Rattlesnake Ridge Run 5 Mi | Half Marathon
May 30, 2020 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
An event every year that begins at 7:00 am on the last Saturday of June, repeating until May 31, 2025
Come experience Rattlesnake Ridge! This well-loved single track gem of the eastern Issaquah Alps divides the Snoqualmie River Valley from the vast Cedar River Watershed. The course features a climb through diverse forest types, peekaboo views of the Snoqualmie Valley, and a fast descent to the finish.
This event is part of the Half Marathon Trail Series, and runners in the Half Marathon distance will earn points toward their series standing.
From the start at Rattlesnake Lake, the course crosses Cedar Falls Road (cross when directed by event staff), turns right to connect to the Palouse to Cascades Trail toward Snoqualmie Pass, reaches the turn-around point at the halfway mark, then returns to the finish at the Rattlesnake Lake picnic area via the same route.
Elevation gain: about 245 feet.
Runners will start at Rattlesnake Lake and finish at Snoqualmie Point Park. This will relieve runners from encountering heavy trail traffic from hikers going up to Rattlesnake Ledge and back. There will be complimentary shuttles for Half Marathon runners going from the finish at Snoqualmie Point Park back to Rattlesnake Lake.
Elevation gain: about 3000 feet.
Rail Half Marathon: Runners will start at Rattlesnake Lake and do an out and back. Runners will start at 7:30am to avoid heavy trail traffic at Rattlesnake Lake parking area.
