Race Preview: 2018 Hot Springs Trail Run (McKenzie River Trail)

Are you ready for some spring trail racing? Check out the Hot Springs Trail Run at Belknap Hot Springs. This event includes an 18 mile run and a 5 mile run/walk on the McKenzie River Trail. The finish line for both distances will be at Belknap Hot Springs Lodge and Gardens. Participants will park at the lodge and then take a shuttle to the start lines. The start line for the 5 mile course will be at Deer Creek Trail Head and the 18 mile start line will be at Carmen Reservoir Trail Head.

Aid stations will be stocked with water, Gatorade, KIND Snacks, GU energy gels (chocolate & vanilla), peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, bar-b-que chips, salt caps, and hard candy. The 4 aid stations (for the 18 mile course) will also have toilets nearby and first aid kits.

Both courses have time limits and participants will be pulled off the course if they do not make it to an aid station by a specified time. The 18 mile course time limit is 5 hours and the 5 mile time limit is 2 hours.

After the race there will be a complimentary lunch for participants put on by Pink Buffalo Racing. Participants will also receive a pool ticket for an hour in the Belknap Hot Springs Lodge and Gardens pool. How great does that sound after a long trail race?

Register soon! This race is filling up fast.
