About This Activity

The course is an exhilarating 10K one-way run to the top of Black Butte a stratovolcano 5.5 miles west of Sisters, Oregon in Deschutes National Forest--a more than 3,200' change in elevation. Take in gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains--Mt. Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack, The Sisters, and Mt. Washington as you scale the hillside wrapped around the Butte. The trail starts out nearly level/slightly downhill for the first two miles then climbs steadily for the last four miles with a small level section near the Aid Station at 4.2 miles. It is very runnable trail with some small technical sections (roots, small boulders).
