Elk-Kings Trail Races
Sat September 30 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Tillamook forest races that will challenge and inspire you!
You won’t find a more mountain-like race around. The Elk-Kings Trail Races are rugged, technical, and steep races in the Tillamook Forest — and you will love them!
The 25K course involves 5,800 feet of gain, and the 50K has 75,00 feet of gain since it now also summits both Elk and Kings mountains, just like the 25K always has. You’ll get some long views of the Coast Range, and not just from the summits, but on your way up and down the mountains too. And you’ll also feel like you are deep in the woods when you’re surrounded by some seriously tall ferns.
This Tillamook forest race is a tough, but you are up for it.
Both races finish at the Smith Homestead, near the Tillamook Forest Center. This is where all runners pick up their bibs and where the 50K racers start. The 25K runners take a shuttle to the start near Elk Creek campground.
