The 13.1 Course, 9:00 AM Start
Come run some of the most beautiful trails that Lake Padden Park and our area have to offer. An epic half marathon trail race that is both rewarding and challenging. The race starts along the scenic setting of beautiful Lake Padden and makes its way up and through the forested single track trails (see course map). A super fun place to run and race! Sorry, NO DAY OF RACE REGISTRATION.
We encourage everyone to carpool if at all possible as parking will be very limited.
There will be four aid stations along the course that will provide water, Gu2o and plenty of encouragement.
