4th annual S.O.F.A 50k

It just so happens that a lot of Oregon ultrarunners celebrate their birthday on the same weekend in January. To add injury to insult, the southern oregon fat ass has become an anuual right of passage. Tim Turk will be having a "milestone" birthday, then we have Craig Thornley, Jeff Riley, Marcus Mayfield, Clayton Gillette and new Oregonian Hal Koerner all celebrating on the same weekend. The plan is to run the Wild and Scenic Rogue River trail till we have our fill of "fun" or 32 mies which ever comes first. We'll leave Graves creek about 9AM on Saturday, January 20th and run out-n-back for a total of about 50k. Remember, out-n-back means you can cut it short or make it long. Last year we had a record 27 runners! We hope to see you there!

This is a self-supported run that crosses countless streams that many of us have drunk from for years without incident. Do I need to mention rain, after all this is Oregon, right? Oh yeah, poison oak too.

From the north, take the Wolf Creek exit #76 to the Graves Creek trailhead.

From the South, take the Merlin exit #61 and do the same.
