MEAL PLAN: Meals will be optional and extra for runners rather than included in your entry fee. Since many runners don't show up for the meals, they will no longer be paying for those meals and we hope this change will also help us better determine how many actual meals we need to prepare.

NEW! Western States has selected the 2016 Mohican 100 as a qualifying race for the 2017 Western States 100. Any runner who completes the race within the time limit will be qualified to apply for the lottery, which will be held in December 2016.

Along with the 100, The Mohican 50-Mile and Marathon distances have become increasingly popular, offering runners a taste of the whole enchilada.
