Updated Last: Aug. 26th, 2023
- COURSE: Course information is located under “The Race” tab on this site > find GPS maps there.
- ENTRIES SELL/BUY: Deadline is Thursday, August 22nd 11:59PM. There are no refunds and no transfers to the following year (entry deferral) if you do get an entry. However, you can sell your entry, and that process happens through our registration partner at athlete360.com – details can be found HERE on the process.
- PACKET PICK-UP FRIDAY, August 30th, 2024: Packet pick-up location will be at the SKULLCANDY HQ building (same as the finish venue) – 6301 N. Landmark Dr.; it will be from 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM. If you are racing, YOU MUST SHOW UP TO PICK UP YOUR NUMBER PLATE AND SIGN OUR WAIVER (Please don’t ask to have someone else pick it up for you). We WILL NOT do any packet pick-up on race day morning – sorry, it is not logistically possible. Hours are 3 PM – 7 PM; please come early if you can; it is helpful.
- Online Racer Meeting > For those needing more info, information will be presented on our FB/IG stories this year. You can always email me with questions as well.
- Weather/AQI Clause > The event is non-refundable. If the scheduled Saturday race is ever canceled, the plan will be to run the race on Sunday of Labor Day weekend (as long as conditions permit). Additionally, the race director has the authority to finish the race at Silver Lake in Deer Valley or at Park City Mountain Resort, cutting sections of the course as needed if racers are in danger. Please be aware that we can’t predict or control the weather; we will do everything in our power to complete the race (but your safety is very important to us). Again, the ENTRY IS NON-REFUNDABLE. Thanks for your understanding!
- Air Quality Index (AQI) > We will be keeping an eye on AQI as wildfires continue to be an issue in the west. After research and input from local experts, we have determined that an AQI sustained at or higher than 150 on race day would make physical activity unsafe for participants. In that case, the event will be postponed, and we will explore Sunday or Monday as alternate dates. If we completely cancel, regretfully, there will be no entry fee refund.
- GOOD STUFF, every entered racer gets something groovy just for registering. There are other benefits as well; wheel across the finish line, and you’ll receive your “I did it” recognition gift. There is a raffle, you’ll get two tickets Friday night at packet pick-up, and you can choose what you’d like to “try” and win! A food truck at the finish line, all racers eat a complimentary meal.
- “I’M SOMEBODY” AWARD > Presented by Scott Sports and Inspired by the character from the movie The Jerk, Navin R. Johnson was elated to finally see his name in the phone book and declared, “I’m somebody.” I noticed that you typically see the same fast folks winning stuff because they take top spots at all the races. Well, this program is designed for those of us that typically finish out of the top 10! We will draw a number between 41 and 275 (275 is our average for actual finishers), and these numbers represent finishing places on Saturday. Let’s say the number drawn is 191 and you are the 191st person to cross the finish line, you are going to win a Scott bike (model to be determined). PLEASE NOTE: Due to the ever-changing standings as we suss through DQ’s and get to a final “official” results list (sometimes not until late the following week after the P2P), the “I’m Somebody” award is given to the person that wheels across the finish line as the XXth racer (whatever number is drawn on Friday night). We are well aware of the fact that the racer associated with the number will change during the week following the event, but we feel the approach we’ve taken gives us the random finisher selection we need to award the bike and properly expose our Sponsor during the event (we want to announce the winner on Saturday). The only way the winner would change from the finisher position on Saturday would be if they were disqualified from the race for some reason.
- LODGING: We typically recommend, The Peaks, great central location if you are riding to the start line…there is a public bus service from the finish area too that would take you back to town.

Parking is limited in the morning and you CAN’T leave a car at the start zone (See above info on Parking for Start Area)!
The PCP2P will be a “mass start” of sorts. The event is chip timed, so you don’t need to be in front to have an accurate time. There will be five clusters spaced at least one minute apart from one another. Where you start is up to you, don’t be a poser, race in the group you feel you’ll most likely finish in.
And a special note to our fast (7 – 8 hr) age group riders. PLEASE, don’t be an asshat as you ride up into and through the tail-end of the Pro/Open Women’s group. Be polite, ask for the trail to make a safe pass. If we continue to get complaints about this, and we can identify you by your number when there is an incident, you will be DQ’d.
- 7 AM Sharp! – Pro/Open Men
- Pro/Open Women (30 Seconds off)
- 7 – 8 Hrs. & Singlespeed (3+ minutes off)
- 8 – 9 Hrs. (2 minutes off)
- 9 plus Hrs. (2 minutes off)
PCP2P OFFICIAL FEED/AIDE ZONES
There will be 3 feed zones and an H20 station
- Deer Valley @ Silver Lake Lodge (Mile 25): Support and Spectators Must Park HERE and ride lift up (Lift opens at 8 AM) – each racer gets two free lift tickets to provide to family/friends)
- H20 station (Mile 30) – don’t blow by this without topping off your water; you may regret it on a warm day.
There is no parking along the 224/Guardsman Rd at this support location. Therefore, NO SUPPORTING RACERS HERE, please.
- Park City Support Station (Mile 53) Bottom of First Time Lift – North End of Base Area.
- On the Mid-Mountain trail, just when you need it (Mile 63) – The OASIS, you just might never leave. This will have the good stuff and more, all aimed at getting you to the finish line.
The feed zones are not neutral – meaning racers are not required to stop if you spend 5 minutes at the feed zone and the guy behind you rides on – you’ll drop 5 minutes to him. Also, you can coordinate support anywhere you would like on the course.
Additionally, these are fill-and-go support stations (meaning, we are providing the beverages to fill your bottles and hydration packs). At most stations, we have a lot of volunteers and they are happy to help you fill up.
You can take food/beverages anywhere on the course (that is legally accessible). Please read below about the official feed zones!
- At Silver Lake Lodge (Upper Deer Valley) > this will be located at the top of Silver Lake Express. ALL PUBLIC SUPPORT MUST BE DONE WITHIN THE ZONE WE MARK OFF – IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE DO NOT IMPEDE ON DEER VALLEY’S PAYING LIFT-SERVED MOUNTAIN BIKERS. Each racer will receive 2 lift tickets for a FREE round trip ride up to Silver Lake (THERE IS NO PARKING AT SILVER LAKE FOR THE PCP2P EVENT) > Your Friends and Family MUST PARK HERE
- Park City Mountain (bottom of First Time Lift) > Again, please have your support crew use caution and stay clear of the racers getting to and from the PCP2P Support Zone. There will be an area designated for private support.
- The Park City Point 2 Point course is structured as open feed, meaning, someone can hand you food anywhere on course (that is safe and legally accessed).
FEED ZONE FOOD
3. CarboRocket 333 for one-off mixing (we will not have this pre-mixed)
4. We will have one-off tabs from GU (electrolyte drinks only with no caloric value – and NO Caffeine)
5. Cold Coke (Support Station #2 and Support Station #3)
We will have chews, waffles, and gels provide by GU.
Assorted Real Food
Fruits, sweets, and salty treats (#2 and #3 Stations only)
If there is a product you can’t compete without, we encourage you to bring your own specifics.
We hate to do this, but for the safety of the racers (you) and protecting the event, we need to set a cut-off time just prior to the long and very hard-to-access (in case of emergency) section of Mid-Mountain Trail. So racers not making it to the second aide/feed zone (Park City Mountain Resort) by 3:30 PM (that gives you 8.5 hours to ride 53 miles) will be asked to forfeit their number plate to the race officials.
This needs to be done at the finish line with the race promoter. Gather the details of your protest and present them before the presentation of the category awards being protested. Once awards to the top five have been presented, they are final (positions below the top 5 can change after the award presentation but not after the day of the race).
- Please, no headphones.
- There are a few sections that the course is on public paved roads and/or crosses paved roads. These roads are open to traffic and it is the riders responsibility to obey traffic laws and stay safe.
- Helmets are mandatory (legally needed to say that!)
- Be cool to the volunteers; they are some of the best folks you will ever meet – they are here on their own time.
- BE KIND TO THE OTHER TRAIL USERS IN PARK CITY; just because you paid to race doesn’t give you a license to be a jerk out on our Park City trails – these trails are for everyone and this IS NOT A CLOSED Course. This race has been granted permission to exist, it can be taken away and we don’t want that.
- Have an issue to report during the race or a question? Text us at 435.246.1263 This is a TEXT only phone number, no calls. Please program this number into your phone prior to the race.
- If you are dropping out of the race, please report your number to the next support station, or send a text to 435.246.1263.
- Lights / Headlamps – If you are a back of the pack rider and expect to be finishing near cutoff, it is a great idea to have access to a light from the last support station (#2). The last few riders always end up needing lights.
FINISH LINE FOOD
We will have a food truck at the finish, racers will receive a meal and Powerade if you’d like (apologies, no beer, we do not have a liquor license) when you provide your wristband. You can still eat if you DNF, just don’t cut off your wristband.
The guaranteed cash payout to the open classes is listed below and will payout 5 deep.
- The Winner of Each Age Group Category Receives $350!
- Open Class (Male & Female) 1st – $2,000 | 2nd – $1,000 | 3rd – $750 | 4th – $650 | 5th – $550
