Winter Trail Series: Ravenna Refresher 4k | 8k | 12k
November 16, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm PST
An event every year that begins at 8:30 am on day third of November, repeating until November 19, 2022
The Winter Trail Series celebrates Seattle and the Eastside’s local parks with trail runs that will keep your winter fitness warm. All events have a choice of at least two distances, with shorter course lengths ranging from 4-8 kilometers (2.5-5 miles), and longer course lengths ranging from 10-21 kilometers (6-13 miles). So rally your running pals and put these motivating events on your calendar!
Nestled just north of the University District, Ravenna Park is a forest-filled ravine and 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 Refresher! 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.
Join us for a 4k, 8k, or 12k trail run at Ravenna Refresher, the second event in the Winter Trail Series!
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.

Directions & Parking
The parking lot at Ravenna Park is very small (fewer than 30 spaces), so be prepared to find nearby street parking North (unrestricted, but a bit farther scenic walk) or South (2-hour limit between 7am and 8pm) of the park.
The start area is in the meadow to the northeast of the small parking lot.
