“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.
Support crew must have a pass to access the course on event day. Information on how to get this pass will be posted before the event. Crew without a pass may be denied access. This is enforced to reduce traffic and hazards on the event route.
… up for grabs!
Pacers will be permitted on the course 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 information on how to get a crew pass will be posted in the spring.
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
We will submit the course for UTMB assessment as soon as it’s approved.
