Dash Point does not disappoint! This run has all the quintessential PNW sights: sandy beaches, and active wildlife. The course winds through Dash Point State Park — a 398-acre camping park in the Pacific Northwest with 3,300 feet of saltwater shoreline on Puget Sound. The start/finish area has many picnic/BBQ stations and is right by a nice long stretch of sandy beach. This is a great place to bring the whole family for a fun day by the water.
In addition to running, the park is an ideal location to observe wildlife, kayak, skimboard, or just relax and enjoy the sandy beach.
Course distances available are 10km and 13.1mi (half-marathon).
Detailed Race Description:
Dash Point is a super fun collection of trails situated right on the Puget Sound. A great place to hang out on the beach once you’ve completed your race!
The course starts near the beach and slowly climbs up and away from the water. The trails are well maintained and are great buttery single track to run. Around mile 1.25, those in the Half Marathon will have a separate short lollipop loop they’ll do extra on the course. At mile 2.25, you will hit the high point of the course at the Nightcrawler Aid Station. From here, it’s mostly rolling downhill back towards the finish. There is another lollipop loop to complete as well before you end the lap. The loop is 10k, so those in the Half will do a second loop (including a second “extra” lollipop as they did in the first).
