About Badger Mountain Challenge

Badger Mountain is the place where climbers, hikers, and runners all converge in the Tri-Cities, and This local mountain offers expansive views of the beautiful Columbia Basin.

This region is unique in that there are very few native trees so a person can see for miles in all directions, but that also means that it can also be very windy on the ridges.

The Badger Mountain Challenge is a great opportunity to be involved in a race that has a small-town feel but with all the support of a big race.

Run in either the 50K, 50 mile or 100 mile race and enjoy running in this amazing ultra marathon!
