Pine To Palm 100 Mile Endurance Run
2020 Pine to Palm 100 Mile Virtual Run
Beginning September 21th, runners will have the chance to accrue the necessary mileage to complete the distance of the original course by the 4th of October. We are going to ask that participants also tally their elevation gain towards the cumulative climb amounts seen on the course (6,400M) with awards going to the top three individuals with the most recorded over the allotted time.
Each day of the virtual run we will send out a distinctive challenge to the group of entrants, of which you will get to choose to participate in the action and fun. Completed challenges will offer varying prizes; Custom Hydro Flask drinkware, branded sweatshirts, Goodr sunglasses, mileage and elevation coupons to advance your progress, and much more.
We have always believed in the community aspect of this event, without it there would not have been almost ten years of dust, sweat, smiles, tears and finishers. That being said, with the events that took place September 8th, 2020 surrounding the Almeda Fire, thousands of homes were lost in the Rogue Valley and tens of thousands of community members displaced, many of whom have participated, volunteered or crewed at our event. You may have seen or heard about the devastation, but let me assure you the impact is beyond comprehension for most. Pine to Palm 100 and Rogue Valley Runners will be donating $25 of each entry towards the ongoing relief efforts, we will in turn have those funds matched to maximize our efforts. Please know that regardless of your ability to finish the distance, participation in the run will go a long way to helping others recover from one the worst tragedies in Southern Oregon history.
All entrants will receive a Nike Tee upon registration with a unique logo and motto for the special 2020 edition of the race. Finishers of the event will also be awarded a 100% handcrafted custom wood medal from Elevation Culture. There will be numerous prizes given throughout the duration of the run via email, Instagram and FB for milestones and daily challenges.
COVID-19 Update 7/23/2020
The Pine to Palm 100 is a manifestation of the can-do spirit that resides in all those with the ability to run one hundred miles but more-so those who are courageous enough to prepare for such reward through conviction and perseverance. These qualities guide your journey through various efforts, some individual but many of which come at the hands of family, friends, volunteers and staff.
Suffice-it-to-say this event is deeply rooted in the local running community and is intrinsically connected to Oregon and Ultrarunning at large. I have deliberated with our team on how best to honor our commitment through the COVID-19 pandemic, and we have come to the realization that moving forward with the 2020 race would be, at best, a series of guesses based on inconclusive evidence that we could keep everyone involved safe while mitigating great risk. With this in mind, and with a heavy heart, we have decided to cancel the event for 2020.
However, we remain grounded to the cause knowing just how much has been sacrificed. It is our plan to continue to highlight community, and reward healthy competition with a virtual alternative to all those that registered for this year’s event.
Please know this was not an easy decision to make but rather a conceited effort to take responsible action amidst near-utter chaos. There will be an email detailing your options for refund, rollover and/or registration for 2021 in the following week.
