Awards, Drop bags, Time limit
Awards will be given to the top overall male and female, as well as the fastest male and female finishers in each 10-year age group. We also have special awards to be bestowed upon the first male and female rookie ultramarathoners.
We support drop bags at the Skyline Gate Aid Station, located about halfway through the race at mile 14.4. Bring your bag to the start on the morning of the race and we'll transport it to the aid station in time for your arrival. Bags will be returned to the finish after the aid station closes. Please be sure to clearly identify your name and number on your bag.
The time limit is 9 hours. Contact us for early start options if you think you may need more time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a pre-race packet pickup?
Yes! We will have packet pickup from 12-4 at Transports on College Avenue in Oakland.
Are there places where my friends and family can crew or watch?
Most of the aid stations are vehicle accessible. For driving directions go to the Aid Stations page under the Course tab.
Are there finisher awards or medals?
While we do offer a hearty congratulations, along with various race swag items, we strive to emphasize the experience over the medals, and thus devote more energy toward the things that will make the race one to remember, including an elaborate post-run bbq and beer extravaganza where you can connect with your fellow finishers. Awards will be given to the top overall male and female, as well as the fastest male and female finishers in each 10-year age group. We also have special awards to be bestowed upon the first male and female rookie ultramarathoners.
Is there a time limit?
Yes, there is an 9-hour time limit. Intermediate cutoffs are located at Skyline Gate (mi 14.4/11:20 am), and Bort Meadow return (mi 23.3/2 pm). There is a 'soft cutoff' at Big Bear (mi 20.2/ 1pm) to ensure runners are on pace. Please remember the cutoffs are in place so the volunteers can join the post-race festivities. If you feel that you may need additional time, please contact us about early start options.
Do you need volunteers?
Our races depend on the generous spirit of the running community to ensure every participant is well supported. Volunteers will receive a free entry to a future Scena Performance event. Please fill out the volunteer form to indicate your interest and we'll get back to you with more information.
