Race Preview-Flagline 50K-Bend

mastondonIf you haven't noticed, 50K races are becoming more popular. The thing about the 50K distance is how much tougher they are than just your park loop 5K course, where everyone wears a tu-tu and pushes a stroller. 50K courses tend to be mountainous single track trail, rock covered routes that push the body to new limits with their elevation gain/loss. The Flagline 50K is everything mentioned and more. With over 4,000 feet of climbing, this is everything one would expect from SuperFit and Super Dave, along with everything one might expect from running in the high alpine country of Mt Bachelor.

The race starts at Mt Bachelor’s West Village and climbs from there. There will be tons of amazing single track, followed by stunning view after stunning view of the 3 Sisters mountains, as well as Broken Top and Mt Bachelor itself.
