5/8 Update: We are expecting we will have to cancel the race, given yesterday’s announcement by Governor Brown. We’ll share more as soon as we have better information.
We ask for feedback after every race, and you told us you wanted a shorter distance at the NUT, so here you go! New for 2020, we’ve added a 17-mile course that gives you some of the best the NUT has to offer. We are keeping the popular and challenging 50K race too. The 100K race is retiring and will not happen in 2020.
The NUT 50K & 17M trail races are point-to-point 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 Umpqa 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”.
Registration in capped due to the Coronavirus pandemic. You can sign up for the wait list (your card is not charged). We will reopen registration and invite people from the wait list when it becomes more clear what will happen with the COVID19 situation.

The 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. This shuttle will leave Lemolo Lake at 8:00 a.m.
The 50K start is near Marsters Bridge. 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 ride a shuttle bus to the race start. The shuttle will leave Lemolo Lake at 6:30 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!
We do have a few rules that apply to all Go Beyond Racing races. Be sure you are familiar with them.
Verizon cell service is excellent at Toketee Lake Campground aid station (crew accessible) and at the finish – Lemolo Lake. Coverage elsewhere is limited or non-existent.
There is poison oak on the course.
