Runner Check-in

All runners must check in prior to the race start at the Brewery Arts Center on race morning. This is to ensure an accurate headcount to how many and who is out on the course. If you don’t check-in you don’t officially start which means you don’t officially finish and I would hate for you not to get any credit for enduring and completing this challenge!
Runner check-in is from 5:00AM-5:45AM.
Pre-race briefing starts at 5:50AM with race start at 6:00AM.

Tentative cut-off times – May change due to snow

  • Summit – 10:30AM (4.5hr clock time)
  • Finish – 2:00PM (8 hr clock time)


There will be awards for top 3 overall M&F finishers and age division winners only. Age divisions are M&F: <13, 13-15, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+.

All finishers will be able to download one free photo of themselves taken out on the course by Scott Rokis Photography – NOT AVAILABLE THIS YEAR(Scott’s on another shoot) . All finishers will also get one free draft beer at the Fox Brewpub! Other finisher awards are Kleen Canteen logo’d cups and Headsweat Hats.

Tahoe Dirt & Vert Series awards for top 3 overall M&F finishers and age division winners will also be presented at the conclusion of this event.


There should be plenty of parking along West Kings Street and adjacent residential side streets to accommodate everyone. Still, please plan on arriving early to give yourself plenty of time to park, check-in, and get organized. This is an early start in a residential neighborhood, so please be considerate and keep noise to a minimum when arriving in the morning. Thank you for your understanding!


Race management of the Capital Climb has partnered with the City of Carson and its summer concert series. The evening of the run there will be a free concert held at the start/finish location at the Brewery Arts Center. Please make plans to stay and join us for some live music. More details will be updated as plans progress.
