Race Information

There is a 50K, 15M, and Mountain Marathon, Tillamook forest races that will challenge and inspire you!
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.


And you thought the 25K was a steep and technical course. With this Mountain Marathon (27.5 mile) race you'll go up the backside of Elk Mountain, over to King's summit, down and back up to the Elk summit before heading back over to King's and then the finish. That's 8,000 feet of gain and a little more in loss!
The 50K, is less technical but run on single-track trails all along the Wilson River Trail and has 6,500 feet of gain. It is a double out and back.
