Tillamook Burn

May 5 - May 7

Event Overview
Welcome to the Tillamook Burn Trail Run™, featuring three beautiful and challenging trail races of 50 miles, 50K and 20 miles, plus a 3-day 100 mile stage race option for those who dare to run all three races. ‘The Burn’ is a festive Pacific NW springtime trail running tradition, staged at historic Reehers Camp in the lush and rugged Tillamook State Forest halfway between Portland and the Oregon Coast. Prepare for rumbling waterfalls, brisk stream crossings and a million shades of green, as brilliant spring foliage, fiddleheads and blossoms line every inch of the course.

Background
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 features dozens of miles of exquisite single-track trails showcasing hundreds of massive “grey ghost” snags and charred stumps– enduring relics of the vast old growth rainforest that reigned here prior to the Tillamook Burn.

Land Acknowledgement: We honor and recognize that we gather for this event on the traditional lands of the Tillamook, Clatskanie and Atfalati (Tualatin) Kalapuya peoples, who have occupied and stewarded these lands for countless generations. We respect their right to self-determination and their sacred connection to these lands and waters.
