With views of the Cascade Mountains and the Icicle Creek area, the fall scenery is sure to please. The 10-mile route will be run on ski hill trails, new trails built in 2013, and trails in nearby Freund Canyon. This is a challenging and hilly course. The 8K will be run on the existing ski hill trail system. This course is also hilly and challenging, but is a great option for the beginning trail runner. Aid stations with water, energy drinks, and gels will be available on both courses, but runners are encouraged to bring their own water and necessary fuel.
Post-race there will be snacks available and awards will be given out to the top 3 male and female finishers in each distance. A 2K kids’ run will be held as well, with finisher prizes for each child.
Hosted by Run Wenatchee, this race is the last of the 4 races in the Wenatchee Valley Trail Run Series. This event is a fundraiser for the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club, which operates the ski hill.
