Coyote Wall 50k & 25k Trail Races (November 2nd & 3rd, 2019)
Wonderland Running is very excited to announce the first running of two beautiful, challenging, new trail races in the iconic Columbia River Gorge: The Coyote Wall 50K and 25K!
Local time: 7:53 AM
The 50K will take place Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 and the 25K on Sunday, November 3rd, 2019. The 50K has 7,300’ feet of climb, while the 25K features 4,300’ of climb, all on breathtaking trails with sweeping vistas. The races are grand and thoughtfully crafted tours of this unique Cascade rainshadow ecosystem, with minimal amounts of repeated trails. Mount Hood’s imposing volcanic pyramid looms large over much of the course, while other parts of the course flow between Douglas fir forest, oak savanna, and grasslands with seemingly endless viewscapes of the Columbia River Gorge.
This is a rugged, sometimes technical, and fairly steep course that will challenge even the most seasoned trail runners. Due to steep climbs and technical terrain, this 50k is not considered a beginner’s course, and runners are therefore strongly encouraged to have prior ultramarathon experience.. However, with a 9½ hour cutoff for the 50K and a 5 hours for the 25K, adequately prepared trail runners of all speeds will be able to finish.
Mark your calendars for what promises to be a magical and memorable trail running weekend in our beloved Columbia River Gorge! I hope to see you in November !!!!!
