10 Simple Rules
Dangerous weather can move in at a moments notice. This could result in the suspension of the race for an undetermined period of time and may result in shortening of the race. It may also result in the start of the race being postponed.
If you're a 50km runner, aid station attendees will conduct coherency checks. If an attendee is concerned for your safety, they will have a medic conduct an assessment. If you are judged to be unfit to continue, you will be removed from the race. This decision is final.
Be courteous to volunteers
Check-in and check-out at each aid station
Respect the course (carry your gel wrappers off the course) and place all trash in the cans at aid stations.
Pacers and dogs: Not allowed
Strollers: Not allowed
Trekking poles: Allowed
Headphones: Highly discouraged

"Beaver Flat 50 is a hilly hard-as-hell trail run at Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park, SK with over 2300 meters of vertical gain across 50 kilometers. That's almost 8000 feet of total climb. The prairies are flat. This course is #anythingbutflat. Beaver Flat 50 is a tough get-your-feet-wet, wreck-your-shins, and roll-your-ankle kind of run. You're going to love it, hate it, and love it some more. Guaranteed."
