Race Information

According to Seattle Parks & Recreation, a local realtor named Ravenna Park after "an Italian seacoast town that was famous for its pine trees, where poets, warriors, and statesmen once strolled in a state of euphoria..." Experience your own trail running-induced euphoria at Summer Trail Series event! Whether it's your first trail run, or some motivating 'maintenance miles,' you'll be glad you ran at Ravenna Park!

The Summer Evening Trail Series takes place on 6 Tuesday evenings in some of the most verdant running destinations that are conveniently located within the Seattle and Eastside areas. Distances are short, ranging from 4k to 10 miles at most. Join us for 4 or more Summer Evening Trail Series runs and you'll earn a souvenier (TBA) to mark your achievement!

This trail run is the first of six events in the Summer Trail Series.

There will be 4k, 8K & 12K events. All courses use the same 4.1 km loop, with low to moderate climb (230 feet per loop) and nicely groomed forested trails. There are a few steeper pitches, but most of the course is gently sloping, as the course takes runners up and down the ravine.
