Located in the heart of Fidalgo Island, Mt. Erie has one of the best viewpoints for miles. This annual event tests the endurance and stamina of anyone willing to take the challenge. Runners will jog up to the summit of Mt. Erie, with an elevation gain of 1,213 ft. The last 1.5 miles gains 884 ft. Participants have the option of running the paved road route, 3.6 miles, or the trail route, 2.5 miles. All participants are required to check-in and get pre-race instructions between 9:00 – 9:45 a.m. at Mt. Erie Elementary, 41st & “M” Avenue, in Anacortes.

Awards and refreshments will be given out at the school after the race. Runners must either jog or have transportation back to the school.
