Live EVENT FAQs
Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are welcome at Gunstock Mountain Resort! All dogs must be under control at all times either with a leash or voice-command; and, owners must pick up after their dog. Under no circumstances may a dog be left in a vehicle.
Can I reserve a campsite even if I didn't reserve one when I registered?
All camping reservations must be made through the Gunstock Campgrounds.
Can I update my registration?
Yes! All changes to your registration, besides the runner’s name, can be made free of charge. Simply log into your account onVentures Endurance, click the Registrations button on the left-side of your screen, click View Registration next to your Gunstock TrailFest registration, then make the changes you need on your registration page.
Can I start running earlier than my scheduled start time?
No. All runners must start their race at the scheduled time.
Can I transfer my registration (bib) to another person?
To Transfer Your Registration to Another Runner: 1. The original runner must log into their Enmotive account and click on the Registrations button on the left side of their screen to locate their Gunstock TrailFest registration. 2. Once the original runner locates the registration they’d like to transfer, they just need to click the blue “Actions” button to the right of the race name, and then “Transfer Registration.” 3. Then, enter the new runner’s email address to begin the transfer process. 4. The new runner will then receive an email from Enmotive with a link to complete the transfer. 5. After clicking the transfer link in the Enmotive email, scroll down to click the green “Accept transfer” button. 6. Complete the registration process, and pay the $10 transfer fee. 7. Once completed, the new runner will receive an email confirmation, and the original runner will receive an email confirming their registration has been cancelled. If the transaction is not completed by the new runner within 48 hours of the email sent, the transfer request is cancelled, and the registration will remain in the original runner’s name.
Can I switch distances before the race starts?
Yes. For example: If you register for the 80K (50 miler) you may switch to the 30K. Likewise if you register for the 5K you may switch to the 10K. If you switch from a shorter race to a longer race then you will need to pay the difference in entry fees based on the date of your request. If you switch from a longer race to a shorter race then you will forfeit the difference. Simply log into your account on Ventures Endurance click on View Registration under Upcoming Events, and then the Edit Category link.
Can I switch distances after the race starts?
No. You must complete the distance that you started. You may not “downshift” to a shorter distance after the race starts (i.e. 50k to 30k).
Can I transfer to one of your other races in 2023?
More details are coming soon!
How do I add myself to a team?
For categories with team prizes (see question below “Is there a team prize?” for more details), you’ll be prompted to either create or join a team when registering for the event. A team is completely optional and not required to participate.
Is there a time limit for the 50K or 50 Mile race?
Yes. There is an 11 hour time limit to complete the 50K race, and a 13 hour time limit to complete the 80K (50 mile) race. In addition 80K runners must complete their 6th lap (60K) by 4:00 PM (10 hours), and their 7th lap (70K) by 5:30 PM (11.5 hours).

There are no teams in the Kids’ Run, 1.5 Mile Mountain Climb, and 80K races. A team consists of at least 4 runners registered under the same team name in the same race. Team names can be fun and creative — they can be something other than a club name. The first place team is defined as the fastest combined time of the top 4 team members.

There are two types of accommodations available: 1) Gunstock Campgrounds 2) discounted lodging at nearby hotels Take a look at our Event Details page for more information about each of these options.
