When

Saturday, August 30th, 2014 starting @7:30am
Where The start is at Whistle Punk Trailhead on the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. The course will follow the Pacific Crest Trail almost exclusively except for a 3 mile out and back to 3 Corner Rock and the last 4 miles to the finish. The race finishes in the town of North Bonneville.
What

This is a scenic ultra with plenty of beautiful views of the Cascade Mountains and the Columbia River Gorge. On a clear day, a runner will be able to see Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Mt St. Helens and perhaps Rainier or Jefferson. On a not-so-clear day there will be plenty of huckleberries to stop and eat. The race is almost all on the Pacific Crest Trail so the trail is well maintained. The last 10 miles of the course has some technical sections (rocky) as it skirts the shoulder of Table Mt. It has two major climbs, but is generally descending in elevation to the Columbia River. The race is in fairly remote, mountainous terrain. It may be difficult for friends and family to get to places along the course to see you. We suggest that supporters have a Gifford Pinchot National Forest map and a vehicle with clearance.

Even though the Pacific Crest Trail is a virtual highway through the Cascades, the race will be very well marked with flagging, flour and mileage.
