UPDATE 8/1/2020: We are still on. In the unlikely event we get cancelled, we will augment our "no refund" policy for this year. We will offer either 1) 100% rollover credit to next year's event, or 2) Conversion to the virtual race this year, and a 20% discount off of any race next year. (No discount for current virtual runners). That's double swag! Register with confidence!
USATF SANCTIONED EVENT
"Well Organized, great course. The timing was superior. I liked being able to see where I was every time I crossed the timing mat."
"The lap distance was perfect and the view was incredible" - 2019 Participants
100 mile or 6, 12, or 24 hour runs over a .84 mile loop on a working horse ranch, to benefit Ride To Walk. It is 99% dirt, with just a few feet of asphalt and concrete. Gaiters are recommended for dust and burrs.
100 Mile runners who have reached 80 miles at the end of the 24hr event (noon on Sunday) will be given an additional 8 hours to get to 100 miles. (32 hour cutoff). Any runner not hitting 80 miles by the end of the 24 hr, or not hitting 100 miles by the end of 32 hours will be moved down to the 24 hr, so there will be no DNF's. However, these runners will NOT be eligible for awards in the 24 hr event. 32 hours is a very generous cutoff for you to run your first 100, and the course is well-suited to do so!
Ride To Walk's mission is to enhance the lives of children and young adults with neurological disabilities by providing innovative therapeutic horseback riding activities that are recreational in nature and adapted to the individual's needs and abilities. Ride To Walk strives to provide a positive support system for individuals with disabilities, their parents/caregivers, and our community. A portion of the proceeds from all races will go directly to Ride To Walk.

Run as much as you want, as many times as you want, during the 24 or 32 hour period, collect some sweet swag, and support a great organization.

Ride To Walk, Lincoln CA
Point Waze to Ride to Walk: 1630 CA-193, Lincoln, CA 95648, (Or if using maps, it might be 1630 Lincoln Newcastle Hwy, Lincoln CA 95648) and take the backroads if it is "traffic time". No maps? Ride to Walk is just east of Lincoln on Hwy 193. Take Hwy 65 north from I-80, take the Lincoln Blvd exit, and turn right Ferrari Ranch, then right on McBean Parkway, which turns into 193. RtW is about a mile out of town on your right-hand side. There are signs at Ride to Walk.
Volunteers who work six hours will receive a $40 credit toward any race this year or next. Limited spots are available.
The world famous Mike Melton from MCM timing will take care of lap counting for us with redundant timing chips, mats, and live runner tracking and updates. Mike's yearly resume includes Across The Years and A Race For The Ages, among other huge events. Please return your transponder when you finish your race. There will be a $20 charge for lost transponders.
We will have one aid station at the start\finish line stocked with the usual ultra goodies: Water, Tailwind, Coke, Root Beer, Ginger Ale, Dr. Pepper, Coffee, fruit, sandwiches, and sweet and salty snacks. We will try to provide a "real" food option around dinner time, and breakfast time.
WE ARE A CUPLESS EVENT. Please bring your own cup, which you may leave at the aid station, or your personal aid station. We will be happy to fill your bottle for you. Just tell us what you want, and we will have it ready for you the next lap. Please write your name on your bottles or cups.
Each runner will receive a Thunder Ultras trucker hat, and finisher's medal. Runners completing 100 miles in any race will receive a custom 100 mile buckle. We may have some other surprises for you as well.
Medals for the top three male and female finishers in each race: Gold, Bronze, and Silver versions of the finisher's medals, in place of the regular finisher's medal. Like last year, we may have something special for the male and female winner of each race, as well.
