2023 Avalon 50k

Date: January 7th, 2023
Time: 7:03:32 (13:10 pace)

View from the Aurora Hotel. We later went to watch Casablanca at the amazingly huge old school theater.
Avalon 50k route. The highlighted point is the top of the initial climb.
We started before sunrise, but there was no need for a headlamp. The dawn started coming in just as we left the town.
We got absolutely spectacular views from the top. The first picture is a view towards Avalon and the second is the ocean on the back side.
The entire course is either on a packed dirt or old asphalt.
On the ridgeline, with a view towards Avalon
We reached the Catalina Airport, from where it was downhill to Two Harbors.
Route to, and at, Two Harborts
From there it was however a long uphill climb back up. We passed a 'bar' aid station that was serving warm food and also alcohol.
Finally a view of Avalon and the final push to the finish line.
