All three runs are out and back with a few road crossings. Participants will heed traffic while crossing all roads, there will be NO crossing guards. As with all NW Ultra events these are meant to be fun runs with limited aid. Any diversion from the trail will be marked as well as all turnaround points. All three courses are out and back on railroad grade gravel path. The course has a slight (unnoticeable) uphill grade on the way out, with of course the same downhill grade on the return. There will be an aid station at each of the turnaround points (6.6 miles, 13.15 miles, 15.7 miles) and mile 4. Plan on carrying water and aid. This is not a USATF certified course and you can’t qualify for Boston, but it is at least the advertised distance.
The course starts a quarter of a mile west of the trail head off Fruitdale Rd & SR 20. It continues east along the Cascade Trail.
Drop bags can be dropped off at the start the morning of the race. Drop bags will be allowed at all aid stations. Please mark on your drop bags your bib #, which aid station it goes to (mile marker) and your name. They will not be returned until after the last runner has left each aid station, or participants may drive out to retrieve their bags. If participants do not retrieve their drop bags they will be donated, we will not mail them to you.
The official start time is 9:00 am. All runners starting at the official time will be eligible for awards. The early start time is 8:00. Runners opting to start early will not be eligible for awards. Runners starting early are doing so because they expect to finish after the course closure time, if they start at the official time.
Bibs and shirts can be picked up day of race starting at 7 AM. In general, it is a good idea to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start time. If you’re picking up your bib/shirt but not running, please let us know that you won’t be running.
Minimum finish times will be given to all early start runners running faster the following times. If you plan on running faster than these times you need to start at 9:00 am!
Registration closes February 14th 2018.
