A trail half and 10k that will explore the forest of Central Oregon at one of the best times of year. Fall color should be in all it's glory and treat runners to a trail run to be remembered. The course is a mix of double track, single track, and a smidgen of horse trail. Lot's of ups and downs to keep things interesting with lots of passing options on the most significant climbs.
Post race fun will include craft beer from Deschutes Brewery, great food, music, and hopefully some nice weather to hang out in on the Seventh Mtn Resorts comfy lawn.
