Hood 2 River Relay, May 30th 2015!
The Hood 2 River Relay is an exciting late spring event that kicks off the summer recreational season on Mt. Hood and in the Columbia River Gorge. Put a fun 2- 6 person team together or do it alone for bragging rights and prepare to quickly descend from the high slopes of the mountain to the low lying elevations of the Columbia River Basin. We love a multi-sport day in Hood River.
2015 Course Updates Due to Weather
Hood 2 River Relay has two exciting new legs that we will debuting of this year's event. Leg 1 will feature an uphill sprint to replace the downhill ski leg. We wanted to stick with the quad burning fun. The sprint will be a 500 meter dash starting at Mt. Hood Meadows parking lot. As a reward for taking on the only leg that finishes higher than it starts we are giving away an extra beer token for leg 1 participants. You take this on you deserve it! Leg 1 will be followed by a super cool 1.5 mile trail run for leg #2. We also have modified leg #3 Mt. Bike Course which will now use the incredibly scenic Sahalie Falls Road instead of having to ride on HWY 35. Last year this section was buried under snow. This year is not a problem!
Full Sail After-Party at the Hood River Marina Green
The Full Sail Brewing Company After-Party will feature great tasting beer on tap, catered BBQ and yummy vegan options by Tofurky.
