Due to the recent events with the coronavirus and trying to keep you safe, we have decided to cancel the Q50 Races Badlands50 April 18, 2020. We spoke to the De Soto National Forest Service this morning, and they suggested to cancel the event due to the uncertainty of the park remaining open. In addition to this, the possibility of needing medical assistance at the race and being unable to receive it is a very real factor.

This was not an easy decision, and I hope you all know how much we care about our participants. As always, we thank you for your support of Q50 Races events. To those who have already registered for the Q50 Races Badlands50, you have a few choices:

1.- Rollover your entry for the Q50 Races Badlands50 April 17, 2021.

2.- Choose one of the remaining Q50 Races in 2020 (q50races.com)

We thank you for understanding that our decision was based on what we believed was best for YOU during this time, and if you need to get in touch with us please send us an email: info@q50races.com or call us: 504-390-8807.

Rules and regulations:

Requirements: A whistle, a camelback/hydration belt/water bottle.


 – This event is “Bring Your Own Bottle”.  In our efforts to keep our races and the park green, we will not have cups at the water stations.  This reduces the amount of trash and therefore, our  impact on the park.  Water will be provided for filling up your bottles, camelbacks, and other containers at the water stations on the course.  Drink water to stay hydrated.

You will run in areas where nature will offer all its beauty, please DO NOT leave any trace behind you. Every runner must carry out their trash (granola bar wraps, gel packs, paper, etc) and deposit it in the proper places at the finish line, since this race does not have aid stations throughout the course. It is very important to Q50 Races to preserve the environment where our events take place.

Runners not respecting this rule will be disqualified.

It is completely forbidden to extract and/or collect any kind of flora or fauna, rocks, etc. anywhere on or around the course. Enjoy and respect nature! TAKE CARE OF IT!

For safety reasons, companions, friends or family will only be able to assist runners at the start/finish line.

For safety reasons, no vehicles will be permitted to accompany any runner at any time during the race.

Cut off times are not negotiable.

The numbers given to the runner prior to the race, must be at a visible place on the front of the runner at all times during the course.

For logistic and safety reasons, companions, family and friends will only be permitted in assigned areas noted by Q50.

Q50 will be coming and going all around the course during the event. They will be properly identified. In case of emergency, runners should inform one of these Q50 people.

Q50 reserve the right to take out of the race any runner that is considered not to be physically capable of finishing the race (medical opinion will be requested for this to happen).

A Q50 representative should be informed immediately by any runner dropped
