Skyline 50k is VIRTUAL

After much thought, we have decided to run Skyline 50k 2020 as a virtual run, with a twist. On September 26, we will offer very light support (hydration only) at key spots on the course. There will also be very light marking on the course (ribbons only) that entire weekend.

Otherwise, this is a virtual run, which means you run the course in the East Bay Regional Parks. As old as Skyline is, there are many versions of the course over the years. So you can run the current course (maps, turn-by-turns, are on our website under the COURSE tab at the top) or you can run any 50k or half-marathon distance in the parks where Skyline runs and we will give you an official time. This means you can start and finish at any point on the course as well. Maybe you're Charles Savage and you want to run the very original, point-to-point course from Wildcat Canyon to Lake Chabot. Great! Or maybe you're Julie Nye and you want to run the old 'new' course that goes through Honker Bay. You go, Julie!

Either way, the course that is documented on our website is the one we will support. If you're designing your own course, or want to start a different sport, here's a helpful page with the Aid Stations that includes driving directions.

To receive that official time, you must provide some kind of proof in Ultrasignup. This can be a picture of your watch or a Strava link or anything.

Schwag and Awards

All runners will receive a race shirt, which you can pick up at times we will post at the Golden Squirrel in Oakland. If you want us to mail your shirt to you, we're happy to. It's just a little more expensive to cover the cost of postage and packaging.

Because of the nature of this virtual race, there will be no special finisher or age group awards.

USATF Grand Prix and UTMB

While Skyline 50k is a Grand Prix and UTMB race, the virtual race will not be a part of those series.
