Whether you choose 50k, 13.1 or 5 miles, you can expect a challenging run along the spine of scenic Moscow Mountain. All courses are mostly technical single-track, but we’ve included some fast logging roads. Wickedly rugged? Yes. But the trails are smooth and the Palouse views will keep you smiling. Serious up, serious down, serious gorgeous.

The Moscow Mountain Madness Run began in 1978, when some 60 pioneering runners braved the MMM, and after a 4 year hiatus starting in the late 80′s, the race was reinstated in 1992. After a few years of runners only, bikers were invited to participate, but the bike race was dropped in 2010. The current half-marathon course was instituted in 2011, and the 50K was added in 2013.
