If you sign up for the 50k, and decide while u are running that you want to do the 100k, feel free, but you will not be eligible for the $$$, overall prizes, or finishers award in the 100k race.
If you sign up for the 100k and decide to drop out at 50k, you will have a 50k time, but will not be eligible for the overall prizes.
Basically, sign up for the race you plan on finishing, and you will have no problems, except for the bugs, snakes, ticks, heat, etc.
