Mazama Ultra Running Camp July 29–31, 2017

Located at the base of Mt. Hood, at beautiful Mazama Lodge, the Mazama Ultra Running Camp is for ultra runners to experience trail running at its finest!

Beautiful scenery, challenging terrain, and wonderful new friends!

Led by Krissy Moehl and Jeff Browning, you’ll spend 3 days and 2 nights exploring the beautiful trails in the Mt. Hood National Forest and learning from some of the masters of ultra running. During the camp, you’ll have the opportunity to circumnavigate Mt. Hood as a team. This circumnavigation is considered to be one of the crown jewels of Pacific Northwest ultra running! This run involves 40 (ish) miles on trail with appx. 10,000 ft of elevation gain and a variety of technical challenges—river crossings, glacier crossing, steep descents and ascents, and more all in a stunningly beautiful location.

You always want to stop and check the map to make sure you are on the right track!

You'll get plenty of time pre-Timberline Run to prepare for the big day with your instructors.

Getting started in the early morning light.

There is no shortage of waterfalls along the way!

River crossings add to the challenge (and fun!) of the Timberline circumnavigation.

Sometimes there's a well-defined trail, and other times you'll be picking your way across glacial moraine.

There will be lots of smiles along the way!
