One of the best mountain runs in the nation, the Timberine Mt Run is a 12K loop starting and finishing at historic Timberline Lodge at an elevation of 6000 feet above sea level. The entire course is at altitude, with over 2000 feet in elevation gain, and over 2000 feet in elevation loss, the high point reaching nearly 7000 feet at Palmer Chair, the top of the Magic Mile. As challenging as it is to race, it's extremely scenic and fun just to complete, especially with the cold craft brew and hot dogs at the Wy'East balcony overlooking the finish line.
You don't have to run on a team, but as it's the home of the Mountain Running Team Championships, you can simply list your team name to compete for the trophy. There is no limit to team size, except that you need at least two people overall, and at least one female on your team. Team points are heavily weighted toward participation, so the larger your team, the greater your score.
