Former six-time World Mountain Champion Jonathan Wyatt of New Zealand holds the men's course record at 56 minutes and 41 seconds, set in 2004. The women's record was set in 2010 by Ethiopian runner Shewarge Amare, at one hour, eight minutes and 21 seconds.

Fifty percent of all proceeds from the race will be donated to the Coos County Family Health Services in Berlin.
