Cougar Mountain trail run series returns
The 10th annual Cougar Mountain Trail Running Series returns next month with the first of five races along the mountain’s 36 miles of trails. The series includes runs of five, 10, 13.1 and 31 (with a 20-mile alternative option) miles through August.
“Our longstanding partnership creates a fantastic race series for the running community, and greatly benefits all parks visitors with a cleaner and more enjoyable environment,” King County Parks Director Kevin Brown said.
The series gets underway on May 12 with a five-mile run — the first of five races on various stretches of Cougar Mountain’s scenic, 36-mile trail network. Runs of eight, 10, 13.1 and the final race of 31 miles (with an option to run a 20-mile race instead) are scheduled in the following months. Produced by Northwest Trail Runs and the Seattle Running Club (SRC), the race series not only introduces hundreds of people to Cougar Mountain’s 36 miles of fantastic trails, but it also benefits King County Parks.
Register in advance at any of three North Face stores: Downtown Seattle, University Village or Bellevue Square.
Day-of-race registration and start will be at the Sky Country trailhead on 166th Way Southeast.
