On August 23-26th 2017 Team "Finish Inspired" returned to the Mountain to take on the next epic challenge with the #RunBikeAndHike Adventure!
The Adventure began in Portland, Oregon with a trail run up to the highest point in the largest city in Oregon! The next day we hiked up the side of a 3000 foot mountain trail in Washington state on the north side of the Columbia river gorge, followed by a 25 mile bike ride with gorgeous views of the river, finishing with a run along the downtown waterfront park in Hood River.
The highlight of the event began with a run around Trillium Lake with the most amazing view of the Mountain we were prepared to climb next, following the Pacific Crest Trail up 2000 feet to Timberline lodge and ski resort. The finale of the day was cycling from 6000 feet in elevation, all the way down Mt. Hood and highway 26 back into Portland!
A recovery was needed on Sunday that lead us to Rocky Butte, Marine Drive along the river, and over the Tillikum Crossing in downtown Portland.
This was actually our alternate plan after running the Hood to Coast relay in 2017, but now with the opportunity to take on both of these epic adventures in 2019!
So where do we go from here?
