The best way to get a camping pass is to come see the Race Director at the pre-race dinner on Thursday night. He will have the camping passes. They're $10 for one or two nights. Please bring exact cash. If you can't make the pre-race dinner, please make other arrangements (reach out via email well in advance). If you're running the 55K, please come find the RD at the start/finish line in the park on Friday. He'll have them there.
The park where camping is available for the race is at Trailhead Park (at the start / finish). It is a city park and they only allow camping on the night(s) of the race (Thursday night and Friday night - there is no camping on Saturday night).
Camping is allowed in tents, RV's, campers, etc. There are no hook-ups.
Thursday night (the night before the 50 & 100-milers start) is pretty quiet - although we do start setting up in the park at 5:00 AM or so on Friday. The early starters start at 6:00.
Fair warning! On Friday night there's a lot of light, noise & activity in the park as it's also the finish area for the 50 & 100-milers. There are darker corners to go camp in, but I can't guarantee a good nights sleep. Bring ear buds!
The good news is, there is a restroom with flush toilets there! But, no showers. I mean, c'mon... it's $10.
The park only allows camping on the night(s) of the race and at no other time.
