This is the list of safety gear you need to carry with you during the 50K race. If you are missing an item during a gear check you will be disqualified or not allowed to start.
Due to the remote, mountain environment and challenging aspect of this course, it is required to have completed at least a 50K trail race or the Volcanic 25K prior to race day, for the 50K. You will enter a link to your previous result during the registration process. There is no pre-requisite for the 25K. The Volcanic 25K will count as a pre-req for the 50K though!
We’ve been very fortunate to have been granted permission to hold this race in a sensitive but beautiful environment.
Because this is not a typical 50K! We say to expect a finish time more like a 50-miler than a 50K. The course is tough and there are rugged sections where you will not be able to run.
No pacing. If you have a crew and they want to hike about 5 miles into one of the aid stations, great! However, it would be difficult for them to get into more than one aid station. It is very difficult to get to AS 3 or AS 4 and get back in time to see the finish.
No. Dogs are not allowed on the course or at the aid stations. Well-behaved and leashed dogs are welcome at the start and finish.
No. You will have to carry your own gear (remember the mandatory race gear).
You bet! Please sign up by clicking the green Volunteer button on the Ultrasignup registration page.
Yes, you can sleep in your vehicle, or pitch a tent on the ground in front of your car, in the parking lot at Marble Mountain Sno Park, where the race start/finish is. We need to park a lot of vehicles though, so park tightly and don’t take up more than one space.
