About the WP50:
The White Pine 50 Backcountry Run will take you on an adventurous looped-course through beautiful Upper Logan Canyon in Northern Utah. We'll start and end at Beaver Mountain Ski Area, and follow some of the legendary Bear 100 course along the way.
For those who enjoy fishing while they run we'll have a special prize for Fish Slapping the WP50! Keep reading for more details. Please see the Runner's Guide here.
Course Description (UPDATED 1/8/23):
NOTE: Beaver Mt. will be under construction during the summer season of 2023. At this point they can still host our Start/Finish line, although we may have to provide our own power and water. You can check out the map and elevation profile here. A GPS file is downloadable by selecting the "Export" icon in the upper-left portion of the screen.
Please see our snazzy new Runner's Guide with the full course description here.
Also please pay special attention to the notes regarding course marking and hydration along the course.
What is Fish Slapping? Check it out here. Lucky fish-runners (Fish + Run = FUN!) will be eligible for special prizes! See the Runners Guide for more information.
Camping & Lodging (UPDATED 8/1/2023):
At this point it looks like we can camp in the upper parking lot (near the yurt) at Beaver Mt. for $15/night. Beaver has asked the race to collect and regulate this. Unfortunately the showers and flush toilets will be closed due to the construction.
Free, dispersed camping is often available along the nearby Beaver Creek and Franklin Basin Roads. Area campgrounds run by the USFS include Sunrise (Bear Lake Overlook), Lewis Turner and Tony Grove.
If camping isn't your thing, check out Beaver Creek Lodge less than a mile from the start line. Garden City and Logan have many options as well.
