The San Juan Solstice 50 mile endurance run is a scenic but very rugged loop at high altitude in the San Juans. The run consists of five main sections: the climb up Alpine Gulch and down William's Creek, the climb up to the old mining town of Carson, a long section along the Continental Divide, a descent to Slumgullion Pass, and a final hump up and over the Vicker's Ranch plateau. The very demanding San Juan Solstice 50 is for experienced trail runners only. For more details, choose a topic in the navigation bar above to go to a specific section.

All proceeds benefit the Lake City EMTs, our all-volunteer emergency medical team, most of whom will be helping at aid stations on race day!

Cancellation Policy The race committee reserves the right to cancel or alter the race due to conditions outside of our control, such as weather, snowpack, high stream flow, fires, or other acts of nature. Runner's safety is our priority.

We will do our best to return a portion of the entry fee if the race is cancelled, but please remember that we incur a lot of costs and that this a non-profit event.

The San Juan Solstice 50 Mile Run operates under special use permits with USFS and the BLM.
