The race is a loop. You will start and end at the Palouse to Cascades State Park - Hyak Trailhead parking lot (formally the Iron Horse State Park Trail). The course is pretty flat. You will start ~.5 mile outside the tunnel, run approximately one mile in, turn around, and run one mile out, back to the start. LED lights will help illuminate the tunnel and race course.
Additional Tunnel details and directions can be found here: Palouse to Cascades Trail - The Tunnel
Using Google Maps search for "Hyak Parking Lot, Snoqualmie Pass, WA 98068." Traveling East or West on I-90 you will take exit 54.
We have secured two parking lots. There is parking available at the Hyak Trailhead lot. All vehicles entering the state park must have a Discover Pass. These are sold onsite (and can be purchased the day of) or online (http://www.discoverpass.wa.gov/). Overflow parking is also available at the Summit East Lower Lot, which is a 5min walk to the event.
Be prepared for extreme darkness and cold temperatures. For this event LED lights will help illuminate the path. The tunnel is chilly, the average temperature (year-round) is ~50 degrees, so we encourage you to wear a long sleeve shirt or light jacket. The ground is made of compacted gravel.
To ensure the safety of our runners/ walkers this a bike-free event. Strollers are allowed. Since it's a public park we are required to keep the tunnel open to the public therefore bikes may be present but will not be officially part of the event.
This is a kid-friendly event. Children 4 and under are free (and did not need to register), but also do not receive a Glow Gear Package.
Animals are not allowed due to the number of participants and event conditions.
