While clearing out my inbox a few days ago I noticed an email with the title Mt. Hood 50 from Go Beyond Racing.
I grew up in the shadow of Mt. Hood on the east side of Portland. I love that mountain, the PCT trail and have family in Oregon still that we love to visit. I got excited thinking about running in the lush rainforest with views of Mt. Hood. We were planning a trip out to Oregon this summer anyway and Cory agreed that July seemed like I fine time to go.
I mean…it’s kind of pretty 😉
I was pretty bummed when I went to go check out registration and the 50 miler was only open as a lottery. I have no idea of the entry rate, but I will find out on January 11th if I am in or not.
After the lottery registration for the 50k opens up with no lottery so that is worth considering if I don’t get in….
Please keep your fingers crossed for me!
Ever entered a lottery for a race?
