The Course

The first 20 miles of the Sasquatch Marathon is a gentle downhill losing more than 1,200 feet in elevation. The final 10k of the marathon is completely flat.

This point-to-point course takes advantage of the gentle downhill of the Ironhorse Trail and Snoqualmie Valley Trail. Unlike other similar events, there is no dark, pothole laden tunnel to run through. The marathon will end in the friendly confinement of Snoqualmie’s Centennial Park.
