2022 Race Series Preview: Alpine Running

If there was ever a race director who made all my trail running dreams come true, it’d be Alpine Running. Accomplished ultra runners themselves, these RDs know all the best trails (with all the best views), how to run a smooth event (with all the best snacks), and really just provide top-notch races here in Oregon.

They have everything from halfs to hundos and they are truly some of my favorite events to both run and support.

Take a peek at their upcoming year and throw one on your calendar. I do every year and while they are always a challenge on my body, they’re invariably great for my soul.
