The fifth annual Twin Peaks Trail Runs is on!
Twin Peaks Trail Runs
Join us for the fifth annual Twin Peaks Trail Runs in beautiful Forest Park on Saturday, October 21, 2023! Fall in Forest Park is a magical place to experience, so we relish the chance to showcase these amazing trails with four different race distances, our amazing running community, and post-race food and fun!
Woodlands Running Co. was born of and grown by the incredible Southern Oregon running community and Twin Peaks Trail Runs belongs to ALL of us that had a vision of a homegrown, inclusive, fun race on some of our favorite trails in Jacksonville. We're so grateful to share in this realization of that dream together. Due to popular demand, the 50k distance is BACK for 2023! The 50k racers will complete two loops of the 25k course. This means twice as much fun, twice as much vert, and an exclusive finishers award for all 50k finishers. T-shirts are included with this years entry fee, but cut-off for ordering a shirt will be September 21, so don't delay!
Event's current local time: 1:02 AM PT

Start/Finish Area: Parking Lot 2 will also serve as the start/finish area. Look for the vendor tents and start/finish arch. We will have porta-potties available near this area.
Awards/Prizes: Top 3 men and women from each race will receive awards. We will also be giving out a bunch of other prizes thanks to Jackson County Physical Therapy, Rogue Valley Runners, Hoka, Woodlands Running Co. gear, and more!

Aid station 1 (TP Saddle) will be water and Tailwind only aid station. Aid Station 2 (P7) and Aid Station 3 (P6) will be full-service aid stations with water, Tailwind, and all your favorite race day snacks. Sticking with the Twin Peaks and 80's vibe, be on the lookout for some '80s themed specialty items :)
Course Markings: We will be using 3 different color ribbons for the 3 races. Pink for the 25k, yellow for the 10k, and blue for the 5k. There will also be white pin flags at major intersections as well as signs keeping you moving in the right direction.
Post Race Party: Stick around post-race food and fun! You'll also have a chance to chat with some of our vendor partners and check out some Twin Peaks and Woodlands Running Co. merch.
Volunteers: These events aren't possible without a rad crew of volunteers. We're so thankful for all the volunteer help throughout the planning process as well as race day. Make sure to give these fine folks a big thank you, high five, or sweaty hug.
