Course Description:
The run starts at the Easton Fire Station and runs along the John Wayne trail for about of a mile before it winds up towards Goat Peak on dirt roads and single track trails. From atop Goat Peak, you can actually see the entire 100 mile course if you know where to look and you will also see some breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier. This is about a 3000 foot climb and then you'll get to run downhill until it turns uphill again towards Blowout Mountain. Once you hit the junction of the Pacific Crest trail, it is a very nice, downhill 6 mile stretch until you reach Tacoma Pass. It is 8 miles from the Blowout Mountain aid station to the Tacoma Pass aid station and this is the farthest distance you will have to run between aid. You will then continue on the PCT for the next 30 or so miles, going over Dandy, Stampede, Yakima and Snoqualmie passes. There are a lot of small climbs and descents during this section but nothing too radical. The trail is easy to follow as it's the only one and it is heavily traveled. The Stampede Pass aid station is at mile 35.5 and you should have a drop bag here with a flashlight. You are REQUIRED to leave this aid station with a flashlight. Just past the Ollallie meadows aid station, you will descend down to the John Wayne Trail from the PCT. This is a rather limited-use trail and will be flagged and glowlighted heavily. (we have 200 glowsticks this year) It is also somewhat steep and there are several sections which will be roped for your safety. You can actually make it down without them but I encourage you to use the ropes to assist in your descent. Once you are on the John Wayne trail, it is about .25 mile to the entrance of the Snoqualmie Tunnel. The tunnel is 2.3 miles long and its about the darkest spot you will ever see. There may be some some "surprises" in the tunnel. Okay, not maybe but will be.

Once you exit the tunnel, it is about a mile or so the Hyak aid station which is just past the halfway point (mile 53) of the run. Pacers are allowed at any time from this location. This is a major aid station and a good spot to see how you are feeling. From here, the run stays on gravel/dirt roads over Keechelus Ridge (about a 2,000 foot climb and descent) till you reach the Kachess Campground aid station at mile 68. The course goes around the campground and then it follows Lake Kachess for 5 miles to the Mineral Creek aid station, mile 73. This 5 mile section is one of the toughest of the run being the trail is rocky, rooty and there are dozens of small climbs and descents. There are also several spots along this portion that a runner needs to be careful as a slip could wind you in the lake for a very, very cold swim. Once you have reached Mineral Creek, it is a gradual 2700 foot climb on gravel roads till you reach the aid station at No Name Ridge, mile 80. It is all trail from here until just before the end of the run and you will most likely find this section to be the toughest, although you will have commanding views of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area and of the Mount Stuart range. One of the runners termed this section-"The Cardiac Needles"-and with good reason. From the aid station at No Name Ridge to Thorp Mountain is about 5 miles but there are 4 or 5 climbs and descents. Once the Thorp Mountain aid station is reached, the volunteers will point you in the right direction to make the out and back trip to the lookout. Once you have reached the aid station at French Cabin Mountain, it is about 12 miles to the finish most of which is downhill. This section is also very scenic as it travels down the Silver Creek drainage and you may see goats and elk. No sweat, and all in under 32 hours!!
Course record: Course record was set in 2005 by Todd Walker in 19:54. Women's record is 22:43 by Sue Johnston, also on 2005.
Time Limit : 32 Hours

Aid Stations:You won't go hungry. Our aid stations will be fully stocked with the normal "ultra" food although several of the more remote ones won't have the selection that the main ones have. There will most likely be several types of electrolyte replacement drinks available for your choice----I hate Gatorade.
