The Wilderness Ultra
We want to be very clear: the course is not marked. We will provide a GPX-file. For research read the stories of the participants from The Crusher Ultra Run 2019.
All event participants are required to know the self-supported ethos, take photos at checkpoints and to abide by the rules. GPS is mandatory. The course is not marked. Required gear lists are provided, may be updated prior to the race, and are considered mandatory. Failure to pass gear check will result in DQ. All items (yes, even the snorkel) are required.
You will be provided a booklet in lieu of a number plate. Traditional race plates are dead to us. Think of your passport as your number plate. DO NOT LOSE IT. You’ll need it at checkpoints and at the finish line. The passport will contain helpful information such as: required gear checklist, the rules, course information, bail point information, and more.

Many racers will arrive in the U.P. with family and friends planning to serve as a support team. We encourage this activity, but please be advised we are working on and will issue some guidelines intended to manage where and when support can be provided. The most likely answer will be in one of the predetermined checkpoints. Stay tuned for more information on the topic.
