No, you are running solo or with whoever you feel safe running with. Be careful, make sure you know how to navigate, bring water and food, and prepare for extreme changes in coastal weather. You must be 100% self-reliant to run a Race the Commons race.
Directions to the start.
For directions to the start line, search Badger Hills Trailhead, Fort Ord National Monument on Google Maps. Plenty of parking available. Once you park, walk from the Badger Hills Parking lot for about two minutes (with 68 on your left) until you hit the bridge. The race starts when your foot hits the bridge (that’s when you start your watch). The video makes it totally clear.
