The epic Castle Peak 100k trail race opens for registration January 1, 2017. Click here to register now at UltraSignup. This destination race takes place 15 miles north of Lake Tahoe in Truckee, California. Dramatic scenery, big mountain climbs, and the notorious 1.25-mile rock scramble through the Palisades await the unafraid.
The 2017 Castle Peak 100k is presented by our generous supporters at Salomon. The race is produced by an all-volunteer team of Donner Party Mountain Runners. Racers can expect genuine support at aid stations every 4-7 miles along the course.
New registration requirements
In light of the high DNF rate on this very challenging course, we have increased the qualification standards, now requiring all registrants to complete a trail race of at least 50 miles and 7,000′ of climbing. The qualifying race must be run after January 1, 2016 and prior to registration for the 2017 Castle Peak 100k.
FREE three-day course preview / training runs
All registered runners are invited to join us Friday, July 21 – Sunday, July 23, 2017, for three consecutive course preview days. The entire course will be run over these three days – runners may join us for all or part of the weekend. Stay tuned for more information / RSVP will be required as the date draws near.
