The Needles 50k is one burly, beautiful loop connecting Domerie Divide, Thomas Mtn, French Cabin Mtn, Little Joe Lake, Thorp Mtn, Kachess Ridge (aka The Cardiac Needles), and Silver Creek. This course is tough. About 10,000' of climb. Due to access, there will only be 2 limited aid stations. Think graduate level mountain run.
Local time: 1:21 AM
Time Limits: 10 hours for regular (8am) starters, 12 hours for early (6am) starters.
Prerequisite: 50 mile trail run in 12 hours or less.
Registration includes two nights camping at the Silver Ridge Ranch start/finish. Follow our facebook page for event info and updates.
Please note: registration for the 25k is delayed as that distance is intended as a drop-down option for 50k runners who decide to shorten their day. We welcome 25k runners should there be space come May 1st. Email us with any questions.
