Very Important. Read this!!!!
30K runners are allowed 7 hours, 50K runners are allowed 9 hours and 50M runners are allowed 14 hours to complete their races. Strict cut offs for 50M runners within the 14 hour overall finishing time. Please read below.
ALL 50M RUNNERS MUST COMPLETE THEIR FIRST 30.6 MILES WITHIN 9 HOURS in order to continue on their last 21 miles. THIS IS A HARD CUT OFF, so if you are not back to the start/finish line area by 3:30 pm you will have to end your 50M race at whatever time you arrive at the finish line after 3:30 pm and receive a 50K race time. If you make the 3:30 pm cut off, you may start your last 21 miles. You MUST finish the next 10 miles in 2 hours or you will not be allowed to start the last 10 miles. THIS IS A HARD CUT OFF. If you are not at the start/finish area by 5:30 pm for 41.6 miles, this will result in a DNF on your 50M race. So plan your race and decide if you narrowly make the first cut off, will you take a chance on the last two loops and perhaps get a DNF or will you call it a day and take a time for the 50K instead.
Sunrise is at 6:54 am and Sunset is at 6:31 pm on October 7. So you may want to start your race with a headlamp. If you are running the 50M race, you will want to grab it again at Mile 41.6 before heading back out to finish your last 10 miles.
AID STATION LOCATIONS

the 50m race course WILL SHARE THE FIRST 30.6 MILES WITH THE 50K RUNNERS. both races will run 30.6 miles together. 50m'ers will return to the start at the end of the 50k course (read details in 50k course description above). IF YOU HAVE NOT MADE THE cut-off of 9 hours by 3:30pm OR IF YOU'VE HAD ENOUGH, you'll receive a 50k race time. IF YOU'RE GOOD TO GO, this IS THE TIME TO REFUEL, REHYDRATE AND GET THAT MUCH NEEDED "ATTA BOY/GIRL~YOU SO GOT THIS" FROM YOUR friends anD family before WE SEND YOU BACK OUT TO start the last 20'ish miles of your course... THE next 10 MILES IS A TRAVERSE OF THE CHEESEBORO RIDGE TRAIL VIA cheeseboro canyon trail, CANYON VIEW TRAIL and modelo trail. YOU'LL HIT THE START/FINISH AREA ONE MORE TIME TO REFUEL/REHYDRATE BEFORE HEADING BACK OUT TO FINISH YOUR LAST 10 MILES. IF YOU ARRIVE BACK TO THE START/FINISH AREA AFTER 5:30 PM (11 HOURS FROM START), YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED BACK ON THE COURSE TO START THE LAST 10 MILES. THIS WILL RESULT IN A DNF, so be mindful of your time. Your final loop STARTS UP MODELO TRAIL TO PALO COMADO. A LOOP around PALO COMADO, DOUBLETREE, SMOKE TREE, and the "infamous" deadcow trail before heading BACK TO PALO COMADO. take palo comado to the modelo ridgeline for a rolling fast finish downhill!
