New for 2023
Hey folks, a couple of new things for 2023.
The big change for this year will be the relocation of the start/finish for both events to the Antelope Island State Park Marina. The park is building a new campground right where the current start/finish is so we can't use that. With the exception of the short out and back to the marina, the 50K course will remain the same. The Half Marathon will start at the marina and run south along the Mountain View Trail, turn around at the 6.55 mile mark and return to the marina. The 50K will start and finish at the marina and run the course in a clockwise direction..
The 50K is one loop and the start and finish will be at the marina.
The first aid station will be Lower Frary. 6.1 miles in. The next aid is at the Fielding Garr Ranch at 11.7 miles. This is the one drop bag location. Next is the North Sentry aid station at 15.5 miles and roughly a 1000’ climb to get there. After that, you will drop that 1000’ all the way down to the shoreline on the west side, following the trail until you get to the top of the switchbacks on the Split Rock Trail. You will go down the switchbacks, and go up a roughly two mile climb (600’ gain) until you get to the next aid station, Elephant Head (23.7 miles). Next up is a 5.5 mile stretch to the White Rock aid station (28.9 miles). A little bit of dirt road running along the fence gets you down to the Mountain View Trail and the home stretch. Because of the start at the marina, the course may run a bit long. I figure it’s about 31.7 miles and 3900’ of gain. If you want other info on the race, there's plenty on the race website.
The half marathon is a simple out and back along the Mountain View Trail. There will be aid at roughly four miles, then at the Lower Frary at about 6 miles. Returning you will have aid at Lower Frary at roughly seven miles, the again at roughly 9.1 miles.
If you would like a gpx of either course, send me a note.
Won’t that be fun!
Refunds, Rollovers, and Transfers
Here is the policy
I will refund your entry fee PROVIDED the race is full and there is someone on the wait list to take your spot.
This refund is available up to approximately 30 days prior to the race.
If the race is not full, then there is no refund. Within 30 days there is no refund available.
How do you get a refund? Just send me a note through the website contact page.
There are no rollovers for any Buffalo Run Adventures races.
The entry fee you pay is for this year’s race and covers this year’s supplies, fees, insurance, etc. Yes, I know other races allow rollovers, those races clearly have more money to burn than I do.
The best thing to do is to get a refund if the race fills.
Transfers are allowed provided the transfer is made through ultrasignup. I do not charge a fee for transferring. Informal or unofficial transfers are not allowed. It's a liability issue.
If you are out running the race and get hurt and can’t communicate with us, I have no idea who you are, who to contact, etc.
Plus it has the potential to really screw up results.
The best thing to do is to get your refund if the race is full and have your friend just sign up for the race.
Thanks for being understanding!
I don’t do them….period…..don’t ask….I think they’re stupid…..everyone pays the same price unless you register late, then you’ll pay more than your buddy because you procrastinated.
Stuff You Get
What do you get for running the race? Well, you get free entry on to the island. We'll toss in some sort of tech shirt with the really cool race logo on it. We'll have some random prizes to give away as well.
Also, each aid station will have a cornhole game board. Each runner will get a scorecard in their goody bag. You get four tosses at each aid station. Scores are verified by a volunteer and the top man and woman will get a free entry into a Buffalo Run Adventures race within a year.
We'll also have some buffalo chili for runners and family (family costs a little bit extra, like $7 each).
Everyone that finishes gets a nifty finisher coffee mug as a small token of your awesome accomplishment, way better than a race medal that gets tossed into your sock drawer.
The 50K overall man and woman will get a trophy of some sort and the top three men and women for both races will get a little bit of spending money.
You get your bib at check in this year. Packet pickup will be Friday morning starting at 6am. Packet pickup is at the large parking lot near the entrance station. There is no early packet pickup. DO NOT GO PAST THE ENTRANCE STATION WITHOUT YOUR BIB. If you carpool with your friends with the family planning coming out later, the family will have to pay the entrance fee. The park makes up these rules, not me.
