishers will be awarded in both walking and running categories. Although there is no entry fee, donations will be accepted to defray costs. For information call Eric Kajiwara at 760-375-1779.
