Distancia Ultramaratón - 50km

Acerca de Sun Mountain 50K

Take a step back into the Old West. Located on the North Cascades Scenic Byway in Washington’s magnificent Methow Valley, Winthrop is a old west town with wood boardwalks and western charm and is also the host of the annual Sun Mountain 50k race.

With its beautiful trails, and challenging-enough but not outrageously killer course, the Sun Mountain ultramarathon is the perfect race for anyone looking to do their first Ultra or wanting to set a PR. There is a very short stretch of pavement near the end, but other than that the route consists of fast hard-packed dirt trails, through wildflower-carpeted meadows and forest. And the cumulative elevation gain is relatively tame about half that of many other ultras.

Particularidades

Alojamiento

Plenty of lodging is available in Winthrop or Twisp, both of which are within a half-hour of the start/finish. Additionally, there are plenty of camping options in the area.

Servicios después de la carrera

After the race, hang out with friends while eating local pizza, drinking local beer, and listening to live bluegrass.

Puestos de avituallamiento

There will be three aid stations (some of which you'll run through twice). Aid stations always feature plenty of water, potato chips, PB&J, fresh fruit (oranges, bananas, grapes), chocolate/candy, GU gels and GU Brew, tortillas for gluten-free folks, and tasty Trail Butter inside those tortillas. We'll also have Coke and Ginger Ale. You can also pack your preferred calories in drop bags, and/or carry them with you along the course.

Medallas de finalización

Every male and female race winner receives a one-of-a-kind race print, and a hand-etched growler.
