27500 E Timberline Road

Our flagship event is a
true mountain run, which is a timed footrace on trail
feet of elevatation gain, all from 6000 to 7000 feet above sea level.
We are currently adjusting the permit with the US Forest Service to
remove the road and lower trail sections, creating a 2.5-mile Challenge
for those who want to jog, walk, or run from Timberline Lodge up to the
top of the Magic Mile and back around, and developing a 5-mile Race
that runs the top portion from right to left, then again from left to
The start will again be in
the parking lot outside Wy'East Lodge, but on the north end, positioned
up the hill, at the beginning of Mountaineer Trail 798. We will run up
the trail and across the front of the Silcox Hut, the upper Magic Mile
Chairlift, and lower Palmer Chairlift, and continue on the trail down,
crossing the Timberline Trail. Just below the Timberline Trail, where
we had an aid station in the past, Mountaineer Trail turns east, toward
Timberline Lodge, and we will stay on this trail, following flags and
cones, until the path near the upper parking lot.
point, those doing the 2.5-mile Challenge will follow directions to the
right, turning down the trail to finish under the Y'Bar Patio, where
our finish line has always been. Those doing the 5-mile Race, however,
follow directions up, taking the path on the west side of Timberline
Lodge up to the Timberline Trail, and then turn left, along the trail,
back to Mountaineer Trail 798. Here, runners will do the upper section
again, but from left to right, finishing down through the path on the
west side of Timberline Lodge, and then down to the Y'Bar Patio,
exactly as we have done in years past.
Featuring the natural
surrounding Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood, Oregon's highest peak, the
course is extremely scenic and fun just to complete,
with Mt Hood
Brewing Company's finest craft beer and the Y'Bar balcony's hot dog bar
overlooking the finish line.
The Timberline Mt Run also
hosts the Mountain Running Team Championships. You don't need to be on
a team to participate in this event, but any team with at least two
people (including at least one female competitor) can sign up for the
team championship at no additional cost. Each team member simply signs
up as an individual, and lists their team name during registration.
Points are weighted toward participation, so the larger your team, the
greater your score!
