Pine Hollow Half Marathon


& Coyote 4-Mile

June 3, 2018

9:00am at Pine Hollow Lakeside Resort

34 N Mariposa Dr, Tygh Valley, OR 97063

The hidden gem of Mt Hood's eastern watershed, Pine Hollow offers a seclusive outdoor oasis within south Wasco's desert plateau. The Pine Hollow Half Marathon & Coyote 4-Mile, along with X-Dog's Pine Hollow Paddle, invite you to take part in the Pine Hollow Experience the first full weekend of June.

The Coyote -Mile is an on-road/off-road loop adjacent to Pine Hollow Reservoir on dirt path, gravel road, and trail. The Pine Hollow Half Marathon uses this same course, plus a 9.1-mile road course of scenic, gentle rollers looping around the entire area.

Both events finish lakeside, near the start, at the Pine Hollow campground. Camping is available for Friday and Saturday night, which is recommended for ose who want to join in on Saturday's Pine Hollow Paddle, Oregon's largest Stand-Up Paddle race, and/or the post-race celebrations.

Call Frank for availability of cabin rentals, RV hookups, and tent camping at 541.544.2271. And check out xdogevents.com for more info on the Pine Hollow Paddle!

Timberline Mt Run


5-mile Race

2.5-mile Challenge

August 12, 2018

10am at Timberline Lodge

27500 E Timberline Road

Government Camp, OR 97028

Our flagship event is a true mountain run, which is a timed footrace on trail with 2000 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 right.

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. 

At this 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 playground surrounding Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood, Oregon's highest peak, the course is extremely scenic and fun just to complete, especially 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!



Multnomah Falls Trail Run


5.9-mile Race at 9:00am


5.9-mile Walk at 8:00am

September 30, 2018

Wahkeena Falls Picnic Shelter

across from Wahkeena Falls Trailhead

at Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway

Our course, the Wahkeena Falls Trail / Larch Mt Trail loop, is the crown jewel of the Columbia River Gorge, featuring Multnomah Falls, Ecola, Wiesendanger, Fairy, and Wahkeena Falls.

The lower sections of the course are paved trail, and the rest is on a range of smooth to technical trail of soft sod, hard-pack dirt, and rock. The lowest point is about 30 feet above sea level, and the course involves steep inclines, reaching heights of 1800 feet.

This race hosts the original Superhero Competition, where the first male and female finisher wearing a superhero costume wins a special prize. In addition, there are also overall and age-group awards, plus Eric's celebrated tortilla soup.

From I-84 eastbound, take Bridal Veil Exit #28. Go left at the stop sign, east along the Historic Columbia River Highway toward Multnomah Falls. Reach Wahkeena Falls after three miles, and turn left into the picnic area to park. From Hood River and The Dalles, heading west on I-84 toward Portland, take Ainsworth State Park Exit #35. Continue west on the Columbia River Highway for approximately five miles, a half mile beyond Multnomah Falls Lodge to reach Wahkeena Falls.Turn into the picnic area on your right to park.
