Smith Rock Ascent

Smith Rock State Park

Terrebonne, OR 50K, 15 Miler, 4-Miler

This Event Took Place Sun. May 15, 2022


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

Now with four distances to choose from, and free kids races, everyone can find something to run.

Due to crowding and the [over]popularity of the park, this event is now in March.


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.

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

7.5 Mile

NEW! Not quite ready or interested in running up Gray Butte in the 15-miler, but wanting more than the 4-miler? This is your distance. Seven-and-a-half mile all around the park! You'll follow the river past Monkey Face, up the Summit trail, doowwnnnn Burma Road and back along the river, with 1200' of gain.

This race is on Saturday.

4 Mile

Don't be too fooled by the shorter distance, this course has some serious climbing. Runners go up Misery Ridge and back down past the iconic Monkey Face rock feature.

This race is on Sunday
