Course Details
This rolling race course will include primarily single track and double track park trails, with some dirt roads, gravel driveways, grass shoulders and short sections of paved road.

The elevation change is less than 750 feet per loop (exact elevation for the entire 50k to be provided soon). Though don’t let that fool you – while generally short in distance, there are some nice steep hills in the mix on this course. Very little of this course qualifies as flat.

Technically the trails are mostly well groomed and free of obstacles and hazards. That said there are sections of the trail where footing will be challenged by roots, downed logs, or quick turns and sharp changes in elevation. Staying alert is important.

Parking
10 milers will be asked to park in one of the parking lots along 103rd or 188th – so that they can leave before the 50k run is complete and not impact runners.
50k runners can park in the O Space parking lot (nearest start/finish area). If you plan to finish/leave early – then one of the parking lots along 103rd or 188th is your best bet.
Please consider carpooling – as parking is limited.

Getting to Vashon Island
Vashon Island is only accessible by ferry boat. You can walk or drive onto the Washington State Ferries that service Vashon. We recommend you drive or plan to carpool if you walk on. The ferry is a really fun way to commute to Vashon. You can get out of your car and enjoy the beautiful crossing of the Puget Sound. But it is important that you plan ahead so that you are not stuck in the ferry line or on the boat as race time approaches!
