Due to the unprecedented escalation in the COVID pandemic, the 2021 Pistol party will be held virtually. To make it super easy for everyone to still participate, runners will have the whole month of March during which they can complete their distance. So grab your peeps, get signed up, and get ready for the Pistol party!

What Are The Rules?
We’re in this to have fun. So you have to smile at least once during your run!
Your miles must all be completed in one continuous effort anytime from March 1, 2021 to March 31, 2021.
Your miles must be intentional and specifically for completing this event. No daily step counting, ellipticals, bicycles, etc. Only distance completed on your feet (or hands/knees) can be counted.
You must upload your results directly to UltraSignup and make sure they are showing correctly. We will not be doing that for you, so don’t send them to us.
The results you upload must include the date, distance, exact overall time (start to finish…including stops, rest breaks, etc.), and location. If you are not submitting a GPS file, you must submit other photo documentation (photo of watch reading, treadmill reading, etc.) We will not be reaching out to request incomplete information or corrections.
The results you upload to UltraSignup will need to confirm that you have completed at least the distance you registered for to be an official finisher. If they don’t, we will still mail you everything except a finishers medal.
This is being done on the honor system. We trust our running peeps to be accurate and honest and not game the system. Those who are naughty will invoke the wrath of the running gods, who may forever follow them with bad karma!
Please, no Perry Mason loophole searching. If you have to ask if something is allowed, then it probably isn’t.
Due to this being a virtual event, there are no placement awards.
If something comes up that’s not covered here, let us know. We’ll address it.
We reserve the right to modify the rules as needed.
Be prepared for changes. 2020 has already done a great job of that for us, hasn’t it?

What Will I Get?
Unique custom finishers award engraved with your name, date, and time. These are the same awards normally given out at the event, including the coveted 100K Pistol award and 100 mile Pistol buckle, each with the stand with the customized plate with your finishers info.
100K and 100 Mile finishers will get some additional surprise swag
A special 5 time finishers mug if this is your 5th official Pistol finish (details covered during the registration process).
The uber cool Arsenal Collection Award if, with this finish, you have officially completed all four of the Pistol Ultra Run distances (details covered during the registration process).
Long sleeve gender specific tech shirt
BOCO visor
Runner’s gloves
Some other useful surprise swag

When Will I Get My Stuff?
We will be reviewing and confirming the finisher’s results periodically throughout March that have been uploaded to UltraSignup. Once your results are confirmed, we will mail your finisher’s medal and swag to your UltraSignup address (so make sure it’s correct!).
NOTE: Shipping outside the USA will incur additional charges.
