Latest News


    Today we received official word from the US Forest Service that the 2021 Noble Canyon 50k is canceled. We know this news comes as a big disappointment for many of us. Please know that we did everything we could and were fully prepared to move the event forward, but it is not going to be. 

    Race participants have the following options:

    Option 1.) If you do nothing then you will automatically be rolled over to the September 17, 2022 race! At some point it may be necessary for you to click a Roll-over button through ultrsignup but we will let you know the process later. You'll receive your swag at the 2022 race, yah! 

    Option 2) If you would like the refund please email us by October, 31, 2021. The refund amount is now $55 plus we can mail you your shirt and socks if you request it - please tell us if you'd like the swag mailed to you.
    If you have a Paypal account please let me know the phone number associated with the account, otherwise we will mail a check to the address used at registration.

    Until next year. See you on the trails.
