Essential gear required to ensure MAX good times!

We want you all to have an incredible time with us in September, and often in the mountains - good times come to those who prepare. SO: we have compiled a little Golden Ultra gear list that is required for all participants... or else.

For clarification, gear such as a hobby unicorn and wireless mic for your #goldenultrakaraoke debut are NOT mandatory, but may win you a prize - so is there really a difference?


  • Water bottles / hydration device
  • Bear Spray (not required, but strongly recommended)
  • Cell phone (not required, strongly recommended) 

On the Sweat leg, we will require all 60K'ers to have:

  • Hat
  • Gloves
  • Jacket

IF there is extensive or problem bear activity in the days leading up to the event we may also require bear spray. Likewise, pending the weather forecast, we may also require an emergency blanket to be carried.

We will update you if our required gear list changes in the week leading up to our event! Happy September running!
