Race Preview: 2020 Cloud Cap (Mt. Hood)


With all of the beautiful blue skies this past month, you might have had extra opportunities to notices majestic Mt. Hood looking out over the treetops. And Daybreak Racing is providing the opportunity to hit the trails up there this September. With a careful eye on Covid-19 related restrictions, final confirmation about the race will be sent out August 26th. More coronavirus details are available through a page on their website.

Cloud Cap includes multiple distance options to take you up and around Cloud Cap-Tilly Jane Historic District. The area was ravaged by the 2008 Gnarl Ridge Fire, which means you will be treading through nature in recovery mode and get to see how life finds a way. The full marathon, half marathon, and 10K distances will all provide racers with a challenging climb and descent over trails and rocks. The marked course includes full-service aid stations, pre and post-race food and beverages, and professional photography to show off your adventure. And crossing that finish line means a custom finisher award to celebrate with. If you want a race shirt, hat, or other bling, check out the Daybreak Racing store.
