Tillamook Burn 100m
April 30 - May 1$325 – $350
The mountainous, temperate Tillamook Rainforest in Northwestern Oregon is steeped in history, most notably, the legendary “Tillamook Burn” forest fires that consumed 355,000 acres of colossal old growth forest from 1933-1951. One of the largest tree replanting campaigns in human history led to the formation of the Tillamook State Forest in 1974. Today, a lush second-growth forest thrives here, offering dozens of miles of exceptional single-track trails for us to enjoy, while showcasing hundreds of massive, emblematic “grey ghost” snags and charred stumps– enduring relics of the vast old growth rainforest that reigned here prior to the Tillamook Burn.
he Tillamook Burn 100 miler is a springtime gem, offering an incredible early season mountain 100 miler in the Pacific NW on April 30th & May 1st. The format is mostly out and back with two loop-style segments. The course is very accessible for crew, making this a wonderfully social and well-supported race. The route straddles the Oregon Coast Range mountain divide starting from Reehers Camp down to the Hwy 6 recreation corridor and back, involving 21,000 ft. of ascent and 21,000 ft. of descent. There are 15 aid stations along the course and a 34 hour overall time limit.
