In true fat-ass style this is an unsupported race. Definition: no cost, no time limit, no whining! There will be minimal support provided so please make sure you are very comfortable running/hiking the distance you have committed to. The 50k has nearly 10k of elevation gain. The trail will be well marked and maps will be provided. All distances will start at the Grouse Vista Trailhead to Silver Star Mountain. 100% single track on some of the most beautiful terrain that SW Washington has to offer!
Local time: 4:47 AM
*New in 2014 and continuing in 2015: In the spirit of recycling we asked that all participants bring an old race bib to ensure that everyone is safe and accounted for. Please also bring anything else you will need to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable day on some tough trails surrounded by beautiful mountains.
**Remember this is a fat ass race. Meaning: you will be responsible for carrying any/all nutrition to move your body the full 31 miles. The handful of competitors that have completed the full course in previous years spent 7-12 hours on their feet, please be prepared. There will be stations to refill your water and if you're lucky there might be a little food, but do not count on it.
50K start time: 8:00AM
