Gorgeous Hood To Hood Relay - Course Info
We've just received permission from the US Forest Service for an expanded course in 2018! The 12 legs of the 2018 Gorgeous Hood To Hood Relay will begin on the southern flank of Mt. Hood, and will still take teams north and east towards Hood River, taking in the Gorgeous beauty of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, and the beautiful orchards of the Fruit Loop. Runners will wind their way to Hood River to finish along the Columbia River at Hood River's Waterfront Park.
Stay Tuned for the NEW and improved 2018 course!!!
This leg IS NOT 7.98 miles of continuous running. It is a 4.32 mile downhill run, 1.44 mile drive in the van, and then a short, steep climb of 2.22 miles (see Leg 4.5 below for a full explanation). Leg 4 running totals 6.54 miles.
Due to a short section of Hwy 35 having little to no shoulder (we value your Gorgeous safety), we will have a one time "Instagram driving leg" (1.44 miles) for 2017 only. We have a Gorgeous 1.5 mile trail substitute for 2018!
