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.

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. 2018 will be a clockwise direction. The course is a mix of trails and some roads (82% Trail, 18% Road).

Relay team:

Come test your limits as a team! – You and 2 other of your friends can run all the way around Folsom Lake (2 person teams: 1 runner must cover at least 2 legs of the race). No runner or team can skip a leg, you will be considered as a DNF.

When a runner registers as a relay team, the runner will receive an email for the other team members to finish their registration.
