TRUE MOUNTAIN RUNNING IN THE PNW
A real mountain race to the summit of magnificent Mt. Ellinor in the Olympic Mountains. This is Beast of Big Creek.
We had fun last year, we're in a groove, we're doing it again.
Join us in Hoodsport, Washington on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula. Climb Mt. Ellinor with us and race the (almost historic now) Beast of Big Creek.
We're offering two distances, a 14 and a 5 miler.
For the summit loop you'll get to climb for over 5,200ft to the actual summit of Mt. Ellinor. And then, you'll get to bomb the whole way back down.
For the Forest loop you'll climb 1,200 ft. and get to run through lush forest along streams and over several fun wooden bridges.
Start and finish is at Big Creek Campground and we'll be offering limited camping for the weekend.
