NOTE: Runners must carpool, and its vital the noise level is very quiet on race morning as we will be parking on the town streets of the community, and residents will be asleep.
Race Day Check In, Packet Pick Up: OPTIONAL bib pick up on Friday April 21st from 4-7pm at the Green Valley Charitable Hall. This is also where the new start/finish location is.

Crew access: Crews are allowed for 50Mile runners, and 50k runners at San Francisquito Canyon Road.
Cut Offs: See cut off times below by aid station. No exceptions
Aid Stations: Sports drink, cola, sprite, fruit, cookies, candy, chips, boiled potatoes (at later aid stations), pretzels, sandwiches, and maybe something homemade by our fabulous volunteers. Aid stations will have basic first aid kits with band aids, vaseline, etc. Please bring your own aspirin, ibuprofen, etc. Please show your appreciation to our wonderful volunteers as you pass through the aid stations!
Finish Line Food: Turkey or veggie sandwiches, home made veggie chili, and tons of yummy snacks.
Weather: Plan for very cold in the morning(40’s), and possibly in the 60’s-70’s during mid day. Please put a dry long sleeve in your drop bag at mile 42 if you plan on finishing after 10 hours. It tends to get very chilly come late afternoon, and you might need it. Watch our weather widget.
PLEASE DO NOT LITTER ON THE COURSE! Trash bags will be available at each Aid Station to dispose of your trash. Please help keep the course litter free so we can continue to get our permit from the USFS.
