Starting in 2018, the “flexible” start times from previous years are no longer. Please see below for start times for the 24, 12, and 6 hour categories.  Also new for 2018 is the introduction of three different 3 hr waves.  Entrants in the 6 hr “night wave” will receive a free Black Diamond headlamp!



Results from the three categories will be sorted first by number of laps and secondarily by total elapsed time.  Only full laps (to the summit and back) will be counted.

Quasi-live timing will exist in 2018.  See the home page for the link, which will be live on the day of the race.

Cutoff Time

The only cutoff time is leaving Church Fork Aid Station for a final lap at 4:30AM Sunday.  This is applicable to the 24 event.

All runners need to notify the Aid Station captain upon finishing their final lap in the allotted time. If a runners chooses to stop early, they also need to let the aid station captain that they are done.  From this point they are on their own and may choose to hang around the aid station to cheer on other runners or take the next shuttle back to their car.


Home Base (Church Fork Picnic Area)

We will have a well-equipped, warm, and fun aid station in the Church Fork picnic area (group site). Food, water, music, encouragement, is what you’ll find here.  You are strongly encouraged to bring all necessary gear to support you throughout the event to this aid-station where it will be stored in a covered tent and accessed as you require it.  Food and drinks are intended to support race participants only.

Available Food:

Water & sports drink, PB&J, oranges, bananas, nuts, candy, chips, grilled cheese, soup, vegan soup, chicken broth, hot chocolate, tea, coffee, coke, sprite, breakfast burritos (Sun AM).

First Endurance is our 2017 energy drink sponsor.  Given the uniquely cold conditions of RUFA we will have diluted liquid-shot as our energy drink.  We will also have single-serve EFS packets available.  Read about fueling for winter conditions here:
