NOTES (7/22): The Jack Fire is burning in the area of the 50K course. It has not reached the course but the work to fight the fire has closed some of the area we’d use for the 50K start. We are working with the Forest Service on an alternate starting line for the 50K and course modification (the 17M is unaffected) and will update this site with the details. The race is happening!
(8/13): 50K route modified to accommodate closure due to Jack Fire. See new route and course information here.
The NUT 50K & 17M trail races are point-to-point UPHILL courses run almost entirely along the beautiful North Umpqua River in the Umpqua National Forest in Oregon. The 17M starts at Toketee Lake and finishes at Lemolo Lake. The 50K starts near the Marsters Bridge and also finishes at Lemolo Lake.
The trail winds alongside the gorgeous North Umpqua River, beside old-growth forest Douglas Fir, Hemlock and Sugar Pine, with trees more than 800 hundred years old. You’ll run through the beautiful Dread & Terror portion of the North Umpqua River trail, pass moss-covered rock bluffs and fern-covered hillsides, and travel through lush forest with several waterfalls. Both are challenging courses, described as “brutiful”.

The 50K & 17M start is at Toketee Lake. There is NO parking at the start for runners or crew due to limited space. Runners will park at the finish, at Lemolo Lake, and take a shuttle to the start. The shuttles will leave Lemolo Lake at 6:45 a.m.
Optionally, runners can be dropped off at the start. There is no parking for vehicles at the start lines, so it is a drop-off situation only.
Runners can park race morning at Lemolo Lake KOA. Volunteers will direct you to where you can and cannot park. There is no overnight parking. This parking is for those arriving race morning to board the shuttle.
There is not a shuttle from the finish line so either park at the finish and shuttle to the start, or have plans for a ride when you are done.
We HIGHLY ENCOURAGE CARPOOLING!
If you are interested in carpooling, you can post here to find or give a ride. This is a Google spreadsheet that is viewable to anyone with the link, so only post what you want public. Carpooling earns you a Carpool Coaster too!
There is no sleeping in your car in the parking lots at Lemolo Lake KOA.
We do have a few rules that apply to all Go Beyond Racing races. Be sure you are familiar with them.
