The Cheadle Challenge is a homegrown adventure run that takes place at Cheadle Lake Park in Lebanon, Oregon. The course just over 3 miles in length winds along lakeside trails, through the woods, across fields, a small swamp and also includes at least eight obstacles of varying difficulty. The Cheadle Challenge is designed to be run, jogged or walked ... if you're an elite trail runner, you'll have a blast; if you want to bring the family and enjoy some good "dirty" fun - you'll have a blast! Trails vary between dirt, gravel and pavement.
Following the run you'll enjoy our bonfire, cold beer (or non-alcoholic beverage) and HOT soup - all served up by local volunteers.
Proceeds from the Cheadle Challenge go directly to benefit local non-profits - impacting the lives and well being of thousands in East Linn County.
Come for the fun, stay for the fun!
