Please scroll to the bottom for links to our runner communication sent out for the 2013 race.
What are the dates and times for the 2014 Hagg Lake 50k and 25k?Dates are TBD.
When will registration open?We will open registration in November 2013. If you registered for the 2013 race you will get an email notifying you of when registration will open about a week prior. You can also sign up here to be notified of when registration is open.
Is There an Early Start?We do offer an early start for the 50K, which is at 7a on Saturday. There is no early start for the 25K.
Should I do the Early Start?You should do the early start if you are concerned that you will not be able to finish the 50K by 4 p.m. (finishing one loop by noon). The early start is not intended for people who just want to run early and avoid the crowds or the worst mud, or because you have to leave early. Please don't sign up for the early start if you do not need to do so, given your anticipated time to complete the event.
The above statement sounds pretty straightforward. Unfortunately, in the trail series we have had people abusing the early start. Therefore we are implementing the following rule. If you take an early start the best official time you can get is 6 hours. If you are going run less than 6 hours then don't take the early start.
Can I bring my dog?You can bring your dog to the start/finish area but you cannot run with your dog. You must have taken proper precautions to make sure your dog will be comfortable and safe, and will not interfere with any other participants. We love dogs, but we also love having insurance for our event so please make sure you are being a good dog mom or dad. Once you are done running you may bring your dog to the start/finish area, on a leash at all times; and of course please clean up after them!
How can I register using ORRC bucks?
If you would like to use ORRC bucks to register, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: Name, address, phone, age, shirt size, emergency contact name and number, distance, amount of ORRC bucks to be used
Registrations using ORRC bucks will be accepted beginning when online registration opens. This means, you can email us before online registration opens but your email will not reserve your place. After online registration opens, you can email us, which will hold a spot for you for one week. You will then have one week to mail us your ORRC bucks in order for us to lock in your spot. All ORRC bucks used for registration must be signed by an ORRC RD and be used before their expiration date. You will receive the address to which to send your ORRC bucks when we receive your place-holding email.
Refunds/Entry Transfer?Please read our refund/transfer policy carefully. We do not make exceptions to this policy for any participants. We are volunteer race directors and we have created this policy to make registration and race organization manageable. Thank you for understanding.
If at any time you realize you are not able to use your entry, please notify us by emailing email@example.com. We create a wait list for our races, and by notifying us that you are not going to use your entry, we can allow someone on the wait list to register.
If you register and then are unable to run, you have until January 15, 2014 to notify us as ask for a partial refund. Until that date, we will refund 50% of your registration fees, not including any registration processing fees or postage. After January 15, 2014, we would appreciate it if you let us know if you can not run, however you will not be able to receive any refund.
Transfers are not allowed, because our race has a wait list. Your unused slot will simply be available for the next person on the wait list to register.
How do I get on the wait list if registration is full?
Once registration is full, the registration page will turn into a wait list sign up. Available slots will be offered to people on the wait list to register based on a first come first served basis.
Who puts on the Hagg Lake 50k and 25k?
The Hagg Lake 50k and 25k are put on by Oregon Road Runners Club. The race is 100% volunteer-run, including your race directors.

If you have a iPhone, you can download the nspirelive.com from the App Store (TM) - or you can just look on their mobile site.
