Triple Crown of 200s
Information about the Triple Crown of 200 Mile Registration
Registration for the Triple Crown (TC200s) for 2022 is via Ultrasignup and is open from June 14-28, 2021 only! This year will be the first time we offer a registration that will allow you to bypass all the race lotteries for the individual events. That means if you want to run the TC200s next year you just need to register between June 14-28, 2021. We have updated and generous transfer policies for the TC200s that will allow you to transfer to 2023 or 2024, rather than just the usual one year transfer option. This will only apply to registered TC runners and follows specific rules and dates outlined on this page.

Why Register for the Triple Crown?
Registering for the Triple Crown will allow you to bypass all three race lotteries and be entered in each race as well as the Triple Crown without the worry that you won't make it in through our individual race lotteries. We have a limited number of race entries via this special registration and once they are sold out runners who want to do the Triple Crown will be required to register for each race lottery in order to do the TC200s. Triple Crown registered runners will be eligible for generous transfer policies allowing them to transfer for up to 2 years instead of the usual one year.

The organization will do its best to allow transfers of remaining TC200 entries to next year if cancellations happen.

Why Choose Destination Trail Events?
All events in the Triple Crown of 200s are organized by Destination Trail, a company that has been organizing 200+ mile races for 8 years beginning with the Tahoe 200 in 2013. Choose an organization inspired by runners and owned and managed by ultrarunners. We are here to support you through your epic adventures with our well marked courses, medical team, live tracking that is monitored 24/7, aid stations with real food including vegetarian and vegan options and a track record of successful, runner-oriented events. Thought and care is put into every aspect of our events from the quality swag and awards you receive - handmade in the USA, to how and where each sign and course marking ribbon is placed.
Choosing a company with a proven track record of successfully organizing multiple 200+ mile races cannot be over-emphasized when it comes to putting your trust, time and investment- your life- into an event of this distance and magnitude. We have had many years to work out the kinks and issues that all events face in the first 3-5 years of their inception. We know where our routes need (extra) markers (where runners get lost), we know where extra water/aid support needs to be, we know when runners tend to have medical issues, what mandatory gear to require, what staff and volunteers to have in place, what foods runners need to make it so many miles at a time (hint: lots of incredible real, hot food!) and so much more, all this based on many years of experience.
Our events are challenging and the ultimate in adventure-based trail running with an emphasis on supporting our participants before, during and after the event, runner safety, and the most scenic mountain routes in the USA. Each event is designed so that you can travel from anywhere in the world and see the most stunning terrain & views on non-repetitive courses. We like to have the most single track mountain trails possible! We'll never have you run in circles or out and back just to get some extra miles. Our 200 mile events generally (pre-COVID) have 15-25% international runners and athletes from almost every state in the country. See why people from all over the world keep choosing to run Destination Trail events - and why we have one of the highest return rate of runners in the industry despite also having the longest distances.
