Race Preview: 2018 Mt. Hood 50 (50M, 50K, & 25K)

One of Oregon’s most runnable ultras, hosted by the fabulous RDs at Go Beyond Racing, the Mt. Hood 50 is scheduled for July 14-15, 2017. Unfortunately all 3 distances are filled and have wait lists (deadline is still July 9). Registration was filled and closed months ago, but put this event on your 2019 run calendar and sign up early – it’s a great one! Or, if you still want to get up there for the weekend, you can sign up to volunteer (see their Ultra Signup page).

Choose from a 50M, 50K, or 25K and enjoy the gorgeous singletrack of the Pacific Crest Trail and views of Mt. Hood, while racking up some UTMB points.

Registration opens in early January and sells out very quickly (the 50M is by lottery only). The costs are $120 for the 50M, $90 for the 50K, and $70 for the 25K, which always includes top notch aid stations, post-race food and beer, raffle prizes, beautiful photography, and a scenic course.

Check out the race website for more information and stay up to date on their Facebook page and the Ultra Signup page (**hint hint, for notice on when registration for 2019 opens!**).
