Uphill Challenge

August 4, 2018

Time: 9:30 AM- 3 PM 
Location: Mt. Hood Meadows
Category: Summer Event

The Uphill Challenge is an uphill running or walking race beginning in the main parking lot and finishing at the top of Stadium Chairlift for a total of 1.2 miles with 621 feet of elevation gain. The fastest male and the fastest female will win $250 each!

New this season - we have added a 5K option to this race! The 5K option will continue onto the Timberline Trail and down the Southside Road and back to the main lot.

Following the finish, competitors will ride the Stadium Chairlift back down to the base area. Chair lift rides will be offered to spectators for $15 and our BBQ fires up at 11 AM! We encourage competitors to bring a water bottle and sunscreen - even though it's a morning event, temperatures may be very warm.
