Please NOTE: Based on feedback from this and dozens of other races we manage, we are offering this event at a below average price with the option to buy a tshirt or other schwag if you decide you like/need them. You will be given the option to add the extra stuff on your registration. We will have items for sale at the race, but will be slightly higher in price and 1st come, 1st served for sizes.
Updated maps and elevation to be posted ASAP.
Despite the intimidating description above, EVERYONE CAN DO THIS. IT will not be your fastest race, but if you come prepared, just keep moving, utilize the aide stations and the energy of your fellow trail runners, then you WILL be the proud owner of a 35.4k medal. If you do drop out, PLEASE let one of the race crew know. It is PERTINENT that you inform one of the race crew so that we do not think you are lost when you don’t come through the next check point.
Optional shirt design here (coming soon). What we post here is the artist rendering of our proof that we are basing our purchase on.
