Half Marathon Trail Series: Middle Fork Trail Run 10k | 50k| Half Marathon | 22 mi

September 4, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 7:00 am on day first of September, repeating until September 2, 2023

The Half Marathon Trail Series features several half marathon trail runs over the course of the year, designed to both whet and sate trail runners’ appetites for this wonderful distance!

The different events offer courses at a variety of venues, each with a unique beauty and challenge. Run three or more to earn a full series score. See how you compare to others in your age group, or challenge yourself to go the distance three times this year.

The start is at the Middle Fork Trailhead, and the courses take runners on the Middle Fork Trail and CCC Trail, the longer courses venturing farther up the valley to the Dingford Creek bridge, Goldmyer Hot Springs, and toward Dutch Miller Gap, then back. All courses have modest climb, since the routes follow the river, with a few meanders of the trail up and down the valley slope. The valley features views of the rugged mountain slopes, old-growth trees, majestic cliffs, lush forest, the swiftly-flowing Middle Fork Snoqualmie River, and perhaps some birds fishing along the river.

A NORTHWEST FOREST PASS IS REQUIRED to park at Middle Fork trailhead. An annual pass costs $30 and is honored at any Forest Service operated recreation area where a use fee is required. Note that this is different than a Discover Pass, which allows access to Washington State (not U.S. National Forest) lands.

Course Description
Due to the Middle Fork Trail reconstruction not being scheduled to begin until 2020 following the landslide in early 2018, we will be using new courses. Like the original courses that go far up the Middle Fork Valley, these courses received glowing reviews from the runners. Check the website for current course descriptions.
