Bridle Trails Winter Running Festival
An evening of trail racing: The Bridle Trails Winter Running Festival includes 5-mile, 10-mile, 50K solo, and 50K relay races. It takes place at Bridle Trails State Park in Kirkland.
All runners will use the same 5.2-mile loop of trails, mostly going clockwise around the perimeter of the park. The route will be marked with orange and white streamers, as well as yellow glow sticks after dark.
Some sections of the trail are rough, rutted, or muddy, and it is Winter, so please watch your footing, and expect to get wet and dirty.
This course is famous for its mud!
Sunset is at 4:38pm, and it will get dark under the forest canopy pretty quickly after that. If it is overcast or raining/snowing, it will get dark earlier. If there is a good chance you’ll be on the course after that time, please bring a headlamp with enough battery life to get you to the finish!
