Welcome to Washington's 2nd oldest and classic ultra! Join fellow runners on the 21th annual Cle Elum Ridge 50k and 6th annual 25k. The Cle Elum Ridge trail races boast beautiful scenery along with challenging terrain. There's approximately 7000 feet of elevation gain for the 50k and 3700 feet of gain for the 25k.
5:30am - Check-in for both races begins
7:00am - 50k Start (no early start, sorry!)
9:00am - 25k Start
The race courses is a loop that starts and finishes at Taneum Junction and uses the 1326 and 1377 trails. The 25k starts and finishes it's loop the same way and from the same place but takes a short cut by running down the Forest Service Road (dirt) 114. The aid stations are spaced apart a bit, so please plan ahead and make sure you bring enough food/water. We recommend carrying 2 water bottles or more! For the 50k you'll begin by going 9.6 miles to the first aid. Aid #2 is at mile 14.5, then there's a pretty big gap between full aid stations: 10 miles. But there is a water only station during that gap at mile 21. For the 25k, we have 2 aid stations that you share with the 50k, one at mile 7.6 and one at mile 10.2. Please be prepared to run 8 miles after the last aid station to the finish. We will have lots of food and drink at the finish line! SCROLL DOWN for revised maps/Aid Stations (as of 9/4/13).
All finishers will receive finisher's medal!
