Run - 13.1 miles
The run course takes athletes south of the park onto the roads of Enumclaw. Runners will generally run out and back on the same side of the road - listen to the direction of volunteers and watch the signs for direction.
When runners return to the park, you'll finish with a 1.4 mile loop around Deep Lake on a hard-packed trail.
6 Aid stations are spread throughout the course, every 1-2 miles. There will be sports drink, water, gels and bars. Check back for more specific nutritional information.
