7 Summits 100K | 50mi | 50mi relay | 50K

August 10 @ 5:00 am - 11:00 pm PDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 5:00 am on day second of August, repeating until August 12, 2023

7 Summits will start at the Canfield trail system on the eastside of Fernan Lake road. From here runners will enjoy single track (90%) and some forrest service roads (10%), while climbing over West Canfield, East Canfield, Huckleberry, Spades, South Chilco, North Chilco and Bernard Peak (7 Summits). You will end your adventure at Scott’s Field in Farragut State Park. While running the ridges between the mountains you will experience views of Fernan Lake, lake Coeur d’Alene, Hayden Lake and Lake Pend Oreille. Massive amounts of wild huckleberries. From the Chilco’s you can see Montana, Canada, Washington and the Idaho Selkirk’s.

The finish area at Scotts Field in Farragut State Park is a new venue for us. What makes this area so unique is that we are able to offer 150 primitive camping spots (no hookups or showers here) but you can use the showers at Beaver Bay (short drive). Scotts Field has potable water, pit toilets, and a large shelter where we will host a potluck with trail running movies Friday evening from 6:00 pm to ?. Camping is only $10 per evening (which you can add to your cart during registration). We will also have giant Jenga and corn hole to keep spectators occupied. Post-race food will include a lot of salty or sweet options and tacos, yep tacos!! Post-race refreshments provided by Growler Guys CDA.

This run is a one-way event, and we will not have parking available at the Nettleton Gulch parking area. We will have busses transporting you to the start from the finish area for an additional fee ($10 can be added to your cart during registration), or you can have a friend or loved one drop you off at the start line. Please keep in mind that this is a very narrow road and small parking area and there will be absolutely no place to turn around. Busses will leave Scott’s Field in Farragut State Park at 4 am for the 100K and 50-mile distances. Relay teams you will be responsible for your own transportation to the start and to the exchange points (more details about that in the relay description). 50K runners, you will load the bus at 8:00 am. Once you unload the race will start shortly thereafter.

YOUTH SHOE PROGRAM
Trail Maniacs is excited to announce this year that we will be teaming up with Fleet Feet CDA to help kids and teens earn free running shoes. We at Trail Maniacs feel that running can be a life-long sport, and good running shoes are a small part in running longevity. We also know that a good pair of running shoes can be cost prohibitive and that’s why we would like to donate a free pair of running shoes (one pair per year) to youth and teens. Most of you know that we have always donated money to local high school cross country programs, and we will continue with that tradition, but we also wanted to step it up a notch.

We are pleased to announce that starting in 2019 Trail Maniacs and Fleet Feet CDA will give youth and teen runners (ages 12 to 18) a free pair of shoes (one pair per year)! Runners will need to finish two of any our 2019 running event. These events include: Liberty Lake Trail Run, Farragut Trail Run, Mount Spokane Vertical Challenge, even 7 Summits if they dare! Any distance qualifies with the exception of our FREE kids races.
