2021 Course Map – (PDF)

A fire burned up a significant stretch of the lower portion of the course, forcing us to create a modified course on the upper section. We have created a course that consists of three out and backs with the start and finish at Carmen reservoir. The first loop goes up to the Santiam aid station and back through Carmen, the second loop is an out and back to Blue Pool, and the third loop is a slightly shorter version of the first loop; up around Clear Lake again. Spectators and private vehicles (not associated with putting on the race) are restricted from accessing Carmen.
