For those tackling the challenging 14 miler, the race will begin at the Hardesty Trailhead, which is west of Oakridge, Oregon, at 8 a.m. The 5.5 mile race will begin at 8:30 a.m, but participants must catch the shuttle that will leave from the parking lot no later than 8:15 a.m. to get to the 5.5 mile start line. The 14 miler has a time limit to complete the race in 4 hours. The challenge presented for the 14 miler is the 3,300 foot climb that will occur in the first 4.5 miles, following by a 3,300 foot descent immediately after. Then, 14 milers will pick up the 5.5 course. The 5.5 miler is considered ‘easy to moderate’ in difficulty, and will feature gradual ascents and descents. Check out the detailed course map to help you decide which event you want to register for.
There will be a good spacing of aid stations available for participants. For the 14 mile event, aid will be available at mile 3, 4.5, 8.5 and 12. For the 5.5 mile event, aid is available at the 3.5 mile point. Awards will be presented to the overall male and female finisher for each distance, as well as the top three in each age group.
