Get ready for the most picturesque marathon and half marathon trail running course in the Pacific Northwest! The course completely circles shimmering Timothy Lake on single track trails that are absolutely a runner’s dream. This gem is nestled at 3,000 feet in the high Cascades and the views of Mt. … MORE

    I’d walked a little around Timothy lake before and for some reason thought the majority of the run would be like that section (flat and smooth). In reality, almost all the run is on more traditional trails, complete with the mud, puddles, roots, and rocks I should have expected.
    It was pretty (though very wet). Unfortunately I went out way too fast for the conditions and blew my race out.
    It really wasn’t that rough for a trail run, just make sure you pace yourself for a trail and not for flat packed gravel.

    first trail half marathon, and I'd say this was a pretty beginner friendly course. minimal hills, nice scenery, easy to navigate. would run again. MORE

    I’ve run over 30 marathons, but have never run one on a trail. This one was amazing! It’s really small, but well organized. The course is mostly single-track trail, but very “runnable”. The full marathon is 2 loops around Timothy Lake with very rewarding views of Mt. Hood! There are 2 significant hills on the course, but it’s mostly flat. If you want a great Oregon experience, I’d highly recommend this race!
