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.
