Just 15 minutes from Seattle, King County's Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park is one of the most popular training grounds for area trail runners and the Seattle Running Club. The course builds on itself throughout the series and brings runners through a lush forest of fern-lined single-track trails, over hills and along marshes and wetland habitats. This is a great series to supplement the training regime for a fall marathon or ultra. Cougar Mountain features rolling hills, a few moderate climbs and a few steep but short inclines.
This is the last event in the SCOTT Cougar Mountain Trail Run Series, and it is not part of the scoring for the May through August points series. The distance options are 50 km and 20 miles.
