USATF certified course and a BOSTON QUALIFIER. Gradual 2000 foot net drop from start to finish with NOT ONE HILL on the whole course. A potential PR and/or your last chance to qualify for Boston. Jack and Jill starts through the coolest 2.5 mile tunnel. We suggest that you wear a headlamp or carry a flashlight. After you exit the tunnel, you can toss your flashlight or head lamp and volunteers will have them for you at the finish. Enjoy a beautiful 'very gradual' downhill run for the next 24 miles on Washington's John Wayne Trail on a hard packed dirt road. This is sure to be a favorite all time marathon.
Marathoners are encouraged to bring flashlights or headlamps for the tunnel portion of the run. It is very dark and your safety is our number 1 concern.
