Ran this is both 2016 (and 2015-slightly different course). This race is right in my backyard so it's super easy to train for, and a great value if you register early on. IF you are new to ultras or want to try your first 50miler, I can't think of a better race. It also can serve as a great training run for something a bit more sinister. In 2016 the course was all on the Snoqualmie Valley Trail and connected up to the Iron Horse Trail. It's an out and back course with a pretty steady but gradual hill climb from about 6 to 25 at the turn around. The terrain is mild and not technical, it's all reclaimed railroad bed so dirt and compact gravel for the most part. The scenery is great as you run through lowland wooded areas and then start to march yourself up the foothills of the Cascades-great views, woods and a few bridges along they way. Worth grabbing a pic or two as you go. After the turnaround you can really cruise in the downhill section and recruit a few muscles differently than the stead hill climb. The staff and volunteers were the best-super nice and always cheering you on. The aid stations were well stocked with water, nuun and a variety of salty and sweet snacks. The post race was great also with a bevy of items to snack on, or if you prefer some massage tables awaited you for 15min sessions (small fee). Myself, had just finished Boston 6 days earlier and was pretty beat down, but the atmosphere was great, grabbed a massage and celebrated with some sweet treats at the end-worked for me! I enjoy this race and will run it again. Next year, I'm thinking to be on the volunteer side to give back to what I've enjoyed.
