ORRC Autumn Leaves 50/50
Autumn Leaves is a 50k and 50 mile race held in the beautiful fall colors along the Willamette River at Oregon's popular Champoeg State Park.
The race will be held on Saturday October 28, 2017

The course is a 10k loop consisting of 80% paved bike path and 20% dirt single track. It is built for speed as the course is very flat with some small rollers for fun.
50k runners will complete 5 loops and the 50 milers will do 8.
Just a heads up about part of our course this year. The wooden bridge at about mile 2 1/2 is undergoing some restoration work and it is currently about the width of a single track trail. Runners can pass in opposite directions but it will be "tight". They have built turn offs to allow areas to allow runners, bikers etc more room in a couple of spots. Once the race thins out this should be a non-event but please give way to runners that are heading back towards the start finish line, those folks will have preference as the outbound runners are on the side of the turnoffs while staying to the right.
50k - Awards for 1st through 3rd for men and women and Masters.
50 mile - Awards for 1st through 3rd for men and women and Masters.
All 50 mile finishers will receive the coveted ORRC Autumn Leaves custom belt buckle.
Since the race is close to Halloween if you feel the spirits move you, we will award two runners for being the best or most creatively dressed.
Each 50k and 50 mile participant will receive our popular ORRC Autumn Leaves technical running shirt at no extra cost.
