Welcome to Oregon's newest and arguably the most scenic 100mile trail race - Old Cascadia 100. This 100miler will be an instant classic with majestic views of the highest peaks in Oregon from Mt Hood to the north and the Three Sisters to the South, to summiting some of the oldest summits in Oregon, to passing old growth stands and stream crossings all the while running on some of Oregon's best and "rediscovered" single-track. The race has 25000ft of gain and 25000ft of loss with 90% of the course on single-track trail, 3% two-track, 4% paved road and 3% dirt road. There are 13 fully stocked aid stations. One will run the course 2x.
Each aid station will have the following: PBJ, Skout bars, Muir Energy pouches, Tailwind electrolyte drink, water, coke, sprite, ginger ale, chips, cookies, 1-2 hot items (broth, soup, quesadillas, pancakes), etc.

If your day is not going as planned and you need to drop, please
do so at an aid station. Remember this course is remote and you may be sitting at an aid station waiting on a ride out! You will also need to come to the finish and inform a race director or timing.
