Two Ultra (solo) runs of 50 Miles and 50 Km.
The name Mt Si Ultra is a little misleading. You run at the base of Mt Si, not up it! There will be both a 50 Km and 50 Mile run this year.
The course is on the Snoqualmie Valley Trail with some sections on country roads. The course provides views of the Cascade foothills and the Snoqualmie and Tolt Rivers. The 50 Mile course follows the Trail from the town of Snoqualmie north to Carnation. After a loop on the Tolt River Road the 50 Mile runners will be joined by the 50 Km runners and head south to North Bend. From North Bend the runners go to Rattle Snake Lake where they turnaround and head back to the finish at the high school. The Trail is old railroad grade. It has a gentle grade and is generally wide. The steepest climb is from North Bend to Rattle Snake Lake which is +450 feet over five miles.
There will be approximately 100 relay teams running the course simultaneously with the Ultra runs. For additional Ultra information e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
