2022 Wild Woman Marathon, 50K, Half Marathon, and 7 Miler

Mt. Adams
Trout Lake, Washington

The spirit of the Wild Woman video. Click here.

We have decided to pause Wild Woman for this year. And to be honest, it has nothing to do with COVID. This year, it’s about us—Betsy and Steph. And we would like to empower all of you lovely women out there who have given huge chunks of your lives to your kids, your husbands, your homes and your work, that maybe it’s time to do something just for yourself this year too. Make this the year to find your joy—and you might just find it rippling through the rest of your life.

As you know, we started Wild Woman to provide girlfriends with an opportunity to run on trails and reconnect. Over the past nine years (it would have been 10 if it weren’t for COVID), 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 2023.

Consider this an invitation to all the wild women who like to run long, play hard, and eat locally.

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. We've traded life stories over plates of pre-run pasta and post-run pinot gris.

We decided it was time to return the favor, and hold 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 relay, a 7-mile and a half-marathon 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 help victims of domestic violence get back up on their feet to live a safe and healthy life by donating a portion of our proceeds to Helping Hands Against Violence. Helping Hands is a non-profit organization in Hood River, Oregon which supports victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking through shelter, advocacy, education and outreach. For more information: Helping Hands Against Violence
