Information:

Folsom Lake Ultra Trail (FLUT) is the only event to run all the way around Folsom Lake, to our knowledge, this may be the only race covering this length of distance while circumnavigating a body of water in California.

FLUT has a total of 12 aid stations that are packed with all kinds of food that ultra-runners need, water, electrolyte, boiled potatoes, chips, candy, gel packets, salt pills, and the later aid stations will have wholefoods such as soup, quesadillas, etc.

This race changes directions every year, 2015 was a counterclockwise course,  2016 will be clockwise course, and now we are back the original course, counterclockwise course. The  course is a mix of trails and roads (85% Trail, 15% Road).

Relay team:

 

When a runner register as a relay team captain, this runner will receive an email for the other team members to finish their registration. Each runner pays only 1/3 of the registration cost unlike other years when the captain assumed the whole entry fee.

2nd leg – From Gate 142 AS to Salmon Falls AS (24.5 miles**)

3rd leg – From Salmon Falls AS to Beals Point  (21.3 miles**)

**All distances are approximate. This course was mapped using a Garmin 920, Garmin 220, and Suunto Ambit 3, we got a different distance every time**

Each member of a relay finishers team will receive a long sleeve finisher’s T (Relay).

What’s Included

Amazing Post Race Feast

This course is not only known for the killer hills, one single giant loop, amazing aid stations, and very likely high heat. But, is also known for the amazing post race party feel with plenty of pizza and local craft beer.

Custom Bibs

All runners will receive a custom bib with the elevation profile. This profile will allow you to see what’s ahead on the course during the race. The elevation profile is placed upside down so you can easily read it while the bib is pinned to your shorts or t-shirt.

Major Swag

All of STR events are filled with goodies, while we know the killer hills and post race party will make you want to sign up again, we celebrate your finish with major swag. All of Folsom Lake Ultra Trail 100K finishers will receive a jacket, and each relay finisher will receive a long sleeve tee along with all of the extra swag.

Cupless Event

Each runner is responsible for bringing their own reusable cup or water bottle. Reusable cups are small, are no problem to carry along while running and will save thousands of cups from being trashed, and possibly blown away littering our beautiful trails. We will have some small collapsible water containers for sale at the event, or we recommend you purchase one in advance at your local running store or online at HydraPouch.
