The Pigtails Challenge takes place at Lake Youngs Watershed which is a rolling loop with 900 feet of elevation gain per loop. While this is not considered a technical mountain race, however don’t be fooled, 900ft per loop adds up considerably (ex. 100 milers do 10 loops x 900ft= 9,000ft … MORE

    The 50K event involved 3 loops of 9.4 miles plus one short out and back around Youngs Lake, the watershed for Seattle, WA. It was a shame that the whole lake is surrounded by a high chain-link fence with barbed wire over the top. Otherwise, I think it would be a pretty course. As it was, I kind of felt like I was running in a prison. The course was very hilly with long rolling hills. The weather is usually mild in Renton, WA though, and this year was no exception. We lucked out in that it was dry most of the day. Swag included a short-sleeved shirt, a butt, and a medal. It was inspiring to see the runners doing 100 and 200 miles, but this wasn’t one of my favorite races.
