In the little mountain town of Westfir Oregon there are trails. Amazing mountain bike trails, to be exact. Elevated Trail Racing knows this and last year they created an awesome trail running experience called the Westfir 30K/50K, using those great trails.
First is the 30K, which is an out and back with over 3,700 feet of gain. The gain is all in the first half as you climb to Windy Pass on the Alpine Trail, then bomb right back down to the finish.
The 50K is a classic lollipop course which also climbs Windy Pass, after it sends you around the Cloverpatch trail. All told, runners will gain more than 7,000 feet making this a very challenging course.
Afterward, enjoy lunch from the sponsors, and a beer from Ninkasi Brewing.
When: Sunday, October 23rd.
Where: The race venue is located at the Office Covered Bridge parking area in Westfir, approximately 40 miles southeast of Eugene.
Cost/Register: 30K = $60 (until Sept 30th, then goes to $75). 50K = $90 (until Sept 30th, then goes to $95). Register online at UltraSignup
