This is a fun, low-key event utilizing the Peterson Ridge and Metolius-Windigo multi-use trails near Sisters, Oregon. So, bring a great sense of adventure, and you'll enjoy it! To stay true to the low-key vibe of the event, dogs are allowed in the 20 mile race (sorry, no dogs in the 40 mile). Both races will start and finish at Sisters Middle School. There are two distances in the event: 40 mile and 20 mile options.
The 40 mile is mostly trail with some dirt road sections. The first quarter is gentle uphill, second quarter is gentle downhill, third quarter starts with a gentle up before a couple of long, 2-mile uphill grinders, and the final quarter is gentle downhill (with some sweet views!), making for a fast finish. Mud is very likely, and snowy sections are possible. The 20 mile is gentle uphill for the first half, and gentle downhill for the second half. Upon reaching the ridge, there are beautiful views of many of the Central Oregon Cascades peaks.
