Apr 6 2013
All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you’re not good enough or strong enough or talented enough, they’ll say you’re the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. They will tell you no, a thousand times no until all the no’s become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly & very quickly. They will tell you no and you will tell them yes.” - Nike Advertisement

The course is a 9.5 mile loop that circles Lake Young's Watershed in Renton and is a great trail event for beginners.
This trail doubles as a maintenance perimeter road for the Lake Youngs Reservoir, which is fenced and no entry is permitted. The trail skirts around the outside of the fence, with varied scenery on the "outside" side (from suburban backyards to forested wetlands) and untouched woodland on the "inside". Aside from a few narrow sections, the trail is firm, wide, and relatively mud-free year-round.
Bathrooms and and water is at the at the start/finish only............there are not any on the course.
Water, soda, and juice will be provided at the start/finish line. Each participant will also receive a finisher's medal.
This event is limited to 50 participants and no refunds.
