THE TOUGHEST 12-HOUR OUT THERE. (BE AFRAID. BE VERY AFRAID.)
This race is tough, and also ridiculously fun. We have both a 12-hour, and a 6-hour option, and registration for 2020’s event will open the day of our Cottontail 6- & 12-hour, so (festive drum-roll, please!): April 11th! The FOURTEENTH annual Carkeek 12-(& 6-)Hour will be on Saturday, October 24th, 2020!
With gorgeous views of the Sound, varied terrain (rolling trails, steep stairs, a section or two that might generously be called “flat‚Äù), and a festive atmosphere, we think this is a race you (and your family, and friends, and well-behaved, leashed dogs) will just keep coming back to, one 1.93-mile (or .54 mile, for the short loop) lap at a time. Run for twelve hours, run for six. Run as few or as many hours as you like!
On top of being HEAPS OF FUN, our races are also low-impact: You won’t find any paper products at Carkeek, and we support local businesses (as much aid as possible will come from the Seattle area). Speaking of aid, we’ll have some of the best aid out there. We’ll be partnering with local and like-minded businesses to bring you awesome foodstuffs and prizes to help keep you running lap after lap, all day long. We also provide reusable mugs for you to use throughout the day, though if you have a favorite coffee mug, you’re of course welcome to bring your own.
