The Smith Rock Ascent races have become so popular, and it is easy to see why. You get to spend the weekend at one of the most scenic places in Oregon – Smith Rock State Park. Beginning in 2019, the event spans the whole weekend, with a 50K on Saturday and the 15-Mile and 4-Mile races on Sunday. There are kids fun runs on both days. There’s a trail race distance for everyone.
The trails in and around the state park provide stunning views of the rock faces where you’ll see climbers scaling the tall walls, as well as vistas of the Three Sisters and Mt. Jefferson. You’ll get up high in all three races, where you see the grasslands around you. This race is a treat for your eyes, and for your legs.
