Time Limit
There will be time limits in place for the Marathon and 50k which are as follows:
  • Marathon - 8 hours 45 minutes
  • 50k - 9 hours
Headphones are allowed on dirt road sections only. Please do not wear headphones on single-track trail, while crossing paved roads, when getting aid at aid stations, or while crossing the finish line.
Course Markings
The most important markings along the course will be the polka-dot flagging, which indicated a turn at an intersection. There will be at least two of these flags before a turn in the course, which will be placed before and on the same side as the required turn.
As you start to approach the intersections, please look for any polka-dot flags before turning. Waiting until you're in the intersection to determine the correct direction may be confusing and you may go the wrong way.
After you complete the turn, there will be orange and/or pink flagging indicating the correct route. We also hang blue ribbons at critical junctions indicating the wrong way. Blue is bad!
If you go 3-4 minutes without seeing your respective flagging, it's likely you've gone off course and should retrace your path until you find the course again.
Please be courteous on the trail. If you're passing another runner or hiker, announce "on your left" as you approach.
Aid Stations
There will be fully-stocked aid stations every 3-6 miles. You can expect fresh fruit, salty snacks, assorted candy, water, and Clif Shot Electrolyte sports drink. It is highly recommended that runners carry at least 20 oz. of water between aid stations.

What are the aid stations at the Redwood Trail Run (Summer) races stocked with?

Should I still bring my own water to the Redwood Trail Run (Summer) race?
Absolutely, runners are advised to bring at least 20 oz. water between aid stations. Additionally, in an effort to help the environment Coastal Trail Runs are going cupless and ask that runners bring their own water containers. There will be Hydrapak SpeedCup's on sale for $5 at check-in.

The associated app has great ideas but poor implementation. The UX was terrible, and it never did recover from losing track of me. Instead, hours later it was telling me I was of course. It was also unusable later when I had turned off GPS permissions even though all I was after was results.
Aside from not having all the port-a-potties unlocked at the start of the race which created a long line and made others late in starting their race, those that were can't be shut properly. You have to hang on to the door so it won't open while you're using it. Getting out of the venue was also a hassle. But the photographers were very friendly and morale-boosters. Hire them again, I say!
