Upcoming Trail Runs
Born to Run Presents the Soaring Eagle 5k, 10k, Half-Marathon, Marathon and 50K Trail Run
May 24, 2014 in Sammamish, Washington
Registration will be available soon.
Right in Sammamish, Soaring Eagle is a very popular destination for runners and hikers alike with easy to access trailheads. Born to Run has teamed up with Evergreen Trail Runs to bring you the second Born to Run Trail Run at Soaring Eagle Park.
Whether you run barefoot, in minimalist shoes or haven't made the transition, we encourage all trail runners to come out and enjoy what nature has to offer! We'll have some great raffle prizes and once again, award the Silver Monkey award to the person the most embodies the spirit of barefoot running.
The distances offered are 5k, 10k, Half-Marathon, Marathon and 50K. For views of the trails, check out pictures by Glenn Tachiyama from previous years. Fully stocked Aid Stations every 3-4 mileswill give runners plenty of places to fuel up. We will have water, Nuun, Clif Shots/Bloks/Bars, PBJ sandwiches, fruit, cookies, pretzels and more. And as always there will be an assortment of food and beverages after the race.
Looking forward to seeing you out there!

Read about how we keep the races green here.
We are dedicated to the responsible enjoyment and active stewardship of the outdoors, and we encourage you to "leave no trace behind" by taking all trash with you. The park rangers always appreciate it when racers follow the marked course and keep the trails clean, and they are much more likely to grant permission for us to put on races at the same location if the trails are kept in good condition.
The trails will be open to other users during the event, including equestrians (allowed on the trails but seldom encountered), pedestrians and cyclists. Horses do have the right of way, and if you encounter a horse in your path, stop running, step off the path, and let the horse past, unless the rider tells you that it is okay to walk past. Please be courteous. Where the trails are narrow, please let other participants pass you if they want to get by. It is a passing runner's job to tell the person in front that they wish to pass.
The course, particularly the 10Mile, Marathon and 50K sections have some rough and rooty sections, and in the winter can accumulate large deep puddles. Please be careful when you proceed. Participants are responsible for their own safety. In case of an emergency, call 9-1-1, should you decide to bring a cellphone, most areas of Soaring Eagle Park have reception. We will also have volunteers at mile 4 (Aid Station) and we will sweep the course. You must notify the event organizer or volunteer if you decide to quit since we need to ensure all participants have safely returned after the event.
For refunds/cancellations please see our policy.
