Cape Mountain Trail Runs Saturday June 1, 2024, and Sunday June 2, 2024.
Event Overview
Welcome to the Cape Mountain Trail Runs! These 50K, 25K and 10K loop courses soar high above the Pacific Ocean on one of the Oregon Coast’s defining headlands, Cape Mountain. Just 15 minutes north of Florence, the mountain’s hidden gem trail network offers miles and miles of exceptional single track through moss-draped old growth rainforest, enchanting creek canyons, and rare coastal headland meadows.
Since 2003, this special event has been a local fundraiser for the Siuslaw High School Cross Country program in Florence and we are proud to continue supporting them as the event’s beneficiary.
