Siskiyou Outback (SOB) Trail Run
July 9 @ 5:00 AM - 9:00 PM PDT$35 – $175
Join us on July 9th, 2022 high above the Rogue Valley for the 23nd annual Siskiyou Out Back Trail Run (The SOB)! We have something for everyone, our original 50K and 15K, and our newer races the 50 Mile and 100K distances. Registration opens November 30. Registration in the longer races (100K/50M/50K) will be limited to runners 18 years or older unless by prior consent by the Race Directors.
Each run begins and ends at the Mt. Ashland Lodge, at an altitude of 6500 feet. From there the courses meander along the Pacific Crest Trail with breathtaking views of Mt. Shasta, Mt McLaughlin, and the Siskiyou and Cascade mountain ranges. The total course elevation for the 50K is about 4200 feet. The 50 mile features about 8400 feet of climbing and the 100K a whopping ~10,500 feet. Please note, the 100K is not easy as our finish rate of just over 50% in 2021 will attest. Many of our runners classify it as “challenging”. Should you finish, a 100 miler is well within your grasp.
Bonus: our ultramarathon distances are all UTMB qualifiers! The 100K is worth 4 points, the 50M is worth 3 points and the 50K is worth 2 points. Additionally, the 100K distance is a Western States 100-mile Endurance Run qualifier.
