Liberty Lake trail is an 8-mile loop located near Liberty Lake, Washington that features waterfalls, a creek bed, bridges, single track, and switchbacks with canopied cedar groves. The start and finish are an out and back, runners will hit the trail counter-clockwise this year, the first 1.5 miles are mostly flat with double and single track. Then you will reach the bottom EDITH and she is a tough one, one mile with an average grade of 18% and 800’ of elevation gain. The route levels out a bit and becomes a rolling course for the next 1.4 miles, then you climb again! This climb is 1.4 miles and 500’ of elevation gain, just before you reach the top you will arrive at the Boy Scout cabin and a well-stocked Aid station with gels, chips, water, Gatorade, and cookies. Now the fun and fast descent, running past waterfalls, crossing bridges and running through an old cedar grove. Be careful your quads will be weak when you reach the bottom. The last 1.5 miles will not be easy after all that! This trail run is rated as difficult. Post-race party includes a pancake feed with sausages and typical post-race refreshments :)

Thank you for a choosing Trail Maniacs. We are a small, grassroots event company owned and directed by one person. Our race entry fees are non-refundable; however we want to provide an opportunity for our runners to still participate in our series should you need to withdraw from a particular event, so we have designed the following deferral policies to support for our runners.
- Bibs are non-transferable to another runner under any circumstance.
- You can move down in race distances up until the day of the event & no credits will be issued if you move down.
If you are unable to attend an event and you notify us more than 60 days out, we can arrange a 100% deferral of fees, towards another event in our series, providing it is NOT SOLD OUT. This deferral is only redeemable within one calendar year from the time you contact us. You can use this deferral policy towards any other race or the same race one year later. They can also only be deferred once, to a single event and multiple requests will be declined.
If you are unable to attend an event and you notify us more than 30 days out, we can arrange a 50% deferral of fees, towards another event in our series, providing it is NOT SOLD OUT.
