Welcome to Wy’east!
Wy’east Trailfest features a trio of world-class mountain trail races featuring some of Mt. Hood’s most diverse and famous terrain, offering 50K, 28K & 14K loop-style courses, with a truly epic Triple Crown option for those looking to complete all three races back-to-back-to-back! Climbing up to 8000’ elevation on Wy’east (the native ancestral name for Mt. Hood), each course offers incomparable panoramic views of the Pacific Crest, Central Oregon high desert and the Columbia River Gorge. With rugged volcanic alpine trails up high and lush wildflower meadows and forested trails down low, Wy’east Trailfest offers a truly epic mountain trail race experience.
Staged at Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Area, Wy’east Trailfest combines equal parts grassroots trail community vibes with a higher level production event where we celebrate our sport, honor the mountain and recognize each other’s accomplishments with awards, excellent food, craft beverages, and fun games and activities on the ski lodge’s Sun Deck finish line.
Land Acknowledgement: We honor and recognize that we gather for this event on the traditional lands of the Molalla, Kalapuyan, Chinookan Clackamas, Wasco and Wishram, and Northern Paiute peoples and other Sahaptin speakers who have occupied and stewarded these lands for countless generations.
