Event Information

Set in the shadow of Mt. Rainier, this race offers spectacular views. Like "The Mountain" itself, though, the race stands as an ultimate test of mental character and physical endurance. Over the 50-mile distance the race course rises and falls a staggering 8,700 feet (total elevation change: 17,400 feet). The race features rolling terrain, ridge tops, northwest forest, several sections of technical trails, and of course several demanding climbs and challenging descents. Race numbers are limited to 400 of the toughest endurance athletes this country has to offer. Most competitors will be pleased just to complete the race distance. However, as an extra testament to supreme performance, $2,500 in prize money is offered. The White River 50 Miler is directed by Scott McCoubrey, a competitive ultra runner and former owner of the Seattle Running Company. McCoubrey heads an experienced group of race staff, including John Wallace, III (Volunteer Coordinator), Brian Morrison (Athlete Coordinator), and members of the Seattle Running Club.
