Point Defiance routes

Icon
The course is a 16.6-kilometer loop through old growth forest. For the 15k runners will complete this loop once, for the 30k runners will run the loop twice and for the 50k runners will run the loop three times. Each loop will come by the start - finish.

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.
