Qualification for the 2024 Manitou’s Revenge 53 miler:
-Since this is an extremely tough race we have minimum qualification standards. In order to apply to run Manitou’s, you must have run another trail/mountain 50 miler or longer, with significant elevation gain (think at least 8,000 feet), within the time limits for that course and within the last two years. Since not all courses are equal, acceptance of your qualification is at the race director’s discretion. If you are unsure if you qualify, email us before you sign up. You will provide this information during the application process. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE IS A SHARP CUTOFF FOR ALL RUNNERS OF 3:30 PM AT THE PLATTE CLOVE AID STATION (about 30 miles).
We have had a couple of requests to accept runners without a prior trail/mountain 50 miler. WE WILL NOT BE MAKING ANY EXCEPTIONS to this policy this year.
If you are unsure if your prior races qualify or have other questions you can email Charlie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
REGISTRATION WILL BE ON ULTRASIGNUP FROM 2/1-22/24 (roughly). REGISTRATION FOR PREVIOUS FINISHERS OPENS ON 2/1, AND FOR ALL FIRST TIME APPLICANTS ON 2/14. PREFERENCE WILL BE GIVEN TO PREVIOUS FINISHERS. If you are a previous finisher, you MUST STILL sign up by 2/22. Everyone will be signing up to be on a “waitlist”. Once we have decided to accept you, we will send you an invitation to register. Once you receive the invitation, YOU MUST REGISTER AND PAY FOR THE RACE.

We are only allowed to have 125 runners total, because our race goes through designated wilderness areas. So after we reach 125 runners, we will start a real waitlist. In previous years, we did move through most of our real waitlist.

Refund Policy: Full refunds minus the Ultrasignup fee will only be available until 5/15. After that, refunds will only be issued under extreme circumstances at the discretion of the race director.
