THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
COVID 19 Update
As I am sure you are aware Covid 19 has shutdown many activities including running events in Washington State. Until we have clear direction to continue our events in 2020 registration has been "kind of" halted. If you want to run this event please sign up. You will be put on a waiting list. When and if we are given permit’s we will open up registration again. Those on the waiting list will be notified and asked to pay for the event. If we are given 3 weeks or less time notice either from Washington State or our permitting agencies shirts may not be available. We will have awards, beverages and food at all of our events. We will have strict social distancing rules at all of our events and will expect all participants and their families/friends to adhere to them.
Pigtails Challenge registration opens December 1st! Terry & Delores Sentinella co-owners of Northwest Endurance Events were offered the opportunity to continue Van Phan's tradition of putting on a fun, not too technical, party like atmosphere race. We are looking forward to bringing the same atmosphere we aspire to in our other events, Baker Lake 25k/50k, Kill Bill's Oyster Dome Challenge, Last Chance Marathon & The Woolley Runs. We hope you too enjoy the race!
Welcome to the Pigtails Challenge! The Pigtails Challenge takes place at Lake Youngs Watershed which is a rolling loop with 900 feet of elevation gain per loop. While this is not considered a technical mountain race, however don’t be fooled, 900ft per loop adds up considerably ( ex. 100 milers do 10 loops x 900ft= 9,000ft vertical) This is an excellent course for those wishing to train in a very well supported race. If you’re looking to attempt a new and longer distance, such as a first 100 miler, register now. For hardcore types who want take a bite at a longer distance such as 150 or 200 miler and test their mental fortitude, this is the perfect race. Since this is a loop course, the option to throw in the towel always looms in the background. It will test your perseverance to carry on lap after lap when you could easily call it a day, pop blisters, get warm, eat and have a beer.
