Created by the legendary Ann Trason, the Overlook Endurance Runs primarily follow the historic Western States trail. Both races have different starting locations but, they finish at the same place: Overlook Park in Auburn. 

The 50M/50K start at the Old Elementary School in the historic town of Foresthill, then descends down the Cal loop to Rucky Chucky and continues along the Middle Fork of the American River on the Tevis Cup and Western States trails before crossing the river at Poverty Bar. The 50K continues on Quarry Rd then across No Hands Bridge, and finishing in Auburn at the American River Canyon Overlook Park (Auburn Dam Overlook). The 50mi will head up dead Truck to the WS Trail, past ALT to Brown's Bar, drop down to Quarry across Hwy 49. From there it is up to Cool, down the Coffer loop, to the infamous K2 training hill descent to rejoin the other distances at No Hands.
