Sunday Classic at Bishop’s Land

Bishop's Land

Junior Nationals Day 2

See the schedule for start windows and course closure. EVERYONE has an assigned start time. Start times will be published on EventReg in March.

Map Information

The Bishops Land Recreation Area topography is a direct result of the Glacial Lake Missoula floods. Ancient flood waters poured through the Quincy area and scoured trenches and pools adjacent to the existing Columbia River. These scoured areas have created small buttes and valleys that create a warren of navigable terrain. The area is covered with sage and low-lying vegetation that can obscure smaller point features. However, good contact with the map will provide plenty of attack points and catching features. There are enough roads and trails crossing the east half of the venue to allow for challenges for the younger runners. Due to the seemingly endless channels, courses can provide equal challenges north and south as well as east and west. The venue is a course designer’s dream and a competitor’s welcome challenge.
