Race entrants and waitlist are available on ultra signup!
The San Juan Solstice 50 maintains a 50/50 mix of first time runners and those who have completed or attempted the race before. This is a tough race, 12,856 feet of elevation gain and loss virtually all above 9,000 feet with icy creek crossings to start the day and extensive and some times steep snow fields. In addition to having completed a prior trail ultra run, entrants should have lots of high elevation mountain experience. The 2023 race saw a 30% DNF rate. Those runners are encouraged to come back and complete the course this year. Prior finishers and those who have unsuccessfully attempted it have extra weight in the lottery.
