2016 Overlook Race photos taken by race photographer and friend Joe McCladdie are on-line at 2016 at:  2016 Overlook Photos.  Thank you, Joe for capturing the day.


Due to the oncoming storm & the projected rainfall, the Auburn State Recreation State Parks have decided that crossing the American River on Saturday could put runners and volunteers safety, at risk. Putting safety first, the Superintendent of the Auburn Recreation State Parks will not allow runners to cross the American River on Saturday. Working closely with the State Parks I have come up with alternative courses for 30 km and 50 km. The course will not have the river crossing, that we had all looked forward to, but will keep runners on as much of the Western States Trail as possible. Please, ALL races will start at the Overlook Park. Start times remain the same, 50 km 8 am, 30 km and 15 km 10 am. The 15 km course will remain the same. I will post course descriptions for 50 km and 30 km, shortly. Maps of courses will be provided at runner check-in on Friday and Saturday.


Very excited to announce NEW for 2016 we are a cupless race. All entrants will receive a UltrSpire C2 Cup for your aid station hydration needs. Thank you Auburn Running Co. for making this happen.
