Join us on July 28, 2018 high above the Rogue Valley for the 20th annual Siskiyou Out Back Trail Run (The SOB)! We have three luscious flavors to choose from. Enjoy the full flavor of our 50K. For something less robust but still flavorful try the 15K. Or for those of you that want something truly piquant the 50 Mile distance awaits. Register early as we expect our events to fill quickly again this year. We limit our registration to 275 in the 50K, 300 in the 15K, and 175 in the 50M. Registration in the two longer races (50M/50K) will be limited to runners 18 years or older unless by prior consent by the Race Directors.
Our three runs begin and end at the Mt. Ashland Lodge at an altitude of 6500 feet. From there the courses meander along the Pacific Crest Trail with breathtaking views of Mt. Shasta, Mt McLaughlin, and the Siskiyou and Cascade mountain ranges. The total course elevation for the 50K is about 4200 feet. The 50 mile features about 7000 feet of climbing.
The 50K and 15K have low base rates through March 31, 2018. The 50K registration is $70 and the 15K is $35. The 50M is $110 and includes a cool ceramic finishers mug. 50/50 finishers will also receive a Klean Kanteen 32oz insulated growler. All entries include cowbells to the top three finishers in each age group (for all races!), finisher medallions, rockin’ finisher SWAG (for the longer distances), to say nothing of what you’ll find on the course itself: sweet single track, friendly volunteers, well stocked aid stations, dust, rocks, roots, and plenty of sunshine. Plus the 50M and 50K racers will be treated to a lunch (veggie option!) at the finish line. 15K runners and non-runners can purchase the meal at the finish area, for $10. Additionally, all racers may purchase one of our cool race coffee steins for $25. These options are only available until June 1st. Mt. Ashland Lodge will be serving up a tasty pasta dinner on Friday night for only $10.00. Join us for dinner from 6:00 until 9:00. New this year, will be a trail film festival showing Friday night from 8:00 until 9:00. We encourage camping on the mountain Friday night. We also host a $2 breakfast early Saturday. Details are provided at registration. We sell out all races so register now, however if you are reading this on Thanksgiving, registration opens Sunday November 26th at 12pm. Get goin’!
