Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I would like to know if it is possible to run in both the 50K and the 50K relay. 

A: Yes, you can certainly run both as a solo runner and as one leg of a relay team (presumably the first leg). You would just need to wear your solo timing chip for the entire race and also the relay team chip for that one relay leg. Then hand it off to the next relay runner at the relay exchange area in the Start/Finish.

 

Q: How does the two member relay team work??

A: On a two member relay team, one runner will run two legs, and the other just one (in any order they decide).

 

Q: Where is the relay exchange area?

A: There wil be a marked area (orange pylons, cross bars, and sign) adjacent to the Start/Finish. It is also identified on the Start/Finish Area-Parking Map link on the About>Start-Finish tab

 

Q: What is the trail surface?

A: It is almost all pavement, with just a few short sections of concrete sidewalk. For those who prefer a softer surface, there is grass along side some of the trail.

 

Q: Hello, I live in the area and was wondering if you are needing volunteers? If possible, I would like take this opportunity to give back to the running community.

A: Certainly! Thanks for offering. Volunteers are need starting 2 days before the event until after it has finished. So it is certainly possible to both volunteer and run in the event too. Simply go to the Volunteer tab in the website menu and click the link  You will be redirected to a volunteer scheduling website where you can choose what works best for you.  You will also receive a Pistol Ultra Run headband and an event volunteer blended sport tee shirt for your help. The headband and shirt are a token of our appreciation and are enclusively for volunteers only.

 

Q: I heard there is a Pistol squat contest on Friday during the 5-6 PM pre-race meeting. What is it?

A: Google "Pistol Squat" if you want to see what it is. There will be a demonstration to show correct form, and then a 2 minute Pistol Squat contest. Whoever the judge(s) declare the winners (both male and female) will receive their entry fee back in cash on the spot.

 

Q: Where do I register?

A: Click the Registration tab in the website menu and click on the Ultrasignup registration link.

 

Q: Why does the 50 miler start at 8 PM and not in the morning with the rest of the races?

A: For reasons why it's a nighttime race, go to Over View> Details and scroll down to Reasons Why the 50 Miler Begins at 8 PM.

 

Q: How do I register for both the 50K and the 50 miler so I can get that double barrel pistol award?

A: Click the Registration tab in the website menu and click on the Ultrasignup registration link. Simply register first for one distance, then step through and register for the second. We'll take care of the rest. (You may want to bring your big boy/girl pants! )
