Death by Staircase

A celebration of trails and community!

Traverse a 3.8 mile loop including the infamous staircase of death! Join a team or run solo to see who can survive. The course includes the very rugged staircase of death, climbing over 800 feet in less than a mile then plummeting down the other side and finishing up with a fast, runnable couple of miles back to the start.

Runners may choose to join a relay team, or run solo; running as many laps within the time frame as they can.
Or join the Fun Run, running between 1 and 3 laps as you please.

Where and When

Death by Staircase will take place over 12 hours from 8am to 8pm on June 8th.

The race will start from the Overlook Trailhead parking lot by the Moreau beach.
