2017 Race | June 3th
Ladies and Gentlemen! Welcome to Pocatello 50 2.0- The Scout Mountain Ultra Trail! This year we will be offering the following distances 100k (62.2 miles), 60k (37 miles) and 35 k (21 miles). It has been long known that our distances were a little long, but due to the construction of the Sterling Justice trail, a connector trail from Gibson Jack to City Creek, we needed to alter the course in order to stay in good standing with the Forest Service.
The additional trail added a little more mileage to the 50 mile distance taking us to 56 miles, so we opted to bump up to the next standard ultra distance, 100k. This will allow us to include a couple more of the best trails in Pocatello and to be more accurate with our distances. There is a minor change occurring with the two shorter races, namely the elimination of the mile of pavement after the Big Fur Aid Station, this added a little distance but will certainly add to the race
In addition, proceeds from the race will be used to make donations to one or more charities.
Sincerely, Luke Nelson
Race Director for the Scout Mountain Ultra Trail

Thank you for a great, well organized race and a beautiful course. While I had my internal battles on the course, I was never lost and always had what I needed at the aid stations. It was a great intro to ultrarunning – I’m already hungry for another.Jason Johnson
