SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - April 15, 2020
At this time, Rocky Peak is still on the calendar for October 17, 2020. The race will only be cancelled for one of two reasons:
1) The race is unable to secure the permit due to park restrictions related to covid-19
2) The number of runners does not financially support the race.
SIGN UP NOW & PAY LATER
In the event we cannot move forward with October, entries will be rolled over to October 2021.

"Thanks Nancy - this was only my 2nd trail race (1st was Bulldog) and I really loved it. I picked Rocky Peak because I liked Bulldog so much. I'm already looking forward to my next race.
Thanks for sparking my love for trail running.

WEATHER ON RACE DAY
The weather in October can reach the 70s or even 80s and may be windy. One important aspect of training for this race is to be properly heat acclimated. Do your homework and Google "heat training for summer ultra marathons".
On race day, the course is marked with surveyor ribbons and arrows on the ground. There is always a possibility that hikers may tamper with course markings and this cannot be controlled. Always keep your eyes alert to your whereabouts. It is unlikely that you will get lost during the race. If you notice you are not seeing arrows or ribbons, simply back-track to the last mark you saw and you will be back on track.
Sweepers will leave Tapo Station at the cut-off time and will stay behind the last participant. Sweepers will pull ribbons and yes, they will actually carry brooms to sweep arrows. Because course marking may be removed behind you, it is important that runners always move forward on the race course, to avoid getting lost. Note to slower runners: Staying with the sweepers does not guarantee that you will make the cut-off times. The sweepers will stay with the last runner regardless of the pace set by the participant so if you want to make the cut-off times, you need to set the pace.
