The Defiance 50k / 30k / 15k is scenic race that takes runners through the beautiful trails of Point Defiance, with over 700 acres of old growth forests and panoramic views of the Puget Sound.
The course is mostly single track and typically dry mid-October. Train for some hills but the course is 95% run-able.
Aid will be available at the Start / Finish. Each loop comes through the Start / Finish. An aid station is located at Ft Nisqually approximately 5.3 miles into the 10.3-mile loop. We recommend carrying one bottle of water.
On the course, you will see sweeping views of the Puget Sound, run on soft trails beneath 500-year-old giant cedars and firs in one of the top 20 urban parks in the United States.
