Is running a 50k on your bucket list?
Or are you looking for a goal race in 2022 to get you moving?

Join the supportive community of Becoming Ultra-  train with and participate in the Desert Rats 50k with us in spring 2022!
Not everyone wants to be in the spotlight as a featured runner on the podcast but that doesn’t mean you can’t partake in the excitement and experience of training for and completing a 50k. 

Our Season 11 runners will be training under the guidance of world class coaches for the Desert Rats 50k and trail running festival in the heart of Western Colorado.

Soak in the colorful desert landscape and join us for a weekend full of adventure and friendship including a course preview run + recovery session on Friday, pre-race group warm-up, celebratory post race dinner and a biking tour of Colorado’s best wineries on Sunday!

You know that feeling of support and camaraderie of a shared goal realized?  Imagine a team of runners from all over the globe supporting each other while training for the same event and then on race day sharing in the glory of finishing the race to a cheering crowd of familiar faces!

P.S. The trail running festival includes a marathon, 1/2 marathon and 10k distances too!  If you or a friend wants to train for and complete another distance we’d love to have you join the team too!
