Acerca de Chuckanut 50K

In 1993, Doug McKeever and Richard West invited their ultrarunning friends to join them on a favorite training run around Chuckanut Mountain, south of Bellingham. Twenty or so people participated that first year and the feedback was sufficiently positive that the run has continued and grown into an annual ‘fun run.’ The original course was about 33 miles and had sections of highway and some private property. They settled on a 50 km (31.1 mile) route in 1995. In 2002 Doug and Richard decided that they would like to pass on the race directing responsibilities after putting on 10 very successful Chuckanut Mountain 50 km trail runs. Krissy decided to ensure the future of the Chuckanut 50 km as it was her first ultra experience in 2000. After a few years of threatening to change the course Krissy committed to the current course as a dedication to her friend Dave Terry who passed fall of 2009. 



The Chuckanut 50k is a lollipop course. The first and last 10k repeat on the interurban trail, smooth running to start and finish you off. The middle 30k is what this race is known for as you get to climb (5000ft), traverse and descend the beautiful Chuckanut Mountain Ridge.

RESUMEN

The Chuckanut 50k is a lollipop course. The first and last 10k repeat on the interurban trail, smooth running to start and finish you off. The middle 30k is what this race is known for as you get to climb (5000ft), traverse and descend the beautiful Chuckanut Mountain Ridge.

An out and back on the Interurban Trail make up the first 10 km as well as the last 10 km. Sandwiched between these relatively flat miles runners will enjoy a climb up the Fragrance Lake Trail, a descent to Cleator Road on 2 dollar trail, then climb Cleator Road (dirt, occasional traffic) to the beautiful Ridge Trail, Lost Lake Trail (muddy), Cyrus Gates Overlook, and back down to the Interuban Trail via Cleator Rd. and Fragrance Lake Rd. The Interurban Trail that warmed you up in the morning will be waiting to finish you off for your finish.
