    Celebrating 32 Years

    Much like the past few years, the first trail run was plagued by wildfires and officially canceled by the Forest Service. However, 5 friends (behaving like typical Ultra Runners) decided to run the course anyway and thus began the oldest continuously run ultra marathon in Oregon. For a period of time the run boasted 50 miles to Paradise, ending at the Paradise campground. It later realized that no one wanted to go to Paradise and the run was shortened to 50K.
