The Flagline 50k will be the USATF National Championship for the 50k distance in 2014. If you would like to compete for a national championship category you must have a valid USATF number. You can become a member at www.usatf.org. You do NOT need a number to compete in the race. You only need the number if you wish to be counted in the USATF National Championship scoring. This usually brings out some good competition and shiny medals for the victorious few. A big thank you to Visit Bend for helping make this a championship race once again.
The Flagline Trailfest will host a total of 2 events. 50k and High Alpine Half marathon. All events will finish at the Sunrise lodge at Mt. Bachelor ski area.

Flagline 50k is part of the Oregon Trail Series (OTS) this year. I am very excited to be a part of this very established trail running series. Flagline will serve as the series ending race which could lead to some excitement for the 50k championship.
