A brand-new distance to the Elk-Kings race – the Mountain Marathon! And you thought the 25K was a steep and technical course. With this 27.5 mile race you’ll go up the backside of Elk Mountain, over to King’s summit, down and back up to the Elk summit before heading back over to King’s and then the finish. That’s 8,000 feet of gain!
The 25K race is a very steep and technical course run on single-track trails in the Tillamook State Forest. Runners will summit two mountains – Elk and Kings Mountains – and involve ~5800 feet of gain. This Tillamook forest race is a tough, but you are up for it!
The 50K, is less technical but run on single-track trails all along the Wilson River Trail and has 6500 feet of gain. It is a double out and back.
Please note that there are no transfers to other runners. If you need to cancel your registration and it’s more than 30 days prior to the race, you will receive a 50% credit toward a future Go Beyond Racing race. If your cancellation is 30 days or less from race day, there is no credit, no refund, or no transfer. See our cancellation policy for details.
