Nestled in the hills above Kenwood, Hood Mountain Regional Park and Sugarloaf Ridge State Park feature amazing scenery and an extensive network of trails to explore. Part of our 'Vertical Challenge' series, this Half Marathon boasts nearly 4,000 ft of gain and tough, grinding climbs. This course is not made for achieving personal best times and will prove to be a challenge for even the most accomplished runners, but what it lacks in speed it will more than make up for in stunning vistas, rugged ground, and elevation gains to assure participants the satisfaction that comes from completing a strenuous day on the trails.
Half-marathon runners will test their mettle with over 3,800 ft of elevation gain around the flanks, and over the summit of Hood Mountain. From there it’s a fun ride back down into the valley where the finish line awaits. Runners will be treated to a tasty meal, drinks, and good company while basking in the glow of a finish well-earned.
