Welcome to the Smith Rock race you’ve been hearing about!

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. There are four distances to choose from: 50K, 15M, 7.5M, and 4M. 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.

Saturday is the 50K, 7.5M, and a Kids Fun Run.
Sunday is the 15M, 4M, and a Kids Fun Run.
