With the recent coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreaks in Washington state and across the country, we have been closely monitoring the situation. Registration will continue to be open. At the present time, we have been given the green light for the Bigfoot events. We have no plans to cancel any of our Bigfoot races unless we are directed to do so by the permitting agencies. If that is the case, we will notify all registered runners.
Dates for the event
Friday, August 7, 2020 to Tuesday, August 11 at 6 p.m. 105 (4 day 9hr) cut off.
Join us on a 200 mile point to point exploration of the Cascade Mountains of Washington
The Bigfoot 200 is the first ever point to point 200+ mile race in the United States. The Bigfoot 200 is completely original from start to finish. Runners will explore such varied terrain as the otherworldly Volcanic Mount St. Helens (erupted in 1980), long mountaintop ridge lines with stunning forest, mountain and lake views, deep old growth forests as green and thick as a rainforest, misty mountain tops, cross countless streams and rivers and finally a long ridge line with views of the most massive mountains in the Cascade Range and into Randle, WA on their way to completing this massive, life changing event. They might even see a Bigfoot or two… it’s been known to happen in these areas.
Runners will be well supported on their journey with 14 full aid stations. Participants will have 6 sleep stations along the journey and a light breakfast aid station at the start location at Marble Mountain Sno-Park. This is not a stage race. Runners will be timed from the start to the moment they cross the finish line. Time taken for sleeping counts toward a participant’s overall time.
Details on the start
Runners will take a bus from the finish in Randle, WA (White Pass High School) to the start. Ride is 2.25hr to 2.5 hr drive to the start of the race at Marble Mountain Sno-Park. Runners may have crew drive them there as an alternative to taking the bus the race provides. Runners will be allowed to leave a bag of clothes/gear at the start to be transported to the finish. Race will provide a light breakfast at the start from 8am-9am.
