Presents Jim Bridger Mountain Man

An exhilarating event to benefit the students at Bridger School.

Day of Pick-Up (7:30AM – 8:30 AM): Friendly volunteers will be ready to get you matched up with your race bib and packet for all other events.

Jim Bridger 5K Trail Run (9:00 AM): An exhilarating run starting and finishing at Bridger School will take you through Portland’s beautiful Montavilla Neighborhood, into Mt. Tabor Park and back to Bridger School. The terrain features some road but mostly scenic dirt trails. We will have three guide stations along the route that can offer aid, directions and enthusiastic cheering as you make your climb to the top and down.

Jim Bridger King of the Mountain Family Crawl (9:15AM): This event is meant for those that aren’t in a hurry to get to where they’re going and want to take in the scenery before ascending the summit. Starting and finishing at Bridger School this course will take you through Portland’s beautiful Montavilla Neighborhood into Mt. Tabor Park where you can either make a straight ascent to the top, or break from the mundane and explore the park and its majestic views before returning to the school. The terrain features road and dirt trail. We will have three guide stations along the route that can offer aid, directions and enthusiastic cheering as you make your climb to the top and down.

Jim Bridger Parkour Challenge (9:15 AM): Parkour is a method of training which allows you to move through urban and natural environments, using only the human body to overcome all obstacles.  Expect to run, jump, climb and vault, using precision, balance, strength and speed.  Whether you are an expect Traceur or a novice, you will use these techniques to get from the top of Mt. Tabor, through two miles of obstacles and challenges, and on to Bridger School.  An experienced Traceur will warm up, train and then lead your group safely through the rigorous Parkour Course, which will take 45 to 90 minutes, depending on ability.

Jim Bridger Mountain Man Training for Kids (9:30 AM): This event is an obstacle course for all ages and will be held on the Bridger Campus.

All participants will be provided Bagels, Bananas and Rootbeer at the finish line.
