There will be very loose cutoffs in the 10K and 1/2 Marathon. Our goal is to get more and more people into this awesome sport that is trail running, no matter what your experience level is. However, we would suggest that if you are not able to maintain 17:30 minute miles for 50K, that you please consider doing the 10K or 1/2 Marathon. The 50K hard cutoff time is 9 hours. The 50 Mile hard cutoff is 14 hours which works out to be 16:40 mi/pace.
There are no refunds, deferrals, credits or friend / family transfers on entries. We do not mail shirts or medals to participants unable to make the event as left over shirts are donated.
