Join us for a run at Squak Mountain, located next to Issaquah. Squak features cushy, well maintained trails, and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains! With 3650 feet of elevation gain for the half-marathon and 8300 feet of elevation gain for the 50km run Squak Mt. is arguably one of the toughest challenges for a runner to find in the Northwest!
The course starts and finishes at the main Squak Mountain Trailhead (see directions tab). Parking is limited, so registrations will also be limited to 70 runners. We will post updates on how many spots will remain until the race fills up.
We offer a Half-Marathon (13.1 Mile) and 50k course options. There will be plenty of aid stations and the courses are well marked.
Looking forward to seeing you out there!
The half marathon starts off with the blue lollipop loop to the first aid station at the top of squak mountain. Then it follows the green loop counterclock wise back to the aid station, and finished up with the purple route back to the start finish. The 50km runners will then repeat the 13.1 mile course, but will do the green loop twice the second time around. The half-marathon has 3650 feet of elvation gain, while the 50km course has 8300 feet of gain.
