Ruck a Chuck 50K is based on the course of the old Rucky Chucky 50k; the out and back course runs completely on the Western States Trail starting at the top of Rucky Chucky area, where runners that participate in the famous Western States 100 mile endurance run get to cross the river towards Auburn, the final town of their 100 mile journey.
Local time: 4:34 AM
During the Ruck a Chuck 50k runners will run towards Foresthill (opposite of WS100) on the Western States trail all the way to Cal 1 Aid Station. Runners will run one mile past the aid station to then turn back towards the finish line.
This is a great way to experience another part of the WS100 course and to properly train for Canyons 100k, a WS100 qualifying event.
Unfortunately this year we will not be able to provide a relay option due to permitting issues
