Description:

You will have the opportunity to explore some of the most magnificent country in the Pacific Northwest.

Your 82 mile adventure will start by heading south out of Hilgard Junction State Park on old Highway 244 along the Grande Ronde River. Once the highway leaves the river you will come to the first of many challenging climbs, and work your way into the backcountry beginning a 20+ mile section of gravel mountain roads.

From here you will begin to catch glimpses of the awe inspiring Elkhorn mountains looming to the south and slowly climb up the backside of Anthony Lakes reaching 7,400 feet altitude!

After you have climbed 6,000 feet of elevation, you’ll finish with a trail leg near the Anthony Lakes Ski Resort. Every runner will get the opportunity to run on the trails. Once you’ve reached the peak, you can set out blankets and chairs to eat and chill at our finish line while your team mates suffer on their last leg. Want to stay and celebrate? There are tent camping areas nearby.
