Sander and I in the fall of 1995 started figuring out the first McDonald Forest 50KM course. I wasn’t sure how many runners would run this race, maybe 35-40. I knew we could not earn much of a donation for the teams with an ultra of that size, so we decided to add a 15KM race. The 15KM race would take place while the 50KM was in progress. This was the format for the first two years. After two years, both races were too large to organize on the same day. The 50KM is a spring race, on the last Saturday in April that fits in nicely with the Northwest schedule of ultras. The 15KM race is now a fall race during the high school cross country season, the weekend before the state of Oregon high school cross country meet.
