A remote and challenging course with over 6700 ft of elevation gain and loss circumnavigating Mt St Helens, all on rugged, single-track trails covering 50+K’s. All but 4.5 miles are on the Loowit Trail. You will travel over lava and pumice fields, crossing rivers, through the blast zone as well as through dense forests.

Due to the difficulty of this race, runners are required to have completed a 50K prior to race day. You can expect your finish time to be more like a 50-miler than a 50K. This is a tough race, but you are tough too.

The 25K gives runners a real Mt. St. Helens experience without having to run all the way around the volcano. This course includes some of the iconic features of the longer race – boulder fields, the Loowit trail, jaw-dropping views of the mountain and the surrounding Cascades, and lush forests. There’s 3,200 feet of gain and loss.
