Grand Ridge

Issaquah , WA 50 Kilometers

This Event Took Place Sat. Nov 17, 2012

Description

Join us for a run at Grand Ridge Regional Park in the middle of the summer, when the Northwest is at its finest!

The park is a well hidden jewel that sits right opposite of Tiger Mountain off I-90. The groves of western red cedar trees and sword ferns in the central part of the ridge provide a combination of lush green shades and soft, foliage covered trails that feels great under the feet. This run will cover all the way down the north side of the park to give you a view of the most beautiful ares in the park.

The course starts and finishes at Grand Ridge Trailhead, just off of I-90 Exit 20 (see directions tab). The course starts off on a wide double track until you head north into the hills on the recently built singletrack trails. These are some of the nicest trails we have encountered in the northwest and keep incredibly dry even during wet times.

We offer 5 Mile, Half-Marathon (13.1 Mile) and 50k course options. There will be plenty of aid stations for the 50km option, and you will do two 15.5 Mile lollipop loops, covering the park from south to norht. Start/Finish will have the usual spreads you will encounter at all our races.

Looking forward to seeing you out there!
