Updated September 16th, 2023, pub-4167727599129474, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Melrose is a very active town. There is a YMCA, Melrose Boot Camp and a large and active running club, the Melrose Running Club. Whenever I drive through town I see runners everywhere. 

If you are promoting a race that I do not have listed here, please contact me at [email protected].

This race was managed by The Melrose Fire Department for many years. In 2023 The Melrose Police Department took over management of this race but did not have enough time to pull it togethering.

We are hopeful that the Melrose Police Department will be able to make a go of this fun race in 2024.

Mt. Hood Nut Cracker Challenge

TBD December | Noon 

assault on Mt Hood, cross country

In 2022 the Assault on Mt. Hood was renamed The Mt. Hood Nut Cracker Challenge.  

The race has been based out of the Mt. Hood Golf Course club house the past few years and will be there for the foreseeable future. 

This race has become an early winter tradition for cross-country runners from the GBA and beyond. The race is run on the Mt. Hood golf course and the route is slightly different year-to-year depending on conditions.

The race organizers seek to make the course more challenging each year. So come prepared to climb hills!

This Melrose Running Club production features awards, refreshments, a Huge Post Race Party with plenty of food and a few beers.

And don’t forget about the legendary nutcrackers!

We have a 2023 date, but registration is not open yet.
