The lottery for the 2020 will be open from February 15th-24th, 2020 and the names will be drawn and announced on March 1st. Anyone interested in running the race in 2020 will need to enter the lottery during that window. If your name is not drawn, your credit card will not be charged.
The Waldo 100K Ultramarathon is a challenging 100K loop-type course starting at Willamette Pass Ski Area (70 miles east of Eugene, Oregon) at elevation 5120', climbing up several mountains including Fuji, The Twins, and Maiden Peak before returning to the ski area. The route is mostly single-track trails with some fairly remote sections and has many incredible views of pristine Waldo Lake. It is not a beginner-level ultra and we recommend coming into the race with experience.
There is free camping for Friday and Saturday nights at the Willamette Pass Ski Resort (location of the start/finish). In conjunction with our race briefing on Friday evening, we will also be serving a pre-race spaghetti dinner at the pass. All of the proceeds from the dinner go to the Willamette Pass Ski Patrol (suggested donated $10).
Post Race Festivities
This race is a fundraiser for the Willamette Pass Ski Patrol, a group who are instrumental in the success of the race (most of the volunteers you will see are associated with the ski patrol). We want to encourage runners to stick around after their race and cheer on their fellow runners! We will have a free taco bar, local craft beer, plenty of non alcoholic drinks, and music. The post race festivities are free for everyone, so bring the whole family!
