Third Annual

The Pilot Butte Challenge is a 1-mile run / fitness walk with 493 feet of elevation gain. Its status as an uphill sprint makes it unique and truly challenging for runners and walkers of all levels (novice to elite). The scenic course winds its way up from the base of Pilot Butte along the nature trail to the top. All proceeds are used to promote and enhance the health and fitness aspects of Pilot Butte. The road to the summit is closed during the event and shuttle service is provided for non-racers.

With more than 500 participants, the revised Summer Celebration was a great success. Results are coming soon along with an overall recap.  We'll also be discussing plans for the 2016 event in which the festival portion will be in full swing. Rob Fincham has already agreed to produce the entertainment again with more acts, lots of shade, and cool entertainment between acts. We're hearing that there may be beer. Stay tuned. This is the biggest event on the Butte and a major fundraiser for Butte improvements.

Help us stop them from building 4 story apartments within feet of Pilot Butte. No one's against housing but tall buildings that exceed city code is too much..
