Changes due to COVID-19
Due to California State and the Bureau of Land Management's COVID-19 requirements & restrictions, this event will be VIRTUAL in 2020.
Runners will be able to submit proof of completion between November 6 and December 6, 2020.
Runner shirts, medals and any raffle prizes will be shipped to the runner's registration address after December 6th.
A note on registration costs during the pandemic: We have made every effort to keep costs down for this virtual event, but it is important to us that we are able to continue to donate to our chosen charities (see section below) despite the cost of shirts, medals and the cost of shipping. Runners residing in Ridgecrest may arrange contactless pickup of their runner goodies for a reduced entry fee, if desired. Please use the code LocalPickup at checkout.
All finishers will receive a ceramic finisher medal crafted by the race director.
Due to the nature of virtual events, we will not be awarding trophies to runners in 2020.
Shirts are a unisex or ladies cut long sleeve technical shirt embellished with a custom design by our local printer, Squareprint.
Your shirt is guaranteed as long as we have RECEIVED your paid entry by November 15, 2020. Shirts are not guaranteed for registrants after this point..
Please keep this deadline in mind, as additional shirts will NOT be ordered after the event.
