A walk in the park for some or a great time deep in the Oregon Coast Range at Alsea Falls just prior to Halloween! The 1/2 Marathon will take you through a lush canopy with close to 1900 ft of vertical as you make your loop. The 10K takes you on part of the "Hell" without quite as much commitment and 960 total elevation gain. Map is online so no matter what level of runner you are, prepare for a great time.
