If you do not you will be removed from the event with no refund. This is PER OUR USFS PERMITS! NO EXCEPTIONS!

To run the 10k
This may not be your first trail race

These races are extremely remote and help could be 10 hours away. You must be self sufficient between aid stations. For the 50k You must run with a lifestraw or similar filter for the entire race. YOU WILL USE IT or you will run out of water. This is deep end of the pool shit

2020 QUEST FOR THE CREST 50k/10k

Saturday />Entry includes pre race shuttle, hat, finishers prize, post race food and a high five!

Price includes pre race shuttle/post race shuttle, finishers pint glass.
We are here for you to have fun and finish this beautiful and rugged 50k/10k.
If this is not the MOST BEAUTIFUL RACE YOU HAVE DONE THEN YOU NEVER PICKED YOUR HEAD UP. This 10k is no joke. If you struggle with being on all fours going up a mountain or it takes longer than an hour to do a 10k on the road then this race is probably not for you. Of all our races this is by far the hardest. If you can't do technical downhill or pull your own weight up fixed tops multiple times then please DO NOT COME! This is not a SAFE race for you and help could be up to 10 hours away!!!

No refunds transfers or deferments
