Race Information

The 50/50 has a rich history as one of the oldest trail runs on the West Coast. Our race was literally founded in the backyard of one its co-founders, Roland Martin, as a way to bring the ultra communities of northern Nevada and northern California together for a day of adventure on Peavine Mountain and the nearby Carson Range followed by food, drink and ample storytelling of the day’s events. It offers a wide variety of terrain for all types of runners, with plenty of climbing and descending. The course has enough dirt, rock, pine trees, excellent single track, altitude and exquisite views of the Sierra Nevada and the Truckee Meadows to satisfy the demands of runners who yearn for a fun, challenging day. This race starts and finishes from the Great Basin Adventure area in the Nevada Family Farms Area, next to the Arboretum, in Rancho San Rafael Park.
