Cancelled Event


Race Cancelled

3/28/20: WE ARE CANCELLING THE RACE. We are sadly unable to reschedule the event for 2020.

3/16/20: WE ARE POSTPONING THE RACE. Given the current CDC recommendations on banning events for eight weeks, we are working to reschedule this race. An email was sent to all registered and waitlisted racers and volunteers today. We will send another email with more details and update on the race website when things are a little more solid.

3/14/20: WE ARE CAPPING REGISTRATION AND OPENING A WAIT LIST. The race is still two months away, and so we are not cancelling it at this point. We are planning to have the race, with the expectation of the 250 participants cap per the Governors' recent ban regarding the Coronavirus. If things change, we'll post here.


Whether it is your first trip to Smith Rock State Park, or your hundredth, you will be enamored. You'll see climbers on the rock faces, have views of the Cascade Mountains, and be struck by all the natural beauty of the area.

Spring is the perfect time to race here and you'll enjoy hanging out afterwards, watching other racers finish, while you enjoy your post-race burrito and beer (or hard cider or chocolate milk).


This lollipop style course that involves ~4100 ft of elevation gain has amazing views of the Cascade mountains, the sheer rock faces at Smith Rock State Park and the unique beauty of the grasslands. 75% of the course is on sweet single-track trails. There are four fully stocked aid stations.

This race is on Saturday.

15 Mile

The 15-mile race quickly rises above the dramatic cliffs in one of Oregon’s most scenic state parks. With over 3,000 vertical feet of gain, the route ascends to the top of Gray Butte with panoramic views of central Oregon and the Three Sisters. Then your reward, an almost uninterrupted descent with spectacular views of the sheer rock faces that make Smith Rock State Park a mecca for climbers.

This race is on Sunday

4 Mile

With incredible views, sweet single-track and 830 ft. of gain, this course gives runners a close-up view of Monkey Face, Misery Ridge and beautiful vistas of all sides of the park.

This race is on Sunday.

Go Beyond Racing

This event is produced by Go Beyond Racing. We put on over three dozen trail races a year. You can count on every Go Beyond race to:

- Be highly organized with racer safety and satisfaction as top priorities
- Donate to a worthy beneficiary for each race
- Have well-stocked aid stations and the friendliest, most supportive volunteers
- Challenge and reward each participant
- Put more time, money, and energy than most to reduce, reuse, recycle, and lessen the environmental impact of our events

We look forward to sending you off on the trails and welcoming you across the finish line!
