Race Details

Lessons Learned from Race Reports

  • No race reports – it’s a first year race
  • Lots of exposed trail, so be ready for sun and heat, and other elements if the weather is windy or rainy
  • Aid stations are fairly far apart, so be sure to carry enough fueling, especially water
  • Very dry conditions on the trail and lots of ash (being near Mt. St. Helens) so be ready for hot, dry, dusty conditions
