Welcome to the Tillamook Burn, Daybreak Racing's oldest event. The 100 Mile race is on Saturday, April 30 to Sunday, May 1, 2022 and the 50K race on Saturday, April 23, 2022. Both races start and finish at historic Reehers Camp (a former CCC camp) in the lush and rugged Tillamook State Forest, halfway between Portland and the Oregon Coast. Prepare for rumbling waterfalls, brisk stream crossings and a million shades of green, as brilliant foliage, ferns and blossoms line every inch of the course.
Each race is capped at 200 participants. A waitlist will open once the participant limit has been reached.
50K - April 23
The Tillamook Burn 50K is a beautifully tough, heavily forested out-and-back course, run almost entirely on singletrack trail. It will be held Saturday April 23, 2022 (the weekend before the 100 miler). The route traverses the Oregon Coast Range mountain divide from Reehers Camp to University Falls and back, involving 31.8 miles, 7000 ft. of ascent and 7000 ft. of descent. There are 5 full aid stations along the course and a generous 9 hour time limit.
100 Miler - April 30 & May 1
The Tillamook Burn 100 miler is a springtime gem, offering an incredible early season mountain 100 miler in the Pacific NW on April 30th & May 1st. The format is mostly out and back with two loop-style segments. The course is very accessible for crew, making this a wonderfully social and well-supported race.
The route straddles the Oregon Coast Range mountain divide starting from Reehers Camp down to the Hwy 6 recreation corridor and back, involving 21,000 ft. of ascent and 21,000 ft. of descent. There are 15 aid stations along the course and a 34 hour overall time limit.
The mountainous, temperate Tillamook Rainforest in Northwestern Oregon is steeped in history, most notably, the legendary “Tillamook Burn” forest fires that consumed 355,000 acres of colossal old growth forest from 1933-1951. One of the largest tree replanting campaigns in human history led to the formation of the Tillamook State Forest in 1974. Today, a lush second-growth forest thrives here, offering dozens of miles of exceptional single-track trails for us to enjoy, while showcasing hundreds of massive, emblematic “grey ghost” snags and charred stumps-- enduring relics of the vast old growth rainforest that reigned here prior to the Tillamook Burn.
All 100 mile race entrants shall contribute 8 hours at any organized trail work party local to them or elsewhere. Dates of completion shall be between August 1, 2021 and April 1, 2022. A verification form will be posted to the race website. We will host a few work parties over the winter and spring that can fulfill this requirement, and we would love your participation-- dates and locations TBA.
