Salem isn’t well know for home of the Ultramarathon, but Crusty Cap is making Salem known on the map! In 2107 Crusty Cap Events brought Angry Owl Ultramarathon to Salem! Now, in 2019, they are bringing a NEW Ultra Lost in the Sauce 50k on April 20th. They are also offering a 30k and a 10k if the 50 is a little much for you. Although I don’t consider myself an “Ultra” runner, I have run Ultra’s. I ran Angry Owl in ’17 and Crusty Cap does a excellent job with their races. Very organized and comfortable setting. Race director Josh Christensen is great at answering questions that may come up as well.

WHAT: 10k, 30k, and 50k footrace through Salem’s Minto-Brown Island Park.
The course is two loops that are about 5k each. An aid station is available every 5k. Bring your own water bottles/cup to have at the aid station. To help reduce waist, this is a requirement. The aid station will be stocked with water, Tailwind Nutrition Endurance Fuel, energy gels, fruits, salty snack, sweet snacks and much more. Each loop consist of about 50% pavement and 50% dirt or gravel trails. A few small hills are on some sections of the trail and aren’t super well maintained. Should be fun!
Each runner will begin on the red loop first, then go onto the yellow loop. 10k runners will run each loop one time. 30k, three times, and 50k runners will run each loop a total of five times. Lost in the Sauce will be professionally timed by Race Northwest

- Each runner will check in before the race begins race day morning and receive their own Lost in the Sauce cap made by Alpine Dam
