Overview

Welcome to the Smith Rock Classic! Join us for our springtime 50 mile, 50K, and 10 mile races that showcase the beauty of Smith Rock State Park. The towering basalt cliffs and views of the nearby Cascade range await you as you travel in and around the park. The courses also include miles in the Crooked River Grasslands - beyond the boundary of the park - that offer a different view of Oregon's classic high desert terrain as well as the fantastic scenery of the high peaks of the Cascades.

10M

The Smith Rock Classic 10M takes you to the top of Gray Butte for some spectacular views of Smith Rock and the Cascades! The course starts at Skull Hollow and follows single track up to the saddle where you will find Gray Butte aid station at mile 2.8. From the aid station, you'll continue onto the GrayButte trail around Gray Butte until the fun really begins! You will then climb up to the top of Gray Butte before taking the road back down to the saddle and returning via the Cole Loop trail. With 2200 ft of gain/loss, 50% single track, 50% dirt road, and one aid station - this will be an instant classic! 

50M

The 50 mile course covers two 25 mile loops starting and finishing at Skull Hollow. From the start, the course takes you to the saddle below Gray Butte where you'll hit Gray Butte AS 2.6 miles into the race. From there you'll make your way towards Smith Rock State Park descending Burma road to the river. Once you are on Wolf Tree Trail you will follow it until the bridge. The course crosses the bridge and climbs up to Smith Rock AS at mile 7.6. After that AS, you'll descend back to the river taking the River Trail to Summit Trail and eventually back to Gray Butte AS at mile 14.8. After a loop around Gray Butte and out into the grasslands, you'll return to where you started at Skull Hollow to a minimal AS vis the Cole Loop Trail. Loop one is complete! After the first loop, you'll follow the same route a second time. The course consists of 7500ft of gain and loss with 80% single-track trails and 20% gravel road. There are 8 full aid stations and 1 minimal aid station.

50K

The 50K course starts and finishes at Skull Hollow. From the start you will make your way up to the saddle that sits below Gray Butte where you'll hit Gray Butte AS 2.7 miles into the race. From the AS you'll head towards Smith Rock State Park descending Burma Road as you drop down to the river. The course follows Wolf Tree Trail until the bridge where you'll turn right and begin the steep climb up Misery Ridge. Once Misery is tackled, you'll return via the River Trail back to towards the bridge and Smith Rock AS at mile 11. After that AS, you'll head back along the River Trail and climb up Summit Trail returning to the Gray Butte AS at mile 19.3. After a loop around Gray Butte and out into the grasslands, you'll return to the finish at Skull Hollow via Cole Loop Trail.
