Distance – 62.2 Miles
Elevation gain – 13,000+
Time Limit – 17 Hours (16 Hours to Qualify for Western States 100M Lottery)
Bracelet Grabs – There will be two spots that will require you to grab a bracelet to prove to us that you completed the course. One will be at Bald Mtn. (a gorgeous 1M total out-n-back eyelet loop) and the technical out-n-back visit to Enrequita Aid Station. You can get rid of the bands at the next aid station (Bald Mtn. and Bull Run respectively) shall you not want to run with them.
We have used multiple sources for mileage and elevations. There are many inconsistencies from past runners results, training run data, and map experts. At this time, you will notice the same mileage as the maps. They may change, but only by a few tenths of a mile as you have probably experienced before in other events.
100k Cutoffs - You must leave the Aid Station by the cut-off time in order to continue. Any Runner who refuses to leave the course after missing a cut-off may be refused entry to the race in future years.
