Don’t let the distance fool you! This single loop course features almost 4,000′ of elevation gain(and loss), including one of the toughest climbs of any 25K – a 2,250′ grind to the summit of Mt Zion over 3.7 miles. If you can run like a deer and climb like a mountain goat, then this course is for you! The forest road sections will test your leg speed then the grind to Mt Zion will challenge your fortitude . Not sure you’re ready for a 50K? This is a great course to test your ability to step up to run the 50K next year!
This is a graduate level 50K!
Classic PNW trails take you to one of the most popular summits on the Olympic Peninsula-Mount Townsend at 6,260′!

From there, single-track and forest service roads deliver you to your last big grind of the day, a 2,250′ climb to the top of Mt Zion.
This single loop course boasts an impressive 9,285′ of climbing and is 74% single-track.
