The original east-of-Wy’east Mt. Hood race, this 50-miler and 50K is possibly our most scenic yet. You will want to return to these ridge line trails again and again.
The Wy’east Wonder is a point-to-point race run mostly on two ridges alongside Mt. Hood; Gunsight Ridge and Surveyor’s Ridge. You will have so many views of Wy’east (the Multnomah Tribe word for Mt. Hood) as you make your way from it’s southern side around to the east, that you may actually get tired of looking at it. We promise we’ll take your breath away, and it won’t be from only running. The 50M route has 7,082′ of elevation gain and 10,012 of loss. The 50K has 4,193′ of gain and 7,122′ of loss.
The race starts at Bennett Pass Sno Park and finishes at the Oak Ridge trailhead, right near Parkdale, Oregon. The Wy’east Wonder post-race party is just a short shuttle ride away from the finish line at the Red Barn Park in Parkdale. There is no racer or spectator parking at either the start or the finish so all racers, volunteers and spectators will park at the Red Barn Park in Parkdale. Runners will board shuttles to get to the starting line. Shuttles will bring racers back to the park when they finish. Runners can be dropped of at Bennett Pass Sno-Park. Spectators can take the shuttle from Red Barn to the finish line to watch their runner come in, and then ride the shuttle back to Red Barn with them.
