What makes these races special?
Forest Park. It’s a real treasure for trail runners and an opportunity to run a race on its trails shouldn’t be missed. The race routes will include everyone’s favorite – Wildwood Trail – but also some lesser traveled and less well-known paths. The race will support the Forest Park Conservancy again this year. Last year we donated $2,500 to the park.

3 Distances. A 50K, a half-marathon, and new for 2013, a 5-miler.
- The only 50K in the Portland area, this ultra marathon includes approximately 4,000′ of elevation gain and some beautiful trails deeper in the park.
- The half marathon course is improved for 2013, including more trails, and maybe some more hills.
- A tough out-and-back 5-miler that gets its share of hills too.
Community. The Portland trail running club, TrailFactor, is hosting this event so its a great chance to hang out friends, run, and volunteer together. In addition to the race, there are trail maintenance opportunities to give back to the park and a few group training runs.
