Pine to Palm Registration Now Open

Registration for the 2012 Pine to Palm 100 Mile Endurance Run is officially open.  We only have 300 spots, so you'd better start thinking about it now!

For those of you that missed the announcement that the race will serve as the only 100 miler in the Oregon Trail Series please check it out below.

Pine To Palm 100 Mile Endurance Run has been added to the 2012 OTS schedule.  With the earlier announcement of the addition of Flagline 50K, there are nine races in the series for 2012.  In its third year, Hal Koerner’s Pine to Palm 100 Mile Endurance Run (P2P) is Oregon’s only 100 miler.

P2P is a remote and rugged classic point to point course traversing the Siskiyou Mountain Range in Southern Oregon. Starting in Williams, OR, the course winds its way east to Ashland, OR on a mixture of single track trail, dirt road, with less than four miles of pavement. The course boasts over 20,000 ft of climb and 20,000 ft of loss with three epic climbs to 7,000 ft and fantastic views of Mt Shasta and Mt McLaughlin.  A point to point 100 miler is a tall order to organize and execute, and the OTS RD’s along with the Rogue Valley community, are fully behind Hal and his race.  We hope you are too. Changes to the course are likely but more single track needs to be built in order for this to happen.  If all goes according to the master plan, many of the gravel road sections will be replaced by single track on the PCT in time for the 2012 race.  Stay tuned for details.  Registration opens on Jan 1 at UltraSignup.

Additionally, we will be moving forward with our initiative to include 20 plus additional miles of single-track to this years event.  We will be offering training/trail work weekends during the month of August as well.  Please check bag on this blog for more updates on all the offering.  

Happy New Year everyone!
