I haven’t done one of those in awhile.

Here’s the gender split for this weekend’s skyrace in Hoodsport, WA above Lake Cushman in the Olympic Mountains:

For the two events combined 126 racers signed up, 51 are women or 40% of the overall runners.

  • Summit Race (Skyrace): 81 total runners, 23 female (28%)

The race is seeing an overall increase in signups of 23% compared to 2022. A 4% increase in women racers with the majority coming from the shorter distance. The Summit Race had an overall increase of 8%, but a drop of women runners by 4% points. The Forest Loop saw an overall increase of 56% and a women runner increase of 15% points.
