Shirts & Awards
MUST ORDER BY NOVEMBER 1st to be guaranteed a shirt. We are ordering extra and with no shows you will have a good chance to receive one. Those listed on the spreadsheet after 11/1/17 at the check-in will have to wait until after the races have started to receive one.Please come see us after you have completed your event to check our inventory.
We will order extra shirts based upon previous race data and relative entries. All race day registrants will most likely not receive a shirt. However, if you stay around until the end and we have extra then you may receive a shirt.
Shirt Material Choice:
Over the years we have found 100% of entrants will never be happy with shirt style, material, sizing, or even the art. For our events, we can only solve the the issue with those requesting the type of material in shirts. During registration you will be asked what type of shirt you would like and then you size. To help you with your decision making process, we can tell you the "Tech-Material" (not cotton) shirts are made by Sport-Tek and generally run true to size. If you select "Cotton Blend", we can tell you they are a high quality shirt made by "Next Level" and tend to be more fitted than loose like other all cotton shirts.
All finishers will receive a finishers medal similar to the ones in the above photo. These are called woodalions and made of recycled wood. These are made by the same company that makes the finishers medals for the Boston Marathon.
50K Finishers, as longtime PCTR ultra marathon tradition, will receive a commemorative coaster for finishing within the 8-hour time limit. We have other 50K events with 9-hour time limits, but due to the constraints on the permit we have to go with 8 hours.

It is of importance that our participants hangout and enjoy post race relaxation and enjoyment. We will host a specially prepared post race BBQ with a variety of protein, even vegetarian options. Last time we featured a "Sliders & Soup Bar". We have also had fajitas and taco bars. We will announce the menu as we get closer to the event. Community is an important reason we do this.
