This event has been postponed from Apr 25, 2020. A new date has yet to be determined.
Our race is cancelled for April 25th, 2020 but we are working on rescheduling later on this year. More to come as we sort this out.
Old School 50 Mile Ultra and 25K Mini with Bargain Entry Fees!
Sign up before April 15th! Price increases for the 25K to $35 and 50 Miler to $65. This year there will be a 50 mile ultra and a 25 km (~16 mile) trail race. 2019 will mark the 15th year of the Capitol Peak races in Capitol Forest.
Every runner will need to print, sign, and bring a DNR waiver with them to check-in on race-day.
The race is held in the State Forest so every vehicle will need a Discovery Pass: discoverpass.wa.gov. To avoid getting a ticket your DISCOVER PASS must be visible on your windshield.
“Capitol Forest is a "working forest", so course revisions are possible to accommodate the "work". For updates please check here and at Capitol Peak 50mile/25K website!. COURSE DESCRIPTION: Both the 50-mile and 25K start and finish from Falls Creek Trailhead. The race will feature some of the most rugged and serene single track trails and grinding sections of gravel road, and, depending on toss-of-the-coin for weather in April, spectacular views. With 3,923 feet of elevation gain in the 25 K, and over 11,237 feet of elevation gain in the 50-mile, you will work to earn your finish. Both the 50 mile and 25K, will complete the course on a 7-mile, serene, descent from the Wedekind aid station to the finish at Falls Creek Trailhead. Download very accurate course maps from our website.
