Event Description

Mt. Ashland 5K

Race registration is now up! http://www.imathlete.com/events/EventOverview.aspx?fEID=39455

Race will start at 10:30am.  Packet pick up beginning at 9:00am in the Mt. Ashland ski lodge parking lot.

The Mt. A. 5K is America’s friendliest 5K with hugs at the finish.  This monumental 5K starts at the Mt. Ashland lodge and winds it’s way to the weather ball on top of the mountain. It then takes the road back down to the finish in the parking lot.

Proud to be certified by the record holder for the fastest female 100 mile trail race, ultra marathoner Jenn Shelton.

RACE DETAILS

This is not your typical 5K!

The course begins with an 1,100 foot climb.  At the top of the climb, you’ll be greeted by a friendly aid station stocked with water and……CHALLENGE Cards or TIME Cards.  You must pick one of these.  Challenge cards are challenges you’ll need to perform such as doing a # of push-ups, playing a game of corn hole,  singing a Justin Bieber song, or even going back to the start and beginning all over again (yeah, we’re jerks!)!  If you choose not to take the challenge (and seriously, who knows a Justin Bieber song let alone wants to sing it!?  We have no problem with climbing the mountain again, but seriously, Justin Bieber?!?!?), then you need to take a time card instead.  The time cards are completely random and might INCREASE orDECREASE your time.  Who knows what your time will be?  It’s a risk!

Once you pass the finish line, turn in your challenge or time card with your race bib # for a chance to win one of our AWESOME raffle prizes!  If you are the lucky runner to select the “return to start” card AND you actually do it, you’ll automatically win a prize.  It’s the least we can do.  Really.  You’ll have earned it.

Stay tuned for 2017 raffle prizes, but examples from last year included:

2 Adult lift tickets to Mt. Ashland$40 gift certificate to Rogue Ski Shop2 $50 gift certificates to Rogue Valley Runners$25 gift card to Oak Tree Bar and Grill6 $15 gift cards to Road IDGift certificates to Ruby’s of AshlandTrail Butter yummiesTail Wind Endurance drink mixDirt bag runner hats, buffs and kooziesDutch Bros drink cards and t-shirtsPlus 1 can of Caldera Beer to all finishers (21 years and older)

Bring your race bib to Gil’s in Ashland and receive $1 off your pint!

This is a serious 5K not to be taken seriously.  Have fun!  It’s the FRIENDLIEST!
