Review

The race is well organized, not gimmicky, a runner's race. The scenery was unbeatable, and of course the overall downhill was a plus. I loved it. Definitely in my top 5 favorite marathons!


Race Tips

I ended up not using, or needing, the gaiters they recommend. I was definitely happy to have my headlamp during the tunnel, and it was not a big deal to bag it and send it to the finish when the tunnel was done.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

We stayed at Hilton Garden Inn Issaquah, very clean and the town is pretty.

Review

2.3 miles through a pitch dark tunnel, 5 trestle bridges, old railway bed with 2% downhill grade for the entire point to point marathon. Awesome support and food at the end.


Race Tips

It's sand\gravel\dirt but trail runners aren't necessary. Not technical. Try out the sports drink before hand (it hates me)


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Edgewick Inn in North Bend is cheap, clean and walking distance to the pick up point to bus you to the start line.

Review

One of the coolest courses I've ever run on, this was my first full but I have run several races at other distances, it was fun, fast and beautiful.


Race Tips

**headlamp** was a big help, utilize drop bags at end of the tunnel to shed everything you don't want to lug down the mountain. MAKE SURE YOU TRAIN ON SOME LONG DOWNHILL RUNS, your quads will thank you


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Show up to the buses early..


5 / 5 Stars
