This unique course begins at 2180 feet elevation in Mazama and includes well marked deer trails, single track trails, and gravel roads. Stunning views of the Methow River, North Cascades and Chelan Sawtooths abound from flower carpeted meadows and fields. At two points, racers climb to 2600 feet. The finish is at about 1600 feet in Twisp. This course traverses private property that owners generously allow use for this one-day only. Please do not pre-run the course prior to or after the event. Because of the presence of livestock, no dogs at start or finish lines, or on the course please.

The Marathon course is a marathon-plus length at 26.8 miles. Expect breathtaking scenery and some sustained climbs and descents. Elevation +2,520/-2,350.

A Half Marathon option begins at Sun Mountain Chickadee Trailhead and ends at the same Twisp finish line as other event options. The course is moderate in difficulty with some sustained climbs and descents. Total length is just over 1/2 marathon length.
