Mt. Hood Scramble

The 2008 edition of the Mt. Hood Scramble was everything it promised and more. More miles, more river crossings, more snow, more blood and more filth. Due to large amounts of snow on the upper sections of the original course, the 2008 course started by going downstream along the White River before turning back up to and past the parking lot and start/finish area. With a winning time of over 1 hour (no official results or race times were available at the time of this posting), most runners thought the course was long (or just really slow - or both). Despite the challenging course, the weather was perfect - cool, clear, calm with perfect views of Mt. Hood.

What kind of a team name is Red Lizard, anyway? CMS rules!

Alan - That is an excellent question and I will answer it for you in a way that will surely shed light on this important question of East meets West. A "Red Lizard" is a runner that in spite of the name, is not in fact, actually red in color but rather red in nature - in mind, body and spirit.
