The Old Cascadia trail races will take you to some of the oldest summits in Oregon for an unforgettable race experience.
The Cascade Mountain Range is really two ranges in one. The familiar High Cascades are a young range of soaring, snow-capped active volcanoes, that include peaks like Mt Jefferson and Mt Hood - which can be seen from the course. However, the High Cascades owe their elevation to the westerly Old Cascades, the ancient, deeply eroded mountains that formed the foundation of the high peaks tens of millions of years prior. The extinct volcanoes of the Old Cascades are renown for their lush rainforests, brilliant meadows and prolific wildlife.
Each race offers running through such landscapes along with sweeping views, creek crossings and big climbs all the while running on some of the best single-track trails Oregon has to offer.
