We are excited to move forward with the Weiser River 50k Ultra this year! Some of you rolled your registrations from last year, you will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to sign up for this years event! With Covid still amongst our community we will not be holding the relay this year. In order to move forward with our event there will be some covid guidelines that must be followed and we will update those as we get closer to the race.
The course is 50-kilometers point to point (31.07 miles) from Council to Midvale, Idaho along the scenic Weiser River Trail. The trail is a railroad bed that has been converted to a National Recreation Trail. The trail surface consists of stony railroad ballast, dirt, and some paved crossings as you come into towns. The trail runs alongside the Weiser River, through canyons and across open farmland. There is very little elevation change on the course. The course is ideal for this early season event and excellent for runners of any ability – beginners to veterans. .
We will have the following classes:
Ultra (minimum age 18)
-Seniors (any gender age 55 and over
There are no cancellation refunds. Ultrarunners may roll their entry to the next year.
Leg 1- Council to Mesa siding 6.1
Leg 2- Mesa Siding to Goodrich 6.9
Leg 3- Goodrich to Cambridge 9.1
Leg 4- Cambridge to Shoepeg 5.0
Leg 5- Shoepeg to Midvale 4.1
Please let me know if you will be needing a shuttle. Masks will be required on the bus ride! I need a good solid head count this year, as I cannot pack the busses with 50+ people!
There will be a shuttle leaving from Midvale @ 6:00 am to Council on Saturday morning for those needing it. This is for SOLO runners only- There will be no shuttle from the finish back to the start following the event.
