Tiger Peak Challenge Half-Marathon | Marathon | 50k
August 6, 2022 @ 6:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT
An event every year that begins at 6:00 am on day first of August, repeating until August 2, 2025
The name says it all — challenge! If you’re looking for a race to make your legs come alive, this is the one for you. Our Tiger Peak Challenge will have you climbing two of Tiger Mountain’s peaks, and if that doesn’t satisfy your need for elevation, you can always run them again!
Located near Issaquah, WA, Tiger Mountain State Forest is a 13,745-acre working forest that includes the West Tiger Mountain Natural Resources Conservation Area. Tiger Mountain offers many recreational opportunities, including hiking; mountain biking; equestrian trails; hang gliding; paragliding; and, of course, some of the best trail running in the area.
As part of our new Woodland Speeders program, we offer free kid’s races at all of our events. Parents are welcome to run with their kids. You can register your child during the registration process for your own race or sign them up later. Distances vary and are approximate, but we aim for about 1K in distance.
All distances start with the same stretch of trail, but the 5M runners have a smaller loop than the half-marathoners. The brave 50K runners will do the 13.1 mile (half-marathon) loop twice, with the 5M loop squeezed in between loops.
The trails will be open to other users during the event. See our FAQ page for more information about sharing the trails.
There will be aid stations throughout the course with volunteers to help, food to eat and hydration to refuel. And of course, there will be an assortment of yummy food and treats waiting for you at the finish line.
This is a cupless race. All runners should carry with them a refillable container that they can run with. There will be a limited number of cups for emergency situations.
