With one day to go to our 26th running, the trails are shaping up to be in great condition! The trail condition varies from good to muddy, and the route is now totally clear of snow. Our fearless founder Doug McKeever spent Thursday marking and clearing the upper loop with the classic Doug-style race signs.
We are expecting possible wet weather conditions all day Saturday (very PNW), so be sure to prepare and dress adequately. Each runner is able to leave one bag with dry clothes and other post-race necessities (a towel would be nice!) properly labeled with a bib number at the finish line. Note that we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items (this has never happened, but we have to say it anyway!).
There will be a warm shelter, changing rooms and open-sided tents in Fairhaven Park for runners to rest, clean up/change, relax, eat, drink and socialize after finishing the race. Please stay for the many post-race festivities and Awards Ceremony beginning at 2:30pm - details on the activities and celebrations are outlined on our Race Weekend Details page.
Please see the link to our Crew Directions under the RACE INFORMATION menu tab for information about race day crewing. We welcome crews at Aid Stations #1 & #5, both hosted in the Lost Lake Parking Lot. You will need your Discover Pass and note that parking is LIMITED. You can park at Larrabee State Park and carefully cross Chuckanut Drive to meet up with the trail.
See you soon!
