Welcome to Go Beyond Racing’s newest trail ultra – the Wy’east Wonder! This 50-miler and 50K is possibly our most scenic race yet and will introduce you to trails you’ll want to return to again and again.
The point-to-point race is run mostly on two ridges; Gunsight Ridge and Surveyor’s Ridge. You will have so many views of Wy’east (the Multnomah Tribe word for Mt. Hood) as you make your way from it’s southern side around to the east, that you may actually get tired of looking at it. We promise we’ll take your breath away, and it won’t be from only running. The 50M route has 6,400′ of elevation gain. The 50K has 3,700 of gain.
June 2018 – date to be announced when permit is approved.
The race starts at Bennett Pass Sno Park and finishes at the Oak Ridge trailhead, right near Parkdale, Oregon. The post-race party is just a short shuttle ride away at the Red Barn Park in Parkdale. There is no racer or spectator parking at either the start or the finish so all racers, volunteers and spectators will park at the Red Barn Park in Parkdale. Runners will board shuttles to get to the starting line. Shuttles will bring racers back to the park when they finish.
The park is the location for the bib pickup and the post-race party. Parkdale is a 22-minute drive south of Hood River, on Highway 35.
Details for each course will be revealed when the permit is approved.
The race is 16 miles south of Hood River, Oregon.
From Portland (1.25 hours):

When you finish, you will take a shuttle back to the Red Barn Park where you picked up your bib. There we’ll feed and rehydrate you. We’ll have an awards ceremony where the top three male and female finishers from each distance will receive great prizes from our sponsors. We will also hand out three-deep age-group awards and have raffle prizes.
