Registration: Registration is available on-line only through ultrasignup.com beginning November 23rd at 12am. Registration will close on July 1, though we expect the event to fill well before then. There are no refunds, transfers or postponements.
Packet Pickup: We don’t have traditional race packets.  If you ordered a t-shirt you may pick it up Friday at Rogue Valley Runners in Ashland between 3 and 6PM.  It is a great place to hang out with other runners and get pumped for Saturday’s event. We start signing in 50K runners at 6:15, providing race numbers and chips for timing.  If you didn’t pick up the shirt you ordered on Friday it must be picked up before your race.  There is a separate line for shirt and mug pick up.   We encourage you to drop by our friends at Rogue Valley Runners on Friday to pick up last minute racing needs and running advice from Oregon’s finest running store. Don’t worry, the traditional SWAG will be provided as you cross the finish line!
