2016 Lottery Drawing Update: There were 311 applicants of which 22 were automatics. We drew 153 from the remaining 289 applicants for a total of 175 entrants. Each had a 53% chance of being selected. Congrats to those selected and thanks to everybody who applied.
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 participation in the race should not be taken lightly.
The lottery application period will be open from February 15 until February 24, 2016. We will have an old school manual lottery drawing on March 1. There is no fee to enter the lottery.
Local time: 7:00 AM
Refunds. If you are selected but can’t run the race we will refund $100 of your entry fee if you withdraw by July 1.
Transfers and Rollovers. We do not allow transfers or rollovers of your entry if you are selected. Please don’t ask.
