Welcome to The Burn, Daybreak Racing's oldest event. The 100 Mile race is on Saturday, April 30 through Sunday, May 1, 2022 and the 50K race on Saturday, April 23, 2022. Both races start and finish at historic Reehers Camp (a former CCC camp) in the lush and rugged Tillamook State Forest, halfway between Portland and the Oregon Coast. Prepare for rumbling waterfalls, brisk stream crossings and a million shades of green, as brilliant foliage, ferns and blossoms line every inch of the course.

The mountainous, temperate Tillamook Rainforest in Northwestern Oregon is steeped in history, most notably, the legendary “Tillamook Burn” forest fires that consumed 355,000 acres of colossal old growth forest from 1933-1951. One of the largest tree replanting campaigns in human history led to the formation of the Tillamook State Forest in 1974. Today, a lush second-growth forest thrives here, offering dozens of miles of exceptional single-track trails for us to enjoy, while showcasing hundreds of massive, emblematic “grey ghost” snags and charred stumps-- enduring relics of the vast old growth rainforest that reigned here prior to the Tillamook Burn. 

The Tillamook Burn 100 miler is a springtime gem, offering an incredible early season mountain 100 miler in the Pacific NW. The format is mostly out and back with two loop-style segments. The course is very accessible for crew, making this a wonderfully social and well-supported race. 

The route straddles the Oregon Coast Range mountain divide starting from Reehers Camp down to the Hwy 6 recreation corridor and back, involving 21,000 ft. of ascent and 21,000 ft. of descent. There are 15 aid stations along the course and a 34 hour overall time limit. 

The Tillamook Burn 50K is a beautifully tough, heavily forested out-and-back course, run almost entirely on singletrack trail. The route traverses the Oregon Coast Range mountain divide from Reehers Camp to University Falls and back, involving 31.8 miles, 7000 ft. of ascent and 7000 ft. of descent. There are 5 full aid stations along the course and a generous 9 hour time limit.
