Burning Man Ultramarathon – virtual edition
Leave the hustle and bustle of civilization behind and enter the isolated, yet lively, world of the Burning Man Festival in the Black Rock desert!
A utopian playground for adults, with art, community, music, dancing, lots of dust, and the ten principles of the wonderful gift economy where no money is exchanged!
Pull on your running sneakers and hit the playa for one of the most unique and insane 50K’s out there.
Wear whatever you love best while running – whether that’s a tutu, sports bra and tights, or nothing at all. The race is a party!
Be sure to have a Burning Man ticket (registration opens 21 March) – it’s impossible to run without one!
Have your friends come to cheer you on, take a yoga class, run the beer mile, the 5k, run easy, or just hang out with some friendly folks. During the race there are cocktails, fun, music, and lots of cheering.
This is Burning Man! A wonderful gift economy — no money is exchanged! Putting on a race like this isn’t necessarily “free”….If you want to contribute to help offset the costs (i.e. race clock, race numbers, safety pins, t-shirts, food, water, other supplies & expenses), feel free to donate.
