Course

This is a challenging but seriously scenic course with gorgeous views of Mt. Rainier.

Course (TENTATIVE)
This is a challenging trail half marathon-- in fact it will be our most challenging yet within our half marathon series! You will be running up a mountain and back down, with amazing views of Mt. Rainier all along the ridge!

You'll run through peaceful woods, past beautiful lakes, and through meadows filled with wild flowers. The first 5 miles include a difficult 2,400 foot elevation gain as you summit the mountain on very runable single track trail. After running along the ridge for a bit, you will then drop down a slightly steep downhill trail for the last 6 miles.

Runners will have 5 hours to complete the half marathon course.

Aid Stations

All stations are cup-free so plan to bring your own hydration solution or request a free HydraPouch when you register.
