Consider this an invitation to all the wild women who like to run long, play hard, and eat locally. Wild Woman Trail 50K, Marathon, Relay, or Half-Marathon is a trail run created by and for women. We invite you and your girlfriends to join us for a weekend of miles of field and forest fun. Come for the run, stay for the weekend at our Mt. Adams base camp. Bring your tent (or camper van/RV) and your friends who like to run long, play hard and eat locally. Wild Woman Marathon has all the ingredients for a great, wholesome weekend: good trails, good food, and great women.

And since not everyone wants to run for hours, the relay option allows friends to pick and choose their distances. Relay legs range from 4.6-8 miles. Afterwards, all runners will be treated to lunch, post-run yoga, and pure bliss.

As you know, we started Wild Woman to provide girlfriends with an opportunity to run on trails and reconnect. Over the past ten years, we have loved hosting a trail running weekend, meeting all of you, and watching your smiles as you crossed the finish line, perhaps going farther than you may have ever gone before.

Continue pushing those limits.

Your inner wild woman knows that you can do whatever you set your mind to. She knows that you have zero limits. Embrace her. We are.

See you in June!

We live (and run) up, down, and even around the base of Mt. Adams (a 12,276-foot volcano). For the past few decades, long runs have provided us with an opportunity to reconnect with girlfriends from Orcas 50K to Mountain Lakes 100, Smith Rocks 50K to Javelina Jundred. And over the past few years we've reached even higher--together--but in our own direction (Betsy completed Ironman Kona and Steph finished UTMB). And we're still reaching for more dreams! We've traded life stories over miles of trails, plates of pre-run pasta and post-run pinot gris.

We feel extremely grateful to be able to return the favor of where trail running has brought us and share it with you by holding a women's trail run in our backyard and invite gals from all over to run with us. Not everyone wants to run a marathon or an ultra, so that's why we are offering a trail relay and a trail half-marathon too. But, from what we've witnessed over the years, trails bring us joy--and you will find it out there too.
Come find your inner wild on the flanks of Mt. Adams.

Every year we choose a local non-profit to support. This year, we will support which provides free and outdoor immersion and mental health for Columbia Gorge youth.
