Located on the eastern, and sunny side of the North Cascades – on the edge of the Chelan Sawtooth Wilderness, above the Methow River Valley – the Sun Mountain 50M, 50K & 25K courses offer great mountain trail running early in the year. You can expect fields of wildflowers, beautiful, … MORE

    This was my 3rd Rainshadow 25K, and it was the easiest of the 3, but was by no means easy. There are some good climbs, but they all seemed reasonable. The views are great, and there are lots of wildflowers all around. I was also surprisingly happy that it turned out cloudy on Sun Mountain – perfect running weather with the occasional mist to keep things cool. As always, the production was flawless (at least from my perspective). I’ll definitely continue to do more Rainshadow races! If you like a race with lots of swag- you should know that you’ll have to buy it yourself at the merchandise table after the race (or pay up front for the shirt when you register, but be warned, they will not send you the shirt if you don’t make it to the race… found this out the hard way).

    In terms of location: Winthrop is a great little town to spend a couple days in- be sure to check out the Old Schoolhouse Brewery and get there early to grab a table right next to the river on the back patio. If you are lucky, you’ll catch a great band while you eat. This race is about a 4-hour (beautiful drive) from Seattle. There are lots of reasonably priced options for hotels. I highly recommend this 25K!
