Volcanic 50K & 25K
August 5, 2023 - August 6, 2023
Volcanic is a rugged (and we mean that), remote, and challenging 50K+ and a 25K on an active volcano in Washington state. The 50K course runs on the single-track Loowit trail, circumnavigating the entire mountain. Racers scramble over boulder fields, cross rivers, run through the blast zone, as well as through dense forest – all with ever-changing views of the volcano. Volcanic 50K is actually 32 miles and feels more like a 50-miler. In all, this Mt. St. Helens race has approximately 7,400 feet of elevation gain and 7,400 feet of loss.
The 25K gives runners a real Mt. St. Helens volcano race experience without having to run all the way around it. This course includes some of the iconic features of the longer race – boulder fields, the Loowit trail, jaw-dropping views of the mountain and the surrounding Cascades, and lush forests. There’s 3,300 feet of gain and loss. This route is also hard, and we mean that.
