FUN IN THE SUN (MOUNTAIN)!
Located on the east side of the North Cascades - on the edge of the Chelan Sawtooth Wildereness, above the Methow River Valley - these courses offer great mountain trail running early in the year. The sun shines an average of 5 out of 7 days in the Methow Valley year-round, and for race-day, and (if historic races are any indication) you can expect sun and lots of it come race-day. Even if it rains, you won't find another 25K as fun and laden with wildflowers as this one!.
In 2020, the 25K & Kids 1K Fun Run will be Sunday, May 17th. The Kids 1K will start at 9:30 AM, and the 25K will start at 10:00 AM
The start and finish area is located at the Patterson Lake Cabins, about 15 minutes from Winthrop, WA. Runners will finish right on the lawn in front of the lake which will be perfect for cooling yourself off when you complete your race! As with any Rainshadow race, there will be plenty of wood-fired pizza, craft beer, and live bluegrass music to soothe those tired muscles! Join our party in the Methow, with a little running thrown in for good measure, and when you go home, you'll be wondering: Why run anywhere else?
Lottery and Registration
Due to how quickly the race sells out, registration for this race is a lottery. All runners interested in participating in the race will need to register on Ultrasignup between September 17th and 24th, 2019. Once the lottery is closed, we will draw names and announce the entrants list no later than September 30th. No credit cards will be charged until the lottery closes and names are drawn. If your name is not drawn, there is no charge to your credit card.
We offer a group option for runners who want to ensure everyone in their party gets into the race together. Everyone interested in being part of a group registration will register via Ultrasignup and will select the GROUP option. You will type in the group name your party has selected. That group will get ONE ticket for the lottery. If the group name is drawn, everyone registered under that group name will get into the race. If that group name is not drawn, NO ONE registered under that group name will get into the race. This option was created for those who might be traveling from far away and would not want to run the race if their friend/family member did not get in.
Runners can cancel their registration and receive a percentage of their entry fee back as a credit towards a future Rainshadow race. Runners also have the option to transfer their bib to another runner. All bib transfers must be completed by both parties on Ultra Signup at least 7 days PRIOR to race day.
