50 K, 22 Miles, Half Marathon
Middle Fork River
North Bend, Washington
Click to go to the web site for the Middle Fork 50k, 22-mile, and Half Marathon in North Bend, Washington

The start is at the Middle Fork Trailhead, and the courses take runners up the Middle Fork Trail to the Dingford Creek bridge, to Goldmyer Hot Springs, and further up the valley for the 50k, then back. Both courses have modest climb, since the route follows the river, with a few meanders of the trail up and down the valley slope. The valley features views of the rugged mountain slopes, old-growth trees, majestic cliffs, lush forest, the swiftly-flowing Middle Fork Snoqualmie River, and perhaps some birds fishing along the river. Detailed route descriptions are below in the Details tab.

There are now THREE course options for this event:

50 km (31.1 miles)
22 miles (36.1 km)
Half Marathon (13.1 miles)
This event is being conducted under permit from the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. A Northwest Forest Pass is required for parking. Carpooling is encouraged.
