Registration closed on January 31st.  As registered runners drop, waitlisted runners who are at the top of the list will be issued an invitation which the can accept or decline.  The waitlist stands at 122 in mid February.  SJS50 has had wait lists over 150 and the race has yet to start a full course.  Typically, the number of registered runner drops does not increase until closer to race day and many waitlisted folks need to have something solid planned for that weekend and so they drop from waitlist.

San Juan Solstice Benefits

Lake City’s EMS Team will remain the primary focus of funding.  The race will fund, first and foremost each year, a stipend reimbursement program for EMS team members.  The Race Committee has also decided to fund a scholarship program for graduating local high school students.  


After funding the stipend program and the scholarship, any remaining race profits will be made available to other non-profit and public service entities in Hinsdale County through a competitive grant process. The Race Committee remains committed to supporting the EMS Team but recognizes that there are other non-profits and public service entities in Lake City with valid needs.  


The Race Committee is excited to take SJS50 to this next level of community benefit while continuing to support the EMS Team.
