Participants may choose from the 20k run, 20k two-person relay (the first leg is more difficult than the second leg), or the 10k. The Ridgeline Ramble course will require participants to be shuttled from the parking and packet pick-up area at Lane Community College to the start line for their chosen distance. There is no parking at the trailheads, so make sure to park at Lane Community College to catch the shuttle to your start line.
The shuttle will drop the 20k and 20k relay participant #1 at the Blanton Road trailhead. For those participating in the 10k (me!) and 20k relay participant #2, we will be dropped off by the shuttle at Fox Hollow trailhead. First leg relay participants will be shuttled back to the start line from the Fox Hollow trailhead exchange point. Both portions of the course consist of 80% trail and dirt roads, with the remaining 20% occurring on pavement. This is necessary to get us back to the finish line at Lane Community College, where we parked our vehicles to catch the shuttle. The 20k features a 459 foot net elevation drop, and the 10k will have a 341 foot net elevation drop. Make sure to check out the course map details, especially for relay participants, so you are familiar with the course you will follow. The Ridgeline Trail is a gem in Eugene, and you will enjoy running either portion of the trail you choose.
Aid stations will be available on the course for all distances. The 20k will feature 7 aid stations and the 10k will have 3 aid stations. You will find water and light snacks at these aid stations, with Gatorade and Gu energy gel supplied at the Fox Hollow and Willamette aid stations.Age group awards will be presented to the top overall male and female in the 20k and 10k, the top three in each age group for men and women, and the top three relay teams in each team division and category. Everyone is eligible for random prize drawing items!
