Registration for this year's (2013) Chuckanut 50k will not be first come first serve as it has been for many years. Last year we increased the race field to celebrate the 20th running of the Chuckanut 50k and filled 500 spots in 1 hour & 15 minutes making it difficult for people with slower internet connections to get in to the race. This year registration will open at 8am on Friday January 4th and close at 8pm on Sunday January 6th.
This year's race field will be a random lottery chosen by the UltraSignUp computer system with a few spots reserved for past winners, long time volunteers, etc to be assigned by the race director. Race entrants will be announced Monday January 7th. We will host a wait list as well and will notify people if/as spots become available.
Please note this is the first time we have done the lottery drawing for Chuckanut and will do our best to make it a well run system. Suggestions are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
