Ochoco 100K/50K Trail Runs

Ochoco Trail RunsThe Ochoco Trail Runs offer spectacular views of the Cascade Range. The trail winds through mixed conifer forest, old growth ponderosa pine, and many open meadows. During the Spring and Summer months there is an abundance of wildflowers in the meadows along the course. Wildlife include wild horses, elk, deer, and coyotes. All of the races start and finish at Walton Sno Park.

The course begins with a gentle downhill on a nice dirt road as you head out of Walton Sno park. After 2.8 miles you will veer off onto rolling single track. You will come to Spring Aid Station (AS #1) at mile 5.3. From there, you will begin a 1400 foot descent over 3.8 miles. The course then hits a dirt road for about 1 mile on your way to Ochoco Creek Aid Station (AS #2) -the lowest point on the course.

Leaving AS #2, you begin your climb to the Lookout Mountain Summit gaining 3000ft in 7.8 miles. This section is entirely single track passing several meadows and incredible views of the Cascades in the distance. As you near the summit the trail gets more rocky and technical. Once you are on top of Lookout Mountain take moment to enjoy the view! You will make your way to Lookout Mountain Shelter Aid Station (AS #3).

After refueling at Lookout Mtn Shelter AS, you begin your descent of1400 ft over the next 3.7 miles to Upper Lookout Mountain Trailhead Aid Station (AS#4). From AS #4 you will start making your way to the summit of Round Mountain over the next 4.6 miles to Round Mountain Aid Station (AS #5). The trail descends steeply then levels off to rolling terrain over the next 5 miles on your way to the finish at Walton Sno Park.

The 2017 High Cascades 100

The High Cascades 100 is a Central Oregon MTB race like no other!

Mud Slinger EventsIt challenges elite pro racers and hard core weekend chargers alike to cover 100 miles of amazing Central Oregon single track — and climb around 8,000′ in the process.

The course changes each year and will be posted on their website as race day gets closer.

Top pros will finish in under 8 hours duking it out the whole way, and it’s not uncommon for the last finisher to arrive at sunset around the 15 hour mark.

Now, a race like this is not to be taken lightly. As their website FAQ says: “Most likely injury: Collarbone followed by laceration.” If that sounds hard core (and it is), consider volunteering. Helping the athletes who compete in this race at aid stations, at the start, or at the finish is a fun experience — and something that feels great to be a part of. Contact the HC100 Volunteer Coordinator for more info.

Learn more about The High Cascades 100 at their website.
