Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
Many of the races in that area are planning with the realities of snow on the course. Canyons had to be rerouted quite a bit but, even races happening in June/July will still be dealing with snow on their trails.
The snow is a valid concern given our record breaking, historical snowfall in Lake Tahoe this winter.
Despite that, we’re extremely confident that the race will go on without any major impacts, as it did after big winters in 2017 and 2019 where we ran 80% or more of the entire course on snow.
