“Eat - Run - Sleep” - 113 km
Let’s call this the combination of the best and the best. Starting with the sweat runners on Saturday morning you’ll first take a leisurely jaunt through this year’s 55 km course. While it’s “only” 55 km there is a beastly 3600m of elevation gain. We predicted you’d feel unsatisfied after finishing that loop so we’ve tacked on last year’s sweat course as a victory lap. No big deal, really, just another 58 km and 2500m of elevation gain.
So you’ll cross the finish line smiling, laughing and probably quite delirious after 113 km of “running” and over 6000m of climbing. Wahooo, right?

Other Important Information
We will deliver drop bags for runners to all aid station locations on the 120 km course. Drop bags must be clearly labelled with the runner name, bib # and aid station to which it should be delivered. Bags must be dropped off to the registration area before 8:00 pm on Friday (Aid Stations 1 & 2) or before start on Saturday (all others). Aid Station volunteers will lay out the bags on the ground at the aid station and runners will have to find their own bags. We will also return bags (and any items left at aid stations) to the start/finish line at the end of the day.
Due to the location of the course in 2019 there is no required crew pass. Your crew may access all aid stations with personal vehicles and/or a bit of walking. We recommend that you visit the Schacher and Bush Party aid stations in the first 55 km as the others are more remote (you will not be able to drive to them) or the access crosses private property. For the 2nd 55 km you may access all the aid stations except the Eagle’s Eye aid station. There will be NO PUBLIC ACCESS to the top of the Gondola from 4 pm to 10 am. The only way to have your support crew on this section of the course is to have a pacer.
… up for grabs!
Qualifying race: 5 points
Pacers will be permitted on the 2nd half of course (from Spirit Square at 55 km onward) but must be registered as support crew. This is because of our emergency response plan and abilities to respond to and track "unknown" runners on course. The support crew pass guarantees your crew access to all aid stations and we encourage you use that opportunity for event-time support.
More info on pacers: http://www.goldenultra.com/news/2019/7/23/faq-about-support-crews
For 120 km runners who wish to have a pacer, please have them register here. Pacer registration is MANDATORY. Pacers will have access to food/hydration at aid stations.
A mandatory gear list will be posted on the news page up to a month prior to the event. Mandatory gear may include:
Hat and gloves
Water bottles or hydration devices
