Stunning and Epic on May 20th, 2023 Come Run with us for 50 Miles, 50K, or 25K in one of the most challenging and beautiful places on the planet. Nestled in the Heart of the Willamette Valley sits the highest peak in the Oregon Coast Range Marys Peak at 4101 Ft. Marys Peak was known as Chateemanwi, or “place of spiritual power” to the native Kalapuya tribe who used the land for spirit quests. Nestled on her slopes are a town, cemetery and old logging railroad. The streams that flow down the mountain’s sides provide water to Corvallis from the Rock Creek Watershed. Many of the lands surrounding Marys Peak were privately owned, until they were added to the Siuslaw National Forest to protect the source that provides Corvallis with 40% of their drinking water.
The original east-of-Wy’east race, this 50-miler and 50K is super scenic with so many mountain views. You will want to return to these ridge line trails again and again. The Wy’east Wonder is a point-to-point race run mostly on two ridges alongside Mt. Hood; Gunsight Ridge and Surveyor’s Ridge. You will have so many views of Wy’east (the Multnomah Tribe word for Mt. Hood) as you make your way from it’s southern side around to the east, that you may actually get tired of looking at it. We promise we’ll take your breath away, and it won’t be from only running. The 50M route has 7,082′ of elevation gain and 10,012 of loss. The 50K has 4,193′ of gain and 7,122′ of loss.
Choose from 10k, 50k, 100k and 100 miles - you have 30 hours. This is a 10k loop course in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, in a recreation area managed by the Corps of Engineers. It runs through field, forest, and along the majestic Columbia River. The course is dirt trail and graveled trail. There is roughly 200 feet of elevation gain and 200 feet of elevation loss. The start and finish of the loop are at the North Bonneville Ball Fields where participants can stop for refreshments as they are counted by the chip mat. Runners can put up a tent at the park for a change of gear or a nap. This is a great opportunity to test all your gear or your stamina with limited consequences!
One of the country’s most beautiful 100-mile races that runs mostly along the Pacific Crest Trail. This race features the best trail running Oregon has to offer – technical and rocky sections, views of mountain peaks and lakes, and luscious sections of single track. Plus the absolute best aid stations staffed with people who have run hundreds and care a lot about you getting to that finish line. Plus there is a free pasta feed the night before and breakfast at the end of the race. This race will change you.
These are rugged races that involve scrambling up rocky mountains and descended steep trails. A real mountain race! The 25K race is a very steep and technical course run on single-track trails in the Tillamook State Forest. Runners will summit two mountains – Elk and Kings Mountains – and involve 5,800 feet of gain. The 50K course changed in 2022. Now, the 50K racers get to go up and down Elk and Kings Mountains just like the 25Kers. This is a much more technical course, with 7,500 feet of gain. Both races finish at the Smith Homestead, near the Tillamook Forest Center. This is where all runners pick up their bibs and where the 50K racers start. The 25K runners take a shuttle to the start near Elk Creek campground. This is legit hard. But […]
