After parking in Blodgett, racers will depart the parking area via bus and be driven to the base of Mary’s Peak. All racers 50k racers will run 16 miles in the Siuslaw National Forest, through Starker Forest, and cruise into a nice finish at Blodgett School. For those of us participating in the 25k, we’ll enjoy the sights of Mary’s Peak, then finish at Blodgett School. The post race festivities are sure to be incredible! Note that Mary’s Peak is a demanding 4,097 feet high; and 25k racers will have a 3,000 foot elevation gain during their race, with the 50k racers experiencing 6,000 feet elevation gains. I can’t wait – I love hills!
As this race is limited to 200 participants in the 25k, and 200 participants in to 50k, make sure you get registered for this race in advance! The field is small, the course will be incredible, and I can’t wait to run with you all as I complete my first 25k trail race!
