_ The 2018 Nifty 50:
Pre-registration is available through August 9, the Thursday before the race. Cost is $25 for the 50K, $15 for the 25K, and $10 for the 10K. Race day registration is $35 for the 50K, $25 for the 25K, and $15 for the 10K. The 50K race starts at 8:30 a.m., the 25K starts at 9:00 a.m., and the 10K starts at 9:15 a.m. All three races start and finish at the end of Basin Road.
Each race is run mostly on stunningly beautiful trails with a significant amount of climbing (more than 5,000 feet elevation gain for the 50K). The 25K course is on Basin Road, Perseverance Trail, Red Mill Trail, the Glory Hole overlook, Granite Creek Trail, and Mt. Roberts Trail. The 50K is essentially the 25K course, and adds the Flume and Salmon Creek Trail. The 10K is on Basin Road, Perseverance Trail, Red Mill Trail, and the Glory Hole overlook.
Because we have volunteers out on the trails in sometimes marginal weather, we cannot accommodate an early start and must impose a time limit of 7.5 hours for the 50K. If you cannot finish the 50K in 7.5 hours, please sign up for the 25K. It is still a beautiful and challenging course.
