2021 Lottery Info & 2020 Transfers!
We are taking new entries for the 2021 race. Although a lot of the spots will be taken by 2020 transfers there are a number of open spots we will fill with the lottery. We can't be sure how many spots are available until the lottery closes on Sept 11 as 2020 runners have the choice of registering for 2021 OR 2022. We will announce the 2021 entrants on Sept 30, 2020 Transfers will have their transfer credit automatically show up in their shopping cart. If it doesn't, please email Kristal at Kristal@destinationtrailrun.com BEFORE you register. All of the runners who chose a transfer option due to COVID19 this year should have received an email explaining the lottery process as of 8/24.
Lottery applicants will be charged entry fee (or difference in transfer amount if a transfer) on September 30th automatically if they are chosen for the 2021 race. Transfers from 2020 and those who donated their entry/chose the virtual option will be chosen first, then we will fill the remaining spots with Triple Crown runners and new runners. The waitlist will be created from those who do not make it in through the lottery draw on Sept 30. Registration closes on Sept 11 so please register by that date in order to get a chance to run!
ALL applicants should read the Runner's Manual in FULL before registering. Please do not register if you do not agree with our policies or rules. Manual here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/144kJI9kfIPp8XP3P7pauTWXKv7DqhquM0SVxEKn8558/edit
Dates for the event
Friday, August 13, 2021 to Tuesday, August 17 at 6 p.m. 105 (4 day 9hr) cut off.
Join us on a 200 mile point to point exploration of the Cascade Mountains of Washington
The Bigfoot 200 is the first ever point to point 200+ mile race in the United States. The Bigfoot 200 is completely original from start to finish. Runners will explore such varied terrain as the otherworldly Volcanic Mount St. Helens (erupted in 1980), long mountaintop ridge lines with stunning forest, mountain and lake views, deep old growth forests as green and thick as a rainforest, misty mountain tops, cross countless streams and rivers and finally a long ridge line with views of the most massive mountains in the Cascade Range and into Randle, WA on their way to completing this massive, life changing event. They might even see a Bigfoot or two… it’s been known to happen in these areas.
Runners will be well supported on their journey with 14 full aid stations. Participants will have 6 sleep stations along the journey and a light breakfast aid station at the start location at Marble Mountain Sno-Park. This is not a stage race. Runners will be timed from the start to the moment they cross the finish line. Time taken for sleeping counts toward a participant’s overall time.
Details on the start
Runners will take a bus from the finish in Randle, WA (White Pass High School) to the start. Ride is 2.25hr to 2.5 hr drive to the start of the race at Marble Mountain Sno-Park. Runners may have crew drive them there as an alternative to taking the bus the race provides. Runners will be allowed to leave a bag of clothes/gear at the start to be transported to the finish. Race will provide a light breakfast at the start from 8am-9am.
Local time: 5:56 AM
