Coyote Wall Trail Races
Wonderland Running is very excited to announce the second running of two beautiful, challenging trail races in the iconic Columbia River Gorge: The Coyote Wall 55K and 25K!
Local time: 12:55 AM
The 55K will take place Saturday, October 31st, 2020 and the 25K will take place on Sunday, November 1st, 2020. The 55K has 8,200’ feet of climb, while the 25K features 4,000’ of climb, all on breathtaking trails with sweeping vistas. The races are grand and thoughtfully crafted tours of this unique Cascade rainshadow ecosystem, with minimal amounts of repeated trails. Mount Hood’s imposing volcanic pyramid looms large over much of the course, while other parts of the course flow between Douglas fir forest, oak savanna, and grasslands with seemingly endless viewscapes of the Columbia River Gorge.
This is a rugged, sometimes technical, and fairly steep course that will challenge even the most seasoned trail runners. Due to steep climbs and technical terrain, these are not considered beginner’s courses, and runners are therefore strongly encouraged to have prior trail running experience. However, with a 9½ hour cutoff for the 55K and a 5½ hours for the 25K, adequately prepared trail runners of all speeds will be able to finish.
New for this year: finisher's awards, and warm, yummy finish line food!!! Don't worry, there will still be plenty of old-school, fat-ass style vibe... you just get some things with it this time!
Mark your calendars for what promises to be a magical and memorable trail running weekend in our beloved Columbia River Gorge! I hope to see you out there for these Autumnal adventures!!!!!
