Death Valley Century

 

 
Routes: 100 miles
Difficulty of Greatest Route: D - Difficult terrain with longer, steeper hills
Entry Limit: 300 riders
Time Zone: Pacific Standard Time (PST)
 
Costs

$145* per rider.

*Due to strict permit requirements imposed by Death Valley National Park, entry fees are higher than our standard century event pricing. In addition to expensive permit fees required by NPS and Cal Trans, Planet Ultra must hire 2 ambulances and also at least 2 National Park Service Ranger Monitors for the duration of the event. With the 300-rider limit, the per person cost is much, much greater. To make this event possible, we do have to charge more. We think it’s worth it!

What's Included?

Entry includes three fully stocked checkpoints along the route with water and a great selection of food and snacks; roving SAG support; Death Valley Century tech tee and finisher award
