Join us in April for Salem's newest ultramarathon!
WHAT: 10k, 30k, and 50k footrace through Salem's Minto-Brown Island Park.
WHEN: Saturday, April 20, 2019
Each race begins at 9:00 and runners have 8 hours to complete their race.
WHERE: Minto-Brown Island Park - Salem, Oregon
Race Headquarters will be in the shelter at the very end of the main road to the park. Follow this road until you cannot go further and it dumps you into a parking lot. A map to the parking lot is at the link above.
COURSE: The course consists of two loops that are each about 5 kilometers in length. We have a red loop and a yellow loop with our aid station marking the start/finish of each loop. These loops each consist of roughly 50% pavement and 50% dirt or gravel trails. There are some small hills and some sections of trail that are not super well maintained. Each loop has enough variety to make it so you won't ever be bored by the couse.
Runners will begin on the red loop and alternate with the yellow loop until they have finished the distance they signed up for.
10k runners will run each loop once, 30k runners will run each loop three times, and 50k runners will run each loop five times.
I expect that those accustomed to running 50k races will see this course as friendly and fast. I also expect those who are accustomed to running 10k road races will find this course to be slower than they are used to due to a few tight turns and the potential for some mud.
