Registration options and XTERRA series
Soaring Eagle offers 5 mile, 10 mile, Half Marathon, and Marathon options. The 5-mile and Half Marathon distances will be part of the 2013 XTERRA Trail Run Washington Series, and the Half Marathon finishers will earn series points and a chance to qualify for XTERRA Nationals.
All courses start and finish adjacent to the main parking lot. The routes have rolling hills that are mostly short or moderate in grade, and none of the courses are very hilly by trail running standards.
The 5.1 mile course is about 40% along the wide, woodchip-covered main trail, and the remainder of the course is on narrower trails. Some of the narrow trails are smooth and straight or gently meandering, while others are more sinuous and bumpy. This course would be a good introduction for a newcomer to trail running, due to its friendly climb profile.
The 10 mile course is mostly on the narrow-tread trails, with only about 3 km along the wide main trail. This route will traverse most of the trails and take runners to all corners of the park.
The Half Marathon, 20 mile, and 50km courses use multiples of the loops described above. Half Marathon (most of 10 mi loop with cutoff then 1x 5.1 mi), 20 mile (2x 10 mi) and 50km (1.2 mi and 3x 10 mi).
For more details, including the location of aid stations and driving directions, visit the Soaring Eagle Park trail run page at Northwest Trail Runs.
Northwest Trail Runs provides courses that are clearly marked and precisely measured, we record a finish time for all finishers, and we post results to the website after the event. Longer courses will have aid stations, and there will be refreshments at the finish.
