An evening of trail racing: The Bridle Trails Winter Running Festival includes 5-mile, 10-mile, 15-mile, 50K solo, 50K pair, and 50K relay races. It takes place at Bridle Trails State Park in Kirkland on the second Saturday of the year! Races start at 3:00 pm. YES, races begin in the daylight and will slowly move into darkness!

All runners will use the same 5.1-mile loop of trails, mostly going clockwise around the perimeter of the park. The route will be marked with orange and white streamers, as well as yellow glow sticks after dark. Some sections of the trail are rough, rutted, or muddy, and it is Winter, so please watch your footing, and expect to get wet and dirty. Sunset is at 4:41pm, and it will get dark under the forest canopy pretty quickly after that. If there is a good chance you'll be on the course after that time, please bring a headlamp with enough battery life to get you to the finish!

Carpool! Carpool! Carpool! 
Please note a DISCOVER PASS is needed to park in the parking lot. Only carpools that have a Discover pass will be allowed to park in Bridle Trails lot. We are working on a second parking lot nearby and will update the parking information as soon as we have confirmation.
