Host of the 2021 USATF Mountain Running Championships and selection race for the US Mountain Running Team.

Gnar Gnar Gnarly! Produced by Go Beyond Racing and presented by Nike Trail, the Gnar Gnar is a fun and breathtaking race that will send you up to the top of Mt. Hood Ski Bowl and right back down in just six total miles.

Gnar Gnar will open as a wait list. This is just in case the event has to be cancelled due to COVID. Your credit card is NOT charged when you are placed on the wait list. We will invite runners into the race from the wait list, in order, until reaching capacity. Assuming COVID restrictions, the race could be capped at 250, but we won’t know the exact number until closer to the event – hopefully it’ll be closer to 400.

Please note that there are no transfers to other runners. If you need to cancel your registration and it’s more than 30 days prior to the race, you will receive a 50% credit toward a future Go Beyond Racing race. If your cancellation is 30 days or less from race day, there is no credit, no refund, or no transfer. See our full cancellation policy for details.

Optional race shirts may be ordered during registration, through July 13th.
