The trails of Forest Park are a real treasure for runners and an opportunity to run a race on them shouldn’t be missed. The only 50K held in Portland, the Stumptown Trail Runs route will include everyone’s favorite – Wildwood Trail – but also some lesser traveled and less well-known paths, with approximately 4,000′ of elevation gain.
The Stumptown Trail Runs half marathon is a fun, challenging and well-supported race that includes beautiful trails and lots of friends and family. These are running events; not walking races.
Both races support the Forest Park Conservancy again this year.
Both races will open as a wait list. This is just in case the event has to be cancelled in 2021. Your credit card is NOT charged when you are placed on the wait list. We will invite runners into the race from the wait list, in order, until reaching capacity beginning in January. Both races are capped at 150 each.

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 full cancellation policy for details.
Saturday, May 29, 2021 – HALF MARATHON
Monday, May 31, 2021 – 50K
There will be changes to the 2021 races, in order to protect racers and volunteers from exposure as much as possible. We will post those details here, closer to the race date so that the information is current and most relevant. The changes will also be included in the pre-race email we send the week prior to the event.
You can expect at the least:
Usually, after you finish Stumptown, we feed and rehydrate you while hang out with friends and family. But for 2021, we will wait to see what the Coronavirus pandemic is doing as the race gets closer to determine what sort of post-race festivities are allowed.
In addition to finisher awards, our top three men and top three women earn prizes from our sponsors, as do the first place male and female masters. And we have age group awards that go three deep!
The race start is a quarter mile up Leif Erikson from the gate at the top of Thurman St. Map.
Parking is on neighborhood streets. Carpooling, taking public transit, or ride share is highly recommended as the parking can get tight and we need to be respectful of the local residents. Do not block driveways.
Given that the park borders private property, there is NO PARKING for spectators at ANY of the aid stations.
We love volunteers and our racers do too! To make this race a success we need people to help at bib pickups, race start and finish, aid stations, and on the trail. You can sign up for the assignment you’d like on Ultrasignup. Click on the green Volunteer button with the heart.
The 50K provides 2 points toward every race of the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® for 2020 (2021 points pending annual re-approval).
We do have a few rules that apply to all Go Beyond Racing races. Be sure you are familiar with them.

We acknowledge that these races occur on the traditional homelands of the Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalai, and Kalapuya Tribes.
Forest Park is a public municipal park in the Tualatin Mountains west of downtown Portland, Oregon, United States. Stretching for more than 8 miles (13 km) on hillsides overlooking the Willamette River, it is one of the country’s largest urban forest reserves. The park, a major component of a regional system of parks and trails, covers more than 5,100 acres (2,064 ha) of mostly second-growth forest with a few patches of old growth. About 70 miles (110 km) of recreational trails, including the Wildwood Trail segment of the city’s 40 Mile Loop system.
