Course Information:
50 Miler:
The Tillamook Burn 50 miler is a springtime gem and the perfect kick start to your mountain/ultra/trail running season. It is a deeply forested two-pronged out-and-back course, run almost entirely on singletrack trail. The structure of the course and accessibility for crew also make this a wonderfully social and well-supported race.
