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 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 race will support the Forest Park Conservancy again this year.
All runners must sign in the morning of the race. There is no early start.
