Timberline Events LLC specializes in organizing team relay races. Rather than design races to handle large number of teams, we prefer to have the quality of the route be the primary goal.
Timberline Events LLC was formed in January 2004 and is based in Englewood, Colorado. Specializing in running relay events, Timberline Events’ first event was the Wild West Relay in 2004, a 198-mile route from Fort Collins to Steamboat Springs traveling through Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming. We revived the Outward Bound Relay course in 2013 and renamed it the Flaming Foliage Relay.
We also have a “sprint” relay in Oregon between college football rivalries the University of Oregon in Eugene and Oregon State University in Corvallis.
Timberline Events LLC has a very good reputation and safety record. We are known for our scenic and rural routes, and the high quality of the organization of our events.
The owner of Timberline Events is Paul Vanderheiden. Paul’s professional background includes being a commercial whitewater river guide since 1979, working on rivers in California, Oregon, Idaho, and the Grand Canyon in Arizona. He also owned and managed Open Air Adventures for eleven years, offering river trips on the Class V section of the Kern River known as “The Forks of the Kern” in a partnership with Kern River Tours, the permit holder for that section of river. Paul also earned an ATP pilot’s license, the highest commercial pilot license rating available.
His running background includes completing eighteen marathons, three Half-Ironman, and one Ironman triathlon, and organizing or participating with ten relay teams running five different relay events.
Timberline Events also time races under the business name Finish Line Timing.
Timberline Events LLC is a member of 1% For the Planet – one percent of our revenue is donated to environmental organizations.
