New in 2023
This year we have decided to remove the 50M option. We are moving the start/finish line (just finish line for the 50k) to the Curry County Fairgrounds, right next door to the Pacific Reef where the race has been held in the past. We are also starting the 100k an hour earlier to extend the cutoff to 18hrs.
Secret Beach 100K/50K is a one of a kind ultra event that takes place on the beautiful, and rugged southern Oregon Coast! Participants will run along this stunning coast line through sand, single track trails, and some road, a little bit of everything! Be sure to bring your camera, because non stop views await!
The 100K is an out and back that runs from the beach in the center of Gold Beach, south along the Oregon Coast Trail, to House Rock Viewpoint, and back. It starts at 6AM, has 12,400 ft. of elevation gain, and the cutoff time is 18hrs. The 50K is a point to point, starting at House Rock Viewpoint, and ending in Gold Beach. It starts at 9AM, has 6,000 ft. of elevation gain, and the cutoff time is 10hrs. While the elevation profiles may make these races seem somewhat "easy", please know that this course runs on the slow side. The climbs are short, but they are often steep, and some of the single track can be rough, and technical. The sand on the beaches can be very soft, and the headwinds can be quite challenging. We will try our best to have the original course on race day, but sometimes mother nature is unpredictable, and we have had to reroute in the past due to high tides, and high river crossings.
