If you indicated on your application you are planning on running the Grand Slam and your name is not drawn in our runner selection process in February, the race committee will hold your application and entry fee.

You will be allowed to run the Wasatch 100 if you satisfy the following requirements:

  1. Grand Slam hopefuls must apply for the Wasatch Front 100 Mile Endurance Run in a timely manner as do all other entrants.  Applications not submitted and fees not postmarked during the specified application period will be returned to sender. IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU APPLY IN A TIMELY MANNER! ABSOLUTELY NO LATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED!
  2. You must also apply to the Grand Slam in a timely manner.
  3. You must successfully complete three of the first four races in the Grand Slam. The Wasatch 100 is the final race and is manditory.
  4. Your completed trail work for the Wasatch 100 must be emailed no later than the August trail work deadline listed on the home page of our website and on your trail work report form. Please remember that we do not accept volunteering at another race as satisfying our trail work requirement nor do we accept trail work performed for entry into another race.

If you do not satisfy all of these conditions your application will be denied and your fee check will be shredded or returned to you if it is a cashier’s check or money order.
