ABOUT THE RACE
Race is capped at 150 participants.
VIRTUAL PLATFORM FOR 2020
Racers will have two weeks (August 17-31, 2020) to complete the distance registered for; we understand there are so many unknowns and want to allow sufficient time for social distancing, etc.
Registered distance must be completed in 1 (one) run event.
Requests to change/update registered distance can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and must be received before the virtual event starts on August 17, 2020.
Your race kit, including your Arcteryx shirt, race bib, finisher medal & other goodies will be mailed to you by August 10, 2020. If your mailing address (on your Ultra Signup profile) is in Calgary, Alberta, your race kit will be available at Gord’s Running Store (919 Centre St N) from August 4-17, 2020 (*if things should change and Gord’s is no longer able to support pick up of race kits, you will be notified and all race kits will be mailed).
Lewiston Ultra Events will be creating a PACER bib that you will be able to print. You will get your RACER bib in your race kit. If you have a run buddy joining you for the virtual event & want to give them a gorgeous PACER bib, they will be entered to win raffle prizing. PACERS will need to be part of The Lewiston Ultra Strava community to be entered to win raffle prizing. Racers will receive the link to print the PACER bib closer to the virtual event date.
You will have until September 1, 2020 at 8AM MST to upload your results to Ultra Signup. It is super easy and I will send out a ‘how to’ by August 10, 2020.
If you ordered a custom Folk & Wild hat in the presale, your hat will be included in your race kit. If you would like to order a custom Folk & Wild hat to be included in your race kit, please email me at email@example.com before June 1, 2020. All orders must be received by June 1, 2020.
Registration for the 2020 Lewiston Ultra Moose Mountain will remain closed; we will not be opening the virtual platform to additional runners.
The Lewiston Ultra is inspired by Lewiston James Olstad and community. Lewiston reminded us all to squeeze a little harder, love a little longer and savor the moments we tend to wish away. Lewiston was small and mighty and encouraged community to rise up, persevere and run towards your roar. To learn more about Lewiston Olstad's journey, visit www.loveforlewiston.ca
