Small Race Preview: 2018 Stub Stewart Trail Challenge (Buxton)

The 2015 Stub Stewart Trail Challenge was the first real trail race I ever did. The field is limited to just 100 people so there were times I felt completely alone in the woods and forgot that I was running for any reason other than just fun. It was cold, hilly, muddy, and amazing.

The 6.25-mile loop course is well marked by a team that clearly loves runners and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Every finisher gets a medal and a cheer from the finish line volunteers. Plus the overall male and female winners receive a bonus prize for their speedy work in the mountains. And then snacks and drinks before you head back toward home. Or might I suggest taking advantage of the spring day and parking spot by sticking around for a little while to enjoy the mountain views and additional hiking trail options.
