  • Awards Ceremony – Begins at 4:00 p.m.  The time was moved back since many age group winners were still on the course at 3:30 p.m.

Plan to stick around for the post-race party. Mingle with the runners and your friends, dance, hula hoop, soak in the mountain stream, get a massage, listen to the music.  This is a party not to miss!!!

360 Club: 50km racers finishing under 360 minutes (6 hours) will be inducted into this distinguished club and awarded the much-coveted 360 Club hat! Click here to see 360 Club inductees!   Hats will be given out at the finish line.

SISU Award: 50km racers who have never run any other ultra-marathon races before and finish in 11.5 hours or less will be inducted into the  SISU Club.  Click here to learn more about the SISU Award.  Sisu’s will be acknowledged at the awards ceremony.  Sisu hats will be awarded to the Sisu finishers at the finish line.

Lowlander: 50km racers who live and spend more than 80% of their time below 2,000 feet will be entered into the Lowlander category.  Lowlander hats will be awarded hat at the finish line.

Bloodiest Finisher:  Keep your eyes ahead and pick up your feet.  Stay alert!  We want you all to finish injury free!  In the event you take a digger bring your bloody self and your dramatic story to the awards ceremony to share.  The one with most blood . . . or the best story will win a red Orange Mud Transition Towel with the Dirty 30 Logo on it.   The crowd picks the winner.

Peppy Plugger: Sometimes it pays to be last.  At the Dirty 30, we want to award the person who actually gets the most for their money by spending the most time on the course.  We feel you deserve acknowledgment and a special award for getting out there to run this tough race, despite not being a “fast racer”.

Traveled the Furthest:  If you think you traveled the furthest specifically to race in the  Golden Gate Dirty 30, come to the awards ceremony and tell us where you are from.  The Dirty 30er who traveled the furthest will win a prize.
