The Pacific NW continues to challenge Chuckanut 50k runners & volunteers with its varying weather. It is part of the mystique of this event and really what makes for the best race stories in the weeks and months following. We encourage everyone to come prepared for all weather and created the following list to help you with your race day packing.
The forecast (as of Thursday) for Saturday, March 21 predicts 50% chance rain, 54degree high and 40degree low. The ridge is always a bit cooler and exposed to wind. Running with a light jacket is highly recommended. Whether you are from the PNW or not, everyone knows that the weather is fickle and is not dependable. Please come prepared for all conditions.
Your race bib#. DO NOT FORGET TO CHECK IN RACE MORNING!
UltraCup or waterbottle or hydration pack - Our aid stations will have cola, water and EFS Electrolyte drink available. You bring the cup or vessel to drink it from. We are a zero cup race.
Bowls, Mugs and Spoons - We put together the necessary bits to create a supported race atmosphere yet are constantly working against consumptive routines the best we can. We have a ZERO WASTE Race Goal. To continue our efforts started in 2013, we look forward to providing hot soup from The Book Fare Cafe, bread from Great Harvest and coffee from Tony's Coffee in YOUR BOWL.
