Folsom Lake Ultra Trail (FLUT) is the only event to run all the way around Folsom Lake, to our knowledge, this may be the only race covering this length of distance while circumnavigating a body of water in California.
Local time: 8:23 AM
FLUT has a total of 12 aid stations that are packed with all kinds of food that ultra-runners need, water, electrolyte, boiled potatoes, chips, candy, gel packets, salt pills, and the later aid stations will have whole foods such as soup, quesadillas, etc.
This race changes directions every year. 2015 was a counterclockwise course, 2016 a clockwise course, and now we are back the original course, counterclockwise. The course is a mix of trails and some roads (85% Trail, 15% Road).
