-The 50 Miler and Half Marathon take place on Saturday
-The 50k and 5 mile is on Sunday.
For runners who are crazy enough, we’ve added the Cloudland 50/50 Challenge! Run BOTH the 50 mile (on Saturday) AND the 50k on Sunday!
The goal of these races is not to be hard but to be scenic, fun and safe. The 50k consists of two unique loops and a small out and back. The half marathon is a lollipop route, and the 50 miler is the 50k course, but with a longer out and back. The 5 mile will be a beautiful route with roughly 600ft of gain - this is NOT a flat run! The 50k and 50 miler consist of mainly rolling hills with a few 500-700 ft climbs, and of course the plunge down to the bottom of the canyon and back! Expect 7500 ft gain on the 50 mile, 4500 ft gain on 50k and 2300 ft gain on the half. You will pass massive waterfalls, jaw dropping open views of valleys, and a sunrise as far as you can see into the horizon! The half marathon is tough with all the beauty and hardship of the 50k / 50 mile course in one. Its totally worth it and features a plunge down to the bottom of the canyon and back up. BRING YOUR CAMERAS!
Other Important Info:
All runners will get a hat or a beanie or a shirt, and a finishers pint glass. 50 Mile and 50k participants get a medal.
