We know that every 50 miler gives out medals that make their way into a medal bin. We want to change that trend and give all of our amazing runners something they can use and remember. Last year we gave out custom co-branded Goodr's and this year we've got another great surprise that won't be keeping your medals company. Stay tuned.
We pride ourselves in having the best media in the ultrarunning scene. Our videos are top-notch and we spare no expense in creating media for our runners and their families to enjoy. Our photos are taken by professionals and showcase the incredible runners we have on race day. We hope you're not camera shy!
This race was designed by ultra runners who felt Davis County needed a 50 miler and a 50K. Many things make this course badass: A great course, fantastic people, live footage of the race on YouTube, and runner tracking that wasn’t invented in 1943. We want DC Peaks to feel fresh, new, young, and alive. That's our goal when it comes to creating the best experience for our runners.
Jake and Mick are back to go in-depth about this year's course and the minor tweaks we made this year. We go over everything you will need to know about elevation, mileage, and terrain from aid station to aid station. We suggest you screenshot the tips so you can have them on your phone and you'll know what to expect leading up to the race! We tried our best to give you the info you want in a video that no other race has put out or can match.
2021 was a disaster for the DC Peaks 50 ultra marathon. This year we came back with a vengeance and had an incredible race for everyone involved. Enjoy the epicness that was DC Peaks 50 2022.
This video goes out to all the family, friends, and crew members that support us during the insanity that is an ultra marathon. Through all the long training days, the much needed rest days, and the longest day of all: race day. We couldn't do this without you.
As ultra runners ourselves, we're tired of how old-school the ultra marathon world can feel. Utah is in dire need of a fresh, young ultra marathon. Our goal here at DC Peaks is to reignite the industry and modernize the ultra marathon community.
We're all in on making our race the best race for YOU. We have top-tier media, livestreaming, and aid station accommodations. Gone are the days of watered down ramen and Gatorade mix.
We created DC Peaks 50 because the mountains in Davis County are our home. We knew there was going to be a 50 miler here someday and so we waited. And waited. And waited...until we decided to simply do it ourselves since nobody else will. We truly believe that we have some of the best views on this course in all of Utah.
Our runners flooded us with compliments after the first year in 2022. Many runners talked about how they stopped to take pictures of the views and trails they were running on because they were too beautiful not to. We want our runners to have something tangible and useful when they finish the race, instead of a cheap medal with a ribbon they stick in a bin that only sees the light of day when that bin gets opened for another medal to get thrown into it.
We know you'll enjoy our race as it is THE first-class 50 miler and 50K here in Utah.
