Registration Fees

Entry fee: $165.
Due to strict permit requirements imposed by Death Valley National Park, we have to charge a bit more for this event. In addition to costly permit fees required by NPS and Cal Trans, Planet Ultra must hire ambulance services, CHP patrol, and cover  hourly fees for 2 National Park Service Ranger Monitors for the duration of the event. With the 300-rider limit, the per person fixed costs are much, much greater. To make this event possible, we do have to charge more. We think it’s worth it!

Included

Entry includes three fully stocked checkpoints along the route with drinks and a great selection of food and snacks; roving SAG support; Death Valley Century tech tee; and per rider donation to Death Valley Natural History Association.

Prize / Race Categories

Due to permitting restrictions, this is NOT a race nor is the event formally timed. We have a Strava club for this event in which you can post times and see how you compare to others if you wish.
