All participants and staff are required to complete an online health screen within 24 hours of the start of the event in order to participate or work
All racers are required to wear a mask at check-in and anytime less than 6' of social distancing cannot be avoided.

Participants will start in 5 waves of 10 racers each. You will be placed into corrals based on your wave at the start.

Racers are welcome to bring a drop bag that will go to a halfway point. ASC will provide an outer bag for yours to be placed inside of and labeled with your bib number.

Staff are unable to refill water bottles since we cannot touch the racer bottles. Disposable cups of water will be distributed by staff that can be poured into bottles by racers.

Mandatory Racer Check-In

Racer check-in will be on Friday July 31st from 4pm to 7pm in Aspen Mountain's Upper Gondola Plaza and on Saturday, August 1st in Snowmass Base Village from 1pm to 4pm. All racers must check in to pick-up a racer bib. Please wear a mask at all times and maintain 6' of social distancing

All racers will be required to check in the morning of the race prior to the start. This includes those that picked up their bib the previous day. Staff will do a roll call based on wave assignment.


Parking and Transportation 

Paid parking is available near the 50K start in Aspen on the streets or the Rio Grande Garage. The Snowmass Garage at the finish line has free parking available. Free parking is also available at the Brush Creek Lot. We have arranged for an early RFTA bus to leave the Brush Creek lot at 5am heading to Rubey Park in Aspen. The first normally scheduled bus leaves Brush Creek at 5:30am and arrives in Aspen's Rubey Park at 5:48am. If you are staying in Snowmass and plan to bus this will be your best option to get to the 50K start since the Snowmass busses to the Brush Creek lot do not start running until 6am. There is limited parking at the Tiehack parking lot (25K start). There is free bus service to the Tiehack parking lot via the Castle/Maroon bus by getting off at the Aspen Rec Center stop and between Aspen and Snowmass on RFTA. Busses run continuously between the start and finish. Please check the RFTA's website for the most up to date information.
