Teanaway Trail Run: 5km | 10km | Half Marathon | Marathon
June 7 @ 7:00 am - 3:30 pm PDT
An event every year that begins at 7:00 am on day first of June, repeating until June 8, 2025
It’s always sunny in Teanaway! Purchased by Washington State in 2013, Teanaway Community Forest is the first of its kind in the state of Washington. Its unique designation is meant to protect this wild forest land while giving local groups a say in the land’s management, and is a testament to the passion that outdoor enthusiasts have for this Ponderosa Pine-filled valley. Nestled between Wenatchee National Forest and farmland, Teanaway is an oasis for rare wolf packs, wildflowers, and spotted owls. We at Northwest Trail Runs are excited to invite you to this sunny valley, to a truly wild trail run, and catch a peek of Mt. Stuart along the way.
This event is part of the Half Marathon Trail Series, and runners in the Half Marathon distance will earn points toward their series standing.
The course follows primarily dirt logging roads of various ages, as well as some smaller trails through scattered forest, a few meadows, and past sandstone slabs. At times you can catch a peek into neighboring valleys. There is moderate elevation gain, as is listed below.
The half-marathon course is one large loop. Those running the 5k and 10k will each follow the half-marathon loop, but with a well-signed shortcut for each of the shorter distances, while marathoners will complete the half-marathon loop twice.
5k: 280 feet (85m)
10k: 675 feet (205m)
Half Marathon: 1410 feet (430m)
Marathon: 2820 feet (860m)
