200 runners. 31 miles. 31 years. One river.

Welcome to the home of the McKenzie River Trail Run, Oregon's oldest ultra, run annually since 1988. Tracing a route along the beautiful McKenzie River, with two spectacular waterfalls, a lake so pristine it's called Clear Lake, lava flows, old growth forest, numerous log bridges and the aquamarine-colored Tamolitch pool where the the river flows from an underground lava tube, the McKenzie River Trail is one of the prettiest trails in America. The race offers runners a technically challenging course with only moderate elevation gains and the inspiration of some of Oregon's most breathtaking scenery.
