Waitlist Movement - Withdrawal Deadline

For those of you on the waitlist we hope you've been training! It looks like we should be able to move everyone in to the race before the weekend!  

If you are already registered but now unable to attend the race we will be issuing refunds less a $25 processing fee. The deadline for this refund is THIS WEDNESDAY February 22. Please let the race director know at chuckanut50@gmail.com before 5pm, Wednesday, February 22.

If you pre-ordered a shirt, we will be happy to send it to you. We do not allow entry roll-overs or transfers and are unable to issue refunds after this date.

Course Update

For those of you training on the Chuckanut 50k course there are currently a few closures. We are working with our permitting agencies to stay updated on the trail conditions. We learned last week that there was a significant slide on the lower section of Fragrance Lake Road near Burnout Rd turnoff. The parks are working on a repair timeline and are hopeful to complete before this year's Chuckanut 50k. There are no route adjustments at this time, but it remains possible that we may have to make changes for race day, 

Sadly, just last night there was a fatal plane crash on Cleator Rd. The park asked us to let our participants know that the road is currently closed to all traffic. Respectfully avoid the site of the crash and surrounding area. We will continue to update as necessary. We continue to plan for race day on March 17.


Check out our Finish Line!

The Chuckanut 50k Finish line in Fairhaven Park is going to be busy! We've got Food Trucks, changing rooms, heated hang out areas AND... Massage! Theron Eirish has been at the finish line of the Chuckanut 50k nearly as long as RD Krissy Moehl. He is a huge supporter of this race!

Theron will be providing post race massage for $1/minute.

You can sign up Friday night at packet pickup, or as you cross the finish line.  Post race massage can speed recovery time, prevent injury and treat physical issues before they worsen.
