Registration opens TODAY for The Light at the End of the Tunnel Marathons (North Bend, WA) – The perfect BQ race!

Let’s be honest – running a BQ is on all of our minds in some capacity. And if you’re anything like me, you are gonna need a few things to break right in order to get that elusive BQ. So why not set yourself up as best as you can by running a race like the Light at the End of the Tunnel Marathons. This is a series of three races this summer and fall in North Bend, WA:

  • Tunnel Marathon: June 14th
  • Tunnel Vision Marathon: August 16th
  • Tunnel Light Marathon: September 20th

They are all on point-to-point that is is one of the fastest courses in the country (40% BQ’d in 2019!). A consistent downhill grade and low starting elevation makes it the perfect set-up to get that elusive Boston Qualification. And not only is it fast, it’s pretty dang scenic as well, with waterfalls, mountains, and even running through a cool, dark tunnel for two miles. There are 10 aid stations and 4 port-a-potties along the way.

Race entry also includes a lot great swag like a shirt, medal, and food and refreshments at finish.

When: 2020 Season Race Dates
  • Tunnel Marathon: June 14th at 7 am to 2:30 pp
  • Tunnel Vision Marathon: August 16th at 7 am to 2:30 pm
