Welcome to the Perpetua Coast trail runs, set in the vibrant coastal village of Yachats, Oregon (say YAH-hots) and the Cape Perpetua National Scenic Area! The event features 50K and 20-mile lollipop-loop courses with everything the Oregon Coast has to offer, from cozy beach town charm, rocky shoreline bluffs, sandy beaches, epic headland vistas and moss-draped old growth rainforest.

Since 2014, this event has been hosted as the Oregon Coast trail runs, produced by our friends at Rainshadow Running. We are honored to now take the reins of this scenic and beautiful event into the future!

The 50K offers an incredibly scenic course featuring all the varying terrain the Oregon Coast has to offer, totaling 31.1 miles with 5700’ of climbing and same amount of descending. The course features miles of glorious old growth coastal rainforest trails, a little bit of ocean beach early on, and sweeping coastline views throughout. The scenery, charm and captivating sense of discovery in Yachats and the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area will keep you coming back for years to come
