2021

September 25 - Half

September 26 - 50K

Welcome to Three Sisters Skyline. Stunning courses with amazing views of the Three Sisters and other high Cascade peaks of Oregon. The 50K takes you to the edge of the Three Sisters Wilderness, running amongst Ponderosa Pines, remnants of a forest fire that occurred in 2012 where regrowth is occurring, alpine meadows and a picturesque mountain stream. The half marathon is a point to point race that has a net downhill which should result in fast times! Bring your furry friend (dog) with you to run in the half marathon! Both races will finish right in the heart of Central Oregon's idyllic mountain town - Sisters. The 50K is worth 2 points towards UTMB.
