The fifth annual Multnomah Falls Trail Run will take place on Sunday, September 27, 2015. This isn’t going to be just any trail event, however. Oh no, definitely not. This race will feature original Superhero Contest. What is a Superhero Contest, Jessica? Well, I’m glad you asked! The first male and female runner to finish the race dressed as a superhero will receive a fifth of hand-crafted, local whiskey. BAM! Now that is something special!

Choose to run or walk, in the 5.9 mile event. The race has a lovely start/finish at Wahkeena Trailhead, and will challenge you with a respectable 1,800 feet of elevation gain. The course features a variety of terrain, including paved trails, hard-packed dirt, rock, steep inclines … a little of just about everything. You will journey along the Return Trail to Multnomah Falls, up Larch Mountain Trail to witness the gorgeous Multnomah Falls. You’ll then journey along Vista Trail to to complete the loop, with the finish line at the Wahkeena Trailhead. This will be a spectacular, scenic 5.9 mile loop for runners and walkers alike.

In addition to the awesome Superhero Contest, overall finishers and age group awards will be presented. If you choose to register for the walk, all finishers will receive an award. The finish lined will feature Eric’s signature tortilla soup (chicken or vegetarian) and Small Town Roasters will provide “craft brewed” coffee.
