The inaugural Drift 100 will begin on March 13, 2020. The course is approximately 101 miles (because why stop at 100, #amiright?), with around 7,300 feet of elevation gain/loss. This is a self-sufficient race. No drop bags, no pacers, no cell service. Check points are separated by upwards of 35 miles of varied conditions and temperatures. Much of the course is along the Continental Divide, as Drifters will be both navigating back and forth over the Divide itself and traversing it, you will reach elevations just shy of 10,000 feet. 100-mile Drifters unable to finish the race will be required to pay a $200 drop-out fee to Tip Top Search and Rescue–no exceptions. This recreation event is authorized under a Special Use Permit with the Bridger-Teton National Forest and the Shoshone National Forest.
This course will start and end in Kendall Valley along the Green River, 25 miles from Pinedale, Wyoming. Racers will head north toward Dubois and head back, forming a figure-8. Less than 10% of the race will be traveled twice. Race time cutoff is 48 hours. The course is approximately 101 miles with 7,300 feet of elevation gain/loss and topping out at around 9,800 feet.
