Come on out for this super fun format that we used for the last 4 years (this is year 5)! And don't forget to bring a headlamp if you think you'll be running when darkness falls.

 This is how it works: starting at 9am, everyone has 1 hour to complete the 5.8k loop. If you finish loop 1 before 10am, you get to sit, socialize, and rest until the next loop starts at 10am. This continues every hour until only one runner can complete the loop under 1 hour. If you are over 1 hour for a loop, your race is done...but if you're still running on Sunday, the bell lap will be at high noon (28 laps = 162.4k with ~4500m of vert)!!

This format is a super fun way to log good mileage, with great people, on an awesome trail, without any major pressure to complete the loop on time. 





5. No dogs allowed on the course. If they're in the park, they must be on a leash and/or tied up.

***Space is limited, the park is super busy this weekend and the race is capped, so please don't show up thinking you can participate because you can't.

Group site camping is available for $5/person (separate/additional charge)…not just per runner, but per person. If your family/crew/friends, etc want to stay, they have to pay $5 online ($5 for 1 night or $5 for 2 nights. Either way, it's $5 total!). We’ll have space at the group site for up to 90 people. These spots should go to runners first, then crew, family, friends, etc. There are many private campsites in the park if your people would like to be away from us hooligans :) These cost roughly $30/night and can be reserved through the park itself.

You can make campsite reservations from April 2nd onwards here:

Please Note:

No refunds, No wait list, No transfers, No deferrals, and No furry friends on the course,
or off-leash please and thanks! :)

See you all at the group campsite/start/finish for pre-race check-in Saturday morning!
