There are significant changes for 2018. First, the 25K will have its own day, March 10. If you want to sign up for the 25K you will need to go to https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=50511 . If you plan on signing up for the 50K, 50 mile, or 100 mile, this is the place to go. If you want to sign up for both the 25K and one of the other distances, go to the 25K registration page and there will be an option to do that along with special pricing if you sign up for two races. Such a deal!.
Like I mentioned above, for 2018 the 25K will have its own special day, March 10. The other three distances will be on March 23-24. Hope that doesn't confuse too many people. Here's the reason. As many of you know the park asked me to cut the number of runners in half in 2017 due to the impacts on traffic, parking, the front gate, etc. This meant that I had to turn away a bunch of people. That made me really sad :-( So, I asked the park about scheduling the 25K on its own day since the 25k represents roughly half of the runners. The park said sure and that i can have 400 runners for it. I have had that many 25K runners in the past. I can also have 400 runners for the other three distances.
This will make me happy again, and hopefully make you runners happy.
So just to be clear:
100 mile - start March 23, 12:00pm
50 mile - start March 24, 6:00am
50k - start March 24, 8:00am
All runners have until 6:30pm, March 24 to finish.
There are a coutlet of intermediate cutoffs for the 100 mile, see the website for details.
All of the courses will remain the same. No changes at all.
The 50K will follow the same format as always, two trips around White Rock and Split Rock trails. All you 50K runners make sure you turn around at the White Rock aid station at the trailhead at the fence. Do Not go down the dirt road at all and don’t cut it short.
The 50 mile course will be the same as usual. Maps of the various courses are on the race website, www.buffalorunadventures.com.
