Bask in Beauty at the Lithia Loop Trail Marathon

Trail runners, this November marathon is for you! Rogue Valley Runners is putting on the Lithia Loop Trail Marathon for the 14th year. This loop course starts in Lithia Park and circumnavigates The Ashland watershed, accumulating 7,200 fee of elevation change. The course consists of 2 miles of pavement, 3 miles of double track trail, 5 miles of single track trail, and 16 miles of closed course dirt road.  The route is sure to challenge you as it climbs over three thousand feet in the first 10 miles then descends that amount in the last 6.

The Lithia Loop Trail Marathon is well-supported with 5 aid stations along the course. Aid stations will include GU energy gels and SKRATCH electrolyte drink. Your entry fee also includes post-race food and beverages, a technical shirt (if registered before the shirt deadline,) and a medal. There will be awards and prizes presented after the race.

Organizers encourage participants to be prepared for possible rain or snow at high elevations, but the finish line has often seen sunshine and temperatures of 60 degrees. In other words, wear layers and be prepared for our crazy November weather. There is a 6 hour time limit for this marathon.

Space is limited, so plan to register for the Lithia Loop Trail Marathon soon and enjoy a beautiful fall marathon in Southern Oregon.
