THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
We are disappointed to announce the 2020 FlatRock 50k/25k will unfortunately be canceled. As with all our races, all registrants will have full transferal to the FlatRock series or other Outlaw races. Details on that process will be forthcoming once registration for next year’s race opens after this year’s planned date. Since the FlatRock 101k previously cancelled, this will allow for the series to be re-launched as the triple crown in 2021.
The Outlaw group has taken a practical view of races canceling Lake McMurtry and Flower Moon this spring but we were able to host Dark & Dirty mid July without incident. We were very hopeful for FlatRock but prevailing trends have introduced issues and much uncertainty. Therefore we will join other races in the region in cancellation. There will be no virtual option. We know that runners have become accustomed to race cancellation but the frustration remains and we feel it as well. We remain excited about the future of FlatRock and have exciting plans for coming years. Please continue to watch for announcements and we will answer questions to the best of our ability. Thank you for your continued support. Good luck with your training and we wish you the best of health.

Along with a T-shirt and the normal fun of volunteering, we would like to do more. It takes a community to put on quality races, but volunteers also need to be appreciated. The program will be as follows: Shifts are in 4-8 hour increments and you must sign up. If you volunteer for one shift at any of our races you will get 25% off registration for any of our future races. Distance is not a factor. So 4 shifts will be a free race.
If you are currently active duty Military or a Veteran, we'd like to give our thanks by extending a 10% discount for your entry fee. Please message us at Outlaw 100 for the coupon code.
Prior to the race, you may defer (for any reason) to any of our subsequent races. There will be no deferments after the race has occurred. It will be your responsibility to remind us of your deferment when registering. Contact us on messenger at Outlaw 100 to arrange deferments.
Transfers to a specified individual will be allowed but it is the responsibility of the registrant to name the recipient. The Outlaw race directors will not facilitate finding another runner or run contests (this is too time consuming).
In the event of cancellation due to the Covid 19 pandemic, deferrals to other Outlaw races will be offered at no additional cost to the runner. Cancellation will only be in the event of extreme circumstances (global pandemics, inclement weather; local, state, or national emergency) and is at the race directors discretion. If for any reason the event has to be shut down due to extreme weather, natural disaster, etc… you will be pulled from the course or held at an aid station until you can be removed from the course. Please, no arguing if this should happen. It is for your own safety. If the race has to be cancelled, no refunds will be issued.
Under no circumstance will refunds be issued.
