If you want a super challenging course but aren’t crazy about technical trails, this is the race for you. I attempted the 50k but dropped down to the marathon after encountering some real challenges with body temperature on the shady side of the mountain. Race production was excellent as always, and the course was fantastic.

Well-produced race with good aid stations and excellent volunteers. The course is never too steep to run, but the climbing really adds up and takes its toll over the miles. The trail was super fun to run on, even though it was rock hard on an icy-cold morning. Scenery is great if you like running through Northwest forest; no views. Other runners and I were sure the course was significantly long, as this was my fastest-feeling but slowest ever “50k.”

I loved what a “logical” course it was, basically just running the length of the lake. Super flat and fast. When I ran it it was all gravel, which I loved, but I think it’s now paved, putting a little more pounding on the legs but leading no doubt to faster times. Great production and support as always from Evergreen Trail Runs.

The course is pretty flat but takes you through tight turns on smooth, runnable trails. If you want to fly, get after it here. *I ran the 5-mile, but this review only had 5k or 10k as the short options*
