PACKET pick up

Bibs will be handed out race morning only from 4-5:25 for 100/50K and 5:45-6:55 for 25K. We will not give out a bib to someone that isn't present, no exceptions, if you ask we will require ID. We need to track all runners and it is impossible to do so if we give out bibs the day before or to someone other than the runner. There will be plenty of volunteers to hand out bibs and a special line for those who wish to change distance.


finish line party

Be sure to stick around for the one-of-a-kind Canyons Endurance Runs finish-line party! Runners, friends, family and volunteers will be treated to tri-tip burritos, rice, beans and cold drinks. All are invited to stay and cheer on their fellow runners. 


The famous Canyons trucker hat makes a return for all distances along with a Canyons shirt and bandanna.

50K finishers will receive a Canyons stainless steel pint glass.

100K finishers will also receive a leather belt branded with the Canyons 100K and a Boco backpack co-branded with Hoka One One. Womens 100K finishers get an option for a sterling silver necklace hand-crafted by Krista Tranquila. 

Age-group awards will be awarded to 1st male and female for: 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s+!

National Forest

The Canyons section from Foresthill to Swinging bridge is located on National Forest lands. With approval from US Forest Service, we have temporary special use permits that allow us to run this famous section of the Western States Trail. Please respect all rules and regulations that apply and PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT, NO LITTERING!

We have a NO REFUND, DEFERRAL OR TRANSFER POLICY. It is very expensive and time consuming to organize and produce a trail running event. Most costs (swag, insurance, application and permit fees, emergency services, preparation time, etc.) have been incurred well in advance. Even a small percentage of runners requesting refunds, deferrals or transfers would be prohibitive. 

drug policy

The Canyons Endurance Runs is committed to protecting the sport of ultra running as a fair and honest endeavor that challenges individuals in a drug-free environment that keeps the playing field level for all. Though we have strong personal feelings about potential life time bans for previous offenders, we realize that until we have a true governing body for our sport, we currently accept WADA regulations with regards to potential entrants to our events. The Canyons reserves the right to disallow or disqualify any runner based off of proven use of any banned substance or proven blood doping.

No Poles

There are no trekking poles allowed at any distance!
