Ladies and Gentlemen! Welcome to Pocatello 50 2.0! This year we will be offering the following distances 100k (62.2 miles), 60k (37 miles) and 35 k (21 miles). It has been long known that our distances were a little long, but due to the construction of the Sterling Justice trail, a connector trail from Gibson Jack to City Creek, we needed to alter the course in order to stay in good standing with the Forest Service. The additional trail added a little more mileage to the 50 mile distance taking us to 56 miles, so we opted to bump up to the next standard ultra distance, 100k. This will allow us to include a couple more of the best trails in Pocatello and to be more accurate with our distances. There is a minor change occurring with the two shorter races, namely the elimination of the mile of pavement after the Big Fur Aid Station, this added a little distance but will certainly add to the race.
Given that with the distance changes we no longer have a “50″ distance we are working on renaming the event and should be announcing that in the next couple of weeks. Registration will still be done via Ultrasignup and will open at midnight January 1st. We are so excited to bring you the next edition of our Pocatello ultra races and hope to provide more information soon.
If you took pictures from the event and are willing to share, please send them to us at email@example.com or share them on the Pocatello 50 Facebook page.
See ya in 2014!
