We’re grateful to have the opportunity to bring one of the classic hill climb running events into the Vert Running Series. Martin Volken, owner of North Bend’s Pro Ski and Moutain Service started this event a few years ago and it has gained a regular following of vert seeking enthusiasts.
Starting and finishing at the Pro Ski and Mountain Service shop in the outdoor mecca town of North Bend brings the European feel that steep mountain running races should have. You look up from the shop and see Mt Si as the backdrop and chills go down your body as you prepare to take on our shortest, 17k, vert event of the series. The first couple of miles is flat and gives the legs an opportunity to warm up and once you get to the Little Si trailhead, it’s all uphill from there. In fact, 3,500 feet of vert will push your lungs to the limits. You’ll get a quick break at the summit to take a peek of the Snoqaulmie Valley below and then it’s quad smashing time down the Mt Si Trail and back into North Bend.
The fastest man and woman to the summit will be crowned King and Queen of Mt Si along with $100 cash each. The top 3 of each Vert Running Series division will receive awards, cash for Elites and everyone will receive a finishers medal.
