The Evergreen running season starts at Lord Hill!
Lord Hill Park has been a favorite early-season trail run for many runners, and 2024 will mark the race’s 19th year! Lord Hill Park is a regional country park nestled in Snohomish, Washington. With over 1,300 acres of wilderness, you could spend all day getting lost on miles of trails, but don’t worry, for this race we will keep you on the right course.
Course distances available are 5K, 10M, 20M, and 50K – pick your poison!
Lord Hill has got some of it all! Hills, neon greenery, buttery trails, creek crossings, excitement, and definitely some mud!
The 10M course will start off from the parking lot and immediately head up a steep hill. It’ll level off, and you’ll think you’re in the clear, until you round a corner and see Lord Hill, and that’s when you go, “Oh Lord!”. But after the initial climbs, the course levels off and you’ll be treated to some great, but wet trails (it is February after all!). You’ll have a fun quick creek crossing, get some views of the lake, and descend some easier trails towards the north end of the park.
A quick out-and-back climb takes you up to the Boardwalk Aid Station for refreshments. Back on the course, you’ll traverse the side of Devils Butte. A short, steep descent will take you down to a canyon, which you’ll next get to climb out of. Eventually, you’re back on the midway trail and back to the finish before you know it! The overall lap is about 10.3 miles, so will be about 30.9 for the 50K.
For those of you doing the 5k, don’t worry that you’re missing out! You still get to run/hike/crawl up Lord Hill too. Soon after the climb, the course will veer off the 10M, and relink back up with it on the Midway Trail. From there, it is a muddy but fun descent back to the Snohomish River and the finish!
