Moscow Mountain Madness


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.

  • Check out our latest Moscow Mountain Madness maps – to include good visuals on start/finish and parking.

  • This is a challenging race on challenging terrain. Come prepared and ready to burn.

  • Limited parking. Please carpool.

  • Time cut-offs: see course detail pages.

  • Sorry: no dogs and no headphones.

  • Same great post-race food as always.

  • Here’s a map of the local area, including the start.



Whether you choose 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.

For other questions, contact the Race Directors:


  • Can I register on race day? No. Pre‐registration only.

    We don’t mail out registration confirmations. You can email the race director for confirmation if you really need that warm/fuzzy feeling.
