We went out to Black Butte Lake yesterday (4/4/19) for our pre-race meeting with the Rangers.
After discussing with them the extremely wet weather this year, and looking at the trails, we have chose to modify the 10K course. There are some major erosion and safety concerns on back portions of the 10K trail, and for the safety of the volunteers and participants, we don't think that it is safe to use this year.
So...for 2019, the 10Ker's will complete 2 laps of the 5K course.

We apologize for this change, but we feel that it's in the best of interest of safety for everyone involved. Hopefully we'll be back to the normal 10K course for next year!

  • Challenging trails with beautiful scenery
  • Custom finishers medal for 1st 100 finishers
