A steep and technical course run on single-track trails in the Tillamook State Forest. In this short 15 mile race, runners will summit two mountains – Elk and Kings – and involve ~5800 ft of gain. There are a number of sections requiring small scrambles as well as very steep descents on rocky – and sometimes muddy (= slick) trails. This is NOT your typical 15 mile trail race. We recommend you run the course prior to race day to give you an understanding what this course will throw at you.
