Cascade Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run
August 24 - August 25
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day fourth of August, repeating until August 27, 2023
Cascade Crest is a challenging 100 mile trail run through the Central Cascades of Washington State. The course currently runs as a clockwise loop from the Easton Fire Station. The race starts is 9:00 am Saturday morning and there is an overall time limit of 34 hours.
Randy Gehrke founded and directed the race from 1999 through 2005. Charlie Crissman directed the race from 2007 through 2012. Their efforts have established Cascade Crest as one of the premier 100 milers in the country.
The course record on the new, longer course is 18:03:00 by 3 time winner Jesse Lang of Richland, WA.
The course record of 17:56:50 on the original course is held by Seth Swanson of Missoula, MT, set in 2014.
The women’s record is 19:25:56 by Alissa St Laurant of Edmonton, Alberta in 2015.
Rod Bien (18:27:52) and Darcy Africa (21:15:12) each hold the second fastest time.
Entrants must complete an organized trail 50-miler or longer between January 1st, 2019 and July 31st, 2019, OR have completed an organized trail 100-miler ever. There should be no ambiguity that your qualifier is a “trail” run. Cascade Crest 100 is not easy… prepare accordingly.
Trail Work Requirement
Entrants get to do 8 hours of trail work. This trail work must be completed between January 1st and July 31st to count for that year’s race, and should also be done with an organized work party such as the PCTA, WTA, or other trail work organization. Documentation of your trail work must be completed using the online submission form prior to August 1st. Trail work can be done where it is convenient for the runner. We recommend contacting your local US Forest Service office for trail work opportunities. For locals, the Washington Trails Association hosts trail work parties nearly every weekend in beautiful locations throughout the state. The trail work requirement applies to all entrants. Volunteering at a race does not constitute trail work.
