SPEEDGOAT 50k & 28k

July 20

Speedgoat 50k and 28k Mountain Races:  ENTER HERE

The Speedgoat 28k will now be referred to the running world, as the “speedgoat short course”.  The route is currently the same climb to the first aid station on Hidden Peak and once leaving Hidden Peak, the route will follow the 50k route, then branch off and go thru the tunnel, with the remainder of the course back on the 50k route AFTER the tunnel aid station.    At any aid stations, you will enjoy the same wonderful fare as the 50k.  The plan is for the race to start around 730am.  We are currently working on a strategic time for logistical purposes.  I will assure everyone, it’ll be “easy”.  Ha…

SPEEDGOAT 50K:

The race will start at 630am on July 20th  at Creekside Entry, (Snowbird Entry 1)  A course map can be found HERE.  Follow the link instead of me describing every turn.

Registration instructions for the 28k and 50k are on Ultrasignup found HERE.

Day of registration is NOT available for any of the 2 races.  If you show up and ask, I will say NO, regardless of who you are.

Speedgoat 28k Check in will be at Creekside between 630am-715am.  (assuming we start at 730am) on July 20, 2018.  There will be NO race day registration.  Race registration will close Sunday July 14.

Speedgoat 50k Check in will be at Creekside between 5am-615am on Saturday, July 21, 2018.  There will be NO race day registration. Race registration closes Sunday July 14th.

Snowbird offers reduced rates for all Speedgoat runners.  To book a room, call  1-800-453-3000, which is Snowbird Central Reservations and mention you are running the Speedgoat races for the discount.  Rooms sell out quickly, so make sure you at least reserve one early.  You can always cancel later.  This has not been finalized as of Dec 15, but will be soon.

Keep in mind there is NOT a camping option at Snowbird.  Because of the Watershed Protection, camping or sleeping in you’re RV or car is not permitted, and Snowbird Public Safety will kick you out.  I suggest camping at either the Tanners Flat Campground, 2 miles down the hill from Snowbird, or Albion Basin Campground 4.5 miles up the road at Alta.
