Mount Spokane

The challenging and popular Mt. Spokane vertical challenge consists of three races, a 10k, 25k, and 50k trail run. Come join us and run through the scenic Mt. Spokane State Park. Out of all our races this is my favorite course! Be prepared for tons of single track, climbing, awesome views, more climbing, and an amazing post-race meal! Mt Spokane does have limited camping on a first come first serve basis, they are small and do not have shower facilities.  


Like last year we will have food provided by The Local Deli. The post-race tailgate will include 6-foot subs and salads from the Local Deli and a great beer selection from Slate Creek and Daft Badger breweries.


Courses:                                                                                          


The 10K is all new with less elevation gain and loss, all on the XC ski routes. Click here for the 10K Map and description.


The 25K course: All new! We incorporated more of the State Park, including a decent down to the Bear Creek Lodge. Then you climb all the way to Mt Kit Carson, Day Mountain and eventually Mt Spokane. From the top, you take a new route across the top of the Mountain so we can avoid the paved section of the Summit road. Aid stations are at mile: 4.4, 8.2, 11 and 13. 
And include Nuun Hydration and Clif nutrition
With over 4600' of elevation gain and loss, this one will leave a mark!!! And you will earn the extra points for the series. Don't forget you are running at an elevation close to 5000' so the air is thinner than you might be used to. Make sure you hydrate and consume enough calories for this EPIC course!!!

The 50K course: Can you say EPIC!!! So this is something that is entirely new to any race at Mt. Spokane. Your first 25K is very runnable, utilizing the XC ski trails your ups and downs are mild. But you are above or close to an elevation of 5000' so the air is thinner than you might be used to. Okay, the second 25k is not as mild. We incorporated more of the state park, including a decent down to the Bear Creek Lodge. Then you climb all the way to Mt Kit Carson, Day Mt and eventually Mt Spokane. From the top, you take a new route across the top of the Mountain so we can avoid the paved section of the Summit road. 
Don't forget you are running at an elevation close to or above 5000' so the air is thinner than you might be used to. Make sure you hydrate and consume enough calories for this EPIC course!!! 
Aid stations are at mile: 1.7, 9.6, 15.2, 20, 24, 26.5 and 28.5. And include Nuun Hydration and Clif nutrition. With the elevation gain and loss at over 7900' you will earn the extra points for the series. Click here for the 50K map


Time limits for the 50K: You must reach aid station #5 the Kit Carson aid station (mile 23) by 1:30 pm. And the summit of Mt Spokane aid station (mile 28) by 3:00 pm. I think this is generous at a 16 min per mile pace. Come prepared! If you do not make these times you will be DNF and given a ride back to the start/finish at the Selkirk lodge. I’m not trying to be mean, this is a safety thing. If you are concerned about these cutoffs, you need to contact the race director.
