50K solo 8:00am in waves of 15-20 people
Relay staggered times starting at 8:45am (CANCELLED FOR 2021)
This is an ODD year so we are running the course DOWNHILL this year!
The course is 50-kilometers point to point (31.07 miles) from Council to Midvale, Idaho along the scenic Weiser River Trail. The trail is a railroad bed that has been converted to a National Recreation Trail. The trail surface consists of stony railroad ballast, dirt, and some paved crossings as you come into towns. The trail runs alongside the Weiser River, through canyons and across open farmland. There is very little elevation change on the course. The course is ideal for this early season event and excellent for runners of any ability – beginners to veterans. In addition to the solo 50K, we also have a 50K relay. So no excuses not to run it! The Relay is open to teams of runners from 2-5 people.
Packet pickup for both the 50K solo and relay will be as follows:
Friday, April 23rd- MERIDIAN store - 11a - 5pm
Saturday, April 24th RACE DAY at race start - 7 am
Must Register by 04/01/21 by NOON to be guaranteed Swag
We are unable to accomodate drop bags at the start this year per USATF Covid protocols.
Post race there will burritos! All runners and volunteers receive one with their bib or voucher. If you have friends or family wanting to eat too you can purchase additional meal vouchers at registration or a voucher for $10.00 at the Pulse tent on the day of the race.
There is no cap on our solo 50K entries. We have the following classes:
50K Ultra (must be at least 18 years old)
Male & Female Masters (55+)
Distance between Aid stations
Leg 1- Council to Mesa siding 6.1
Leg 2- Mesa Siding to Goodrich 6.9
Leg 3- Goodrich to Cambridge 9.1
Leg 4- Cambridge to Shoepeg 5.0
Leg 5- Shoepeg to Midvale 4.1
There are no cancellation refunds; however, a team may transfer people up until race day. Ultrarunners may roll their entry to the next year or transfer to a relay team.
NO RELAY FOR 2021
For us to obtain insurance and have a successful return to racing we cannot manage relay teams for 2021. The relay creates a situation at aid station/exchanges that is not inline with the COVID 19 restrictions that we must follow to ensure this event and other events we direct can continue into the future.
Substitutions / Changes for Relays
Team substitutions may be made up to race morning. All entrants must read and sign waiver / entry form.
These races aren't possible without Volunteers, If you can help out at an aid station please hop on over to Ultrasignup and get registered! Volunteers can sign up at Ultrasignup.com and click on the Volunteer tab.
Shuttle (currently working on shuttle arrangements... stay tuned)
Please check that you need a shuttle during sign up so I can plan the shuttle arrangements for 2021 we CANNOT pack the bus like we have in the past- I need exact numbers to plan transportation.
Please disregard below
We have secured a school bus to transport runners from the finish line (Midvale) to the start line (Council) on race morning. There is plenty of room for runners to park their cars at the finish line and get a ride on the bus to the start. The bus will leave Midvale at 6:00 am sharp. There will be no transportation provided by the race AFTER the race back to the start.
