The Bridle Trails Race Series is held in the Fall every year on the East Side of Seattle, with several distance options, as well as team options, on a 5 mile, gently rolling loop, with races starting just before sunset, so it’s a race against the sun to finish. This is a favorite every year for the PNW runners since there are so many distance options and since you have aid every 5 miles, and as long as the course is fairly dry, you can run some fast times on it.
