Tuesday Night Trail To Grill Series: Ravenna Run the Ravine 4K | 8K | 12K
June 11, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
An event every year that begins at 5:30 pm on day second of June, repeating until June 14, 2022
The Tuesday Night Trail to Grill series offers an opportunity to enjoy the long days of summer and get your trail fix on a weeknight. All runs end with grilled hot dogs (vegetarian too!) and watermelon or other cool treats. Distances range from 4 kilometers to 10 miles. Come make the most of summer evenings, and put these fun runs on your calendar!
Nestled just north of the University District, Ravenna Park is a forest-filled ravine that serves as a green retreat for city dwellers. According to Seattle Parks & Recreation, a local realtor named Ravenna Park after “an Italian seacoast town that was famous for its pine trees, where poets, warriors, and statesmen once strolled in a state of euphoria…” Experience your own trail running-induced euphoria at Ravenna Run the Ravine! Whether it’s your first trail run, a chance to set a personal record, or simply some motivating maintenance miles, you’ll be glad you ran at Ravenna Park.
All courses use the same 4.1 km loop, with low to moderate climb (230 feet per loop) and nicely groomed forested trails. There are a few steeper pitches, but most of the course is gently sloping, as the course takes runners up and down the ravine.
There will be an aid station at the start/finish point, so runners doing the 8 km and 12 km distances will pass the aid station once and twice, respectively.
The aid station offers water, electrolyte drink, and some carbohydrate-rich or salty foods, such as cookies, pieces of energy bar, gels, chews, chips, bagel, fruity candy, fig bars, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and/or bananas.
