Race Description

The Chehalem Challenge is a benefit fundraiser for Chehalem Mountain Therapy Riding Center. The Chehalem Challenge is just that, a challenge. The Chehalem Mountains provide a beautiful backdrop for this test of endurance. Because Tough Mothers do “More Than…” every single day, the “More Than” Half Marathon is designed to require strength, perseverance, and discipline. The “More Than” Half Marathon is 14 miles in length with 6 miles of gravel, a 1068 foot elevation climb in the first 5 miles. Yet, just past mile 5 you’ve reached the summit (!) and a beautiful “mountaintop experience” awaits you as you run along the top of Chehalem Mountain with view of the Newberg Valley. Breathe deeply as you run through the fresh air of farmlands and forests. At mile 10 you begin a 2 mile climb with a 488 foot elevation change before you run the final 1.5 miles downhill to the finish. There will be water/aid stations throughout the course to replenish the bodies.
Race is timed and results will be posted as runners finish.
