America’s Toughest 100 Mile Mountain Bike Race
100 Miles – 50% Singletrack – 18,000 ft. of Climbing

Marathon

Course Description: Billed as the toughest 100 mile MTB race, it boasts 18,000 feet of climbing, with more than 50% singletrack. Entry is limited to 100 participants, which is mostly done to limit the impact on the local trails but also done to keep the event manageable. It also gives it a family feeling that includes the racers and the volunteers.

The race consists of three laps that is approximately 33.5 miles long with 6,000 feet gain in vertical elevation. It starts out with a 17 mile climb on gravel roads, which then leads you onto a 2.5-3 mile climb on singletrack. The top of Sourgrass Mountain is at 4,700ft, which marks the top of the climb, but the climbing not quite over – racers still see another 3-4 miles of climbing on the descent. The singletrack is a fast, twisty trail that can see speeds upwards of 30mph, but be warned – one mistake will see you sailing over the edge, dropping 100-400ft off the bank – that’s if you don’t hit a tree first.

  • If you raced in the Cascade Cream Puff in the year 2007 registration will open up to you on Tuesday, January 8th.
  • If you did not race in the Cascade Cream Puff in 2007 registration will open on Tuesday, January 22nd.
