Hoyt Arboretum, 4000 SW Fairview Blvd. Portland, OR 97221 (Overflow parking at the Zoo)

Note: This will be the final year for the 100m.

The team that brought you the biggest and best ever Mt. Hood PCT 50/50 last July is off with another new grand adventure! This time, we will forgo the dry dusty conditions present on the mountain, and give you great slogging through the mud action !

Mark your calendars for the last Saturday in March (25th), forgoing the basketball madness for this romp on Wildwood Trail. We have got one destined for greatness!

From Hoyt Arboretum, you will charge over the hill to the start of 30.14 miles of Wildwood Trail, out to Newberry Road and return for the fastest 100k trail run around. Plan for either a 50k or 100k PR! Others will bus to the 50k start at Newberry Road and accost the really long distance runners in motion, while those just shaking off the winter blahs are confined to their 13.1 mile effort! All distances have been wheeled for accuracy, and clearly signed for convenience and direction.
