    Name: Elkhorn Crest 50 Ultra Marathon
    Date: August 19, 2017
    Event Description:

    The Elkhorn Crest 50 is a 52 mile trail run that will take you along the Elkhorn Mountain ridgeline across sub-alpine forests and grasslands. The trail offers panoramic views of Baker Valley, the Wallowas, and the Blue Mountains. The race has an average elevation of over 7200ft, making it a one-of-a-kind ultra in Oregon. With 11,000 ft of climbing and almost 12,000 ft of loss is packed into 52 miles. The course is a mix of smooth single track as well as rocky, technical sections. While the Elkhorn Crest Trail has minimal elevation change, there are sustained climbs and descents as you veer off the Crest Trail.

    The event is cupless to minimize waste. You may purchase a reusable cup at registration.

    Location:
    The Elkhorn Crest Marathon will start in the old mining town of Bourne Oregon following the same route as the 52 Miler, but continuing on to the finish after Aid Station 3. With a nice climb to/from the crest plus a loop around Summit lake, this marathon will not disappoint! There is roughly 5700 ft of elevation gain and 6300 ft of loss.
