Ready to put all your training to the ultimate test? Want to take a swing at one of the U.S.’s best 100 mile races, which happens to be right here in Oregon? Is an ultra-marathon on your bucket list and you are trying to find just the right one to register for? Want a prize purse to lure your feet into running even faster?
The Mountain Lakes 100 miler is something you need to consider. I wish I was trained and ready for a 100-miler as I would run this race without a second thought at the sanity (insanity?) of running 100 miles (I’m Jones ’in for my first dip into the ultra-scene).
Here are some of the race details. I won’t go into full details of the course, as with a 100 miler, it is safe to assume you will run into everything and should be prepared for lots of ascending and descending. Mountain Lakes 100 race organizers have done a fantastic job detailing the course, so see the links I provide to connect you right to the source for all the nitty-gritty. But briefly, this is what you have to look forward to:
Check out the race course here, and it’s clear while the Mountain Lakes 100 is a fantastic event. I sure wish I was trained and ready to participate, but for those of you who are considering this race – please consider registering in 2020. Note that beginning this year all racers must complete a total of eight hours of trail work, so get to planning on that as well.
