Crested Butte Ultra
October 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
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 wild flowers and the changing of aspen leaves. All races start and end at the Crested Butte Community School. There are aid stations along each course but they are cupless; runners will need to carry reusable cups. These stations are supplied with hydration options and variety of sweet and salty foods to keep all participants fueled. Registration includes goody bag with timing chip, runners bib, branded race shirt, custom BOCO hat and a finisher’s buckle. Packet pick-up available the day before event and morning of race.
All courses wind through Farris Creek, Walrod, and Teocalli but have significant differences in their elevation gain. The Ultra 50 Mile course has elevation gain of 8301 feet with nine aid stations along the way. The Ultra 55K race has elevation gain of 4567 feet with six aid stations. The Ultra 35K has elevation gain of 2280 feet with four aid stations.
