Race Preview: 2018 Uphill Challenge and 5K Race (Mt. Hood)

Do you love the challenge of running up a good hill? The Uphill Challenge and 5K Race gives you a chance to take on that challenge at Mt. Hood Meadows. The 5th Annual Uphill Challenge is a 1.2 mile course that starts in the main parking lot at Mt. Hood Meadows and follows a gravel mountain road to finish at the top of Stadium Chairlift for a total elevation gain of 621 feet. After that challenging climb you can take the chairlift back down. Spectators can ride the chair lift and watch runners make their way up the hill for $15.

If 1.2 miles isn’t quite enough for you, a 5K has been added this year. After running up to Stadium Chairlift, 5K runners will continue on to the Timberline Trail and then down Southside Road back to the start/finish.

Stick around afterwards for the Bar-B-Que and awards ceremony on the Paradise Deck.

The Uphill Challenge and 5K Race is one of the many summer events being held at Mt. Hood Meadows. Find out more about the 2018 summer events here.
