Mt. Hood 50

July 11, 2020 - July 12, 2020
The event starts at 06:00.

The Mt. Hood 50 is a heavily shaded 50-mile race that is run almost entirely on the Pacific Crest Trail. The trail is generally soft with good footing, although there are some technical sections with rocks and roots. Runners will start by running North from the Clackamas Ranger Station to the Frog Lake Aid Station, just before Highway 26. They will then return to the start/finish and head South to the Warm Springs Meadows Aid Station, where they will turn around and head back to the finish. Total elevation gain is approximately 5,630 feet.

The 50K and 25K are on Sunday. The 50K course is similar to the 50M in that you head out on the same route, but instead you get to run around Timothy Lake as you make your way to the finish line. The 25K uses the Headwaters trail and the Old 1916 Trail before taking racers around Timothy Lake.

The first 21 miles of this race are on the 50-mile course. Runners will start by running north from the Clackamas Ranger Station, skirting the eastern edge of Timothy Lake before joining the Pacific Crest Trail. You’ll pass through two aid stations before reaching the Turnaround aid station. You will then return the way you came on the PCT, but will turn onto Timothy Lake trail when you reach the lake, running counter clockwise around it. After one last stop at an aid station at the dam, you’ll head for the finish line. The trail is generally soft with good footing, although there are some technical sections with rocks and roots.

Total elevation gain is approximately 2,500 feet.

The 25K course starts in the same place as the 50K, but instead of heading toward Timothy Lake right away, this route will take you across Forest Service road 42 onto the Miller Trail for a short stint. Then you’ll enter new territory, continuing straight onto the Headwaters Trail. This trail is not a part of the 50M or the 50K and takes you around Clackamas Lake. You’ll cross road 42 again, near the Joe Graham horse camp, and then run on the Old 1916 Trail. Here you’ll have a few climbs and descents until you reach the first aid station at mile 5.7. From there, you’ll run about another mile to connect with the Timothy Lake trail. The soft trail takes you around the north side of the lake to the Dam aid station at mile 11.3. Then you’ll continue around the lake to the finish line.
