ALQ Ultras will hold the inaugural Calgonquin in the beautiful hills of Tehachapi, on the Lehigh Trails system on Saturday, April 17, 2021.

The trail running event will start with the 50k at 6:30 a.m. and the 25k at 7 a.m. and is open to all.

Runners/hikers will have 12 hours to complete the 50k and 11 1/2 hours to complete the 25k. The course is 100 percent on trails, with most being single track.

The Calgonquin is a community-based, eco-friendly, volunteer supported event whose mission is to promote, maintain and increase trails use in Tehachapi. We work closely with the Tehachapi Mountain Trail Association and the local community to provide a safe, fun and exciting race.
