Crested Butte Ultra

September 30, 2023 @ 8:00 am


Crested Butte Ultra is an event that has three events covering miles of the best trails in the country. Registration for the 50 Mile, 50K, and 35K is available. These courses are extremely challenging in the high altitude and traverse through Gunnison National Forest, where the stunning, open views will make the race training worth every minute. The area is gorgeous in the fall, covered in wildflowers and aspen leaves changing. All races start and end at the Crested Butte Community School. There are aid stations along each course, but they are cupless; runners must carry reusable cups. These stations are supplied with hydration options and various sweet and salty foods to keep all participants fueled. Registration includes a goody bag with timing chip, runners bib, branded race shirt, custom BOCO hat, and a finisher’s buckle. Packet pick-up is available the day before the event and the morning of the race.

All courses wind through Farris Creek, Walrod, and Teocalli but significantly differ in elevation gain. The Ultra, 50 Mile course has an elevation gain of 8301 feet with nine aid stations. The Ultra 55K race has an elevation gain of 4567 feet with six aid stations. The Ultra 35K has an elevation gain of 2280 feet with four aid stations.

Crested Butte has a quaint downtown close to the Community School with diverse restaurants. Visit Soupcon, Secret Stash, or The Slogar is known for its skillet-fried chicken.
