Get off the road and into the hills! The breathtaking views and stunning Snake River Valley scenery from the top of the Owyhees are worth the 850 foot elevation climb. From the park the route will take runners one mile south on pavement down Hwy 201 then will go Off-Road up into the hills to the summit of Blackjack Butte to overlook the Snake River Valley before turning south, then looping across the ridge of the Owyhees, rewarding participants with fabulous views of the rugged Owyhee River Valley to the west. This challenging coarse is a great way to kick off a new running season, offering great bragging rights and excellent training for other events later on in the year.
Over 90 percent of the coarse is on BLM dirt roads and trails. Easily, one of the most beautiful runs in the Treasure Valley!
Start the year off right: Take the Challenge!

Both runners and walkers are welcome to compete regardless of experience. There is a generous time limit of four hours, (18 minute per mile average). We look forward to seeing you and wish you the best of success in your training.

All participants will receive a high quality Leslie Jordan brand long-sleeve tech shirt.
Proceeds help support the track program for a small rural town in Eastern Oregon.
