Join us for a run at Squak Mountain near Issaquah, Washington and a short drive from Seattle. Squak features cushy, well-maintained trails and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains!  


This forested park in the Pacific Northwest features miles of trails in wilderness solitude with glimpses of Issaquah below. There are several trail loop options on this 2,024-foot-high mountain. We offer 12K, Half-Marathon (13.1 miles), Marathon (26.3 miles) and 50K course options. 


There will be plenty of aid stations and the courses are well marked. The courses start and finish at the main Squak Mountain Trailhead (see directions tab). 


Looking forward to seeing you out there!


This event is sanctioned by USA Track & Field.


There's limited parking at the trailhead, so please carpool if possible and/or plan to arrive early. There is plenty of street parking on S.E. 135th St. directly west of the park entrance. Do NOT park on May Valley Rd.
