Located on the eastern, and sunny side of the North Cascades - on the edge of the Chelan Sawtooth Wildereness, above the Methow River Valley - these courses offer great mountain trail running early in the year. You can expect fields of wildflowers, beautiful, snow-capped peaks of the Cascades in the distance, and stunning single-track. In partnership with Methow Trails and Sun Mountain Lodge, we are happy to offer a well supported and scenic race.
The 50K is a loop course and the 100K does two loops of the 50K. Both of the races will take place on Saturday, May 20th. The 25K will take place on Sunday, May 21st. We will also offer a Kids 1K on Sunday morning before the 25K.
Elevation breakdown for the 3 races:
100K: ~9600 ft of gain
50K: ~4800 ft of gain
25K: ~2500 ft of gain
As with any Rainshadow Running race, there will be plenty of wood-fired pizza, local beer, and live bluegrass music at the finish line.
Note: there will be no 50 mile distance this year.
