The 50k is two loops of the 25k course which covers nearly all of the cool trails in Beacon Rock State Park including Hardy Ridge, Hardy Creek and Hamilton Mountain. From Hamilton Mountain the runners will be treated to great views of the Columbia River Gorge and the surrounding Cascade Mountains including Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams. The 25k (3700ft of elevation gain) has two big climbs, Hardy (mostly gradual) and Hamilton (mostly steep) and two long gradual downhills. The 50k (7500ft of elevation gain) does both climbs and downhills twice. The trails, except when they're on the steep uphills, are for the most part very runnable and are in really good condition. There's a tiny bit of pavement at the begining and end of each 25k loop.

We'll hang out at the finish line lying in the sun-warmed grass, drinking tasty beverages, eating yummy hot food, listening to live music and maybe we'll have some random drawing door prizes.
