TrailFactor 50k + Half + 5-Miler!

5-Mile Race Added to Day’s Events

PORTLAND, OR – January 2, 2013 – The second annual TrailFactor 50K and Half Marathon trail races are returning to Forest Park on Memorial Day 2013.

Race Website & Registration

All the awesome details:
The 50K is the only ultra in the Portland area and is run entirely on trails in Forest Park, including several of the lesser traveled trails deep in the park. The Half Marathon course is improved for 2013 to feature more trails. And new this year is the addition of a 5-mile race. The races start and finish in Lower Macleay Park.

Registration for all three races is now open. The races support the Forest Park Conservancy. Last year TrailFactor donated $2,500 to the Conservancy.

The event embodies the ultrarunning community spirit and has a casual atmosphere and includes a post-race BBQ, with beer from race sponsor Lucky Lab.

Live results for all racers will be available on

Volunteering at the TrailFactor race is a great way for those not ready to run a 50K but who are interested in ultrarunning to learn about the sport.

“We’re excited about the addition of the 5-mile course to the 2013 race,” stated race co-director Renee Seker. “And Forest Park is a beautiful place that TrailFactor runs in every week, so it’s fantastic to put on a race there that benefits the park.


TrailFactorPDX is Portland's best, largest, most awesome trail running club.

We have set weekly runs, and often plan weekend adventures. We like to celebrate with beers afterwards!
