The 30k trail course uses the entire 8k course but adds a trip up to Fitton Green Natural Area for some awesome views, incorporating the Mulkey Ridge connector trail each way. The course will be challenging due to the hills, but the views and nice trails will make your work quite worth the effort.
The scenic 8k trail run consists of challenging hills and flat stretches in Bald Hill Park, with about 1.4 miles of paved path and 3.6 miles of dirt trails. There may be a surprise musical interlude at the top of the hill. Keep your ears open. There will be two aid stations.
The noncompetitive 2mi run/walk will be entirely on paved paths. The ¼ mi. kids run is paved.
Contact us if you are interested in sponsoring the 2019 Run for the Hills.
The overall male and female winners and the top three in each age group will receive awards.
There will be four aid stations on the 30k. All will be serving water and sports drinks. The Fitton Green aid station (passed twice) will also have a buffet of ultra race snacks. Two aid stations will be located on the 8k course serving water and sports drinks.
The finish will be stocked with fresh fruit and other great refreshments.
Most of the trails in the Corvallis area are maintained by volunteers from groups like the Mary's River Chapter of the Sierra Club, the Greenbelt, the Boy Scouts and many others. Proceeds of this event benefit the Greenbelt Land Trust Trail Fund. This fund helps purchase raw materials and equipment used for trail construction and maintenance by the volunteers who keep our trails safe and passable for users. Over $50,000 has been raised in the last ten years. Proceeds have been donated for gravel and supplies to support the City/County/CSC Youth Trail Crew that has worked on our entire trail system.
