Hey, why not be transparent: Here’s the breakdown for my own race, the Beast of Big Creek which is happening July 23rd by Lake Cushman in the Olympic Mountains just above Hoodsport, Washington.

There are a total of 99 runners registered for the two races. 36 are women or 36% of the total.

Broken down among the two distances:

  • Summit race (14M): 74 total runners, 24 women (32%)
  • Forest race (6M): 25 total runners, 12 women (48%)

Sure, it’s a small race, but I’m proud of that split.
