Awards
There will be a $100 cash prize for the women’s and men’s overall winners of the 50K. There will also be $100 cash premiums at the 1.3mi mark of both days for men and women.
Customized cowbell awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers in each race in each of the following age groups:
Under 20, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+
Racers will receive customized dog tag finisher’s awards as they cross the finish line.
Placer’s awards will be distributed at each day’s awards ceremony. Awards and mementos will not be mailed after the event.

Packet Pickup / Expo
Packet Pick-Up & Late Registration will be at the Fruita Community Center (324 N Coulson St) on Friday from 5:00-7:00p. Rolling in place of our usual pasta dinner, we'll have the Spaghetti Mill food truck parked outside, offering a special meal deal for our racers! Our Race Directors and crew will be staying for dinner and it's a great chance to get all of your questions answered. (If you're unable to make the early pickup, we will have it available Saturday and Sunday morning before the races.)

Your race number and packet will also be available at the Start/Finish Line beginning at 5:30a on Saturday and 7:00a on Sunday. Sunday’s racers can pick up their packets at Friday night, Saturday morning or Sunday morning packet pick-ups. Packets will not be available after race start on Saturday or Saturday nights.

Weather on the Kokopelli can vary. The averages for April are a low of 35 & a high of 66 degrees. We’ve had anywhere from 30’s with sleet to 80’s and sunny – come prepared!

Directions
The Start/Finish lines will be at the Mack Trailhead on the Kokopelli Trail just west of Fruita, Colorado, at exit #11 off I-70. Head South toward the frontage road.

Parking
Parking will be very limited and carpooling is strongly recommended. We may need to divert some traffic to an alternate parking lot. Please plan to arrive at least one hour prior to your start time to allow time for this, if required.
