Notice

COVID 19

Unfortunately, we are forced to cancel nearly all the 2020 NWEpic Series races. Because our races are larger than 50 participants, government agencies cannot issue permits until the venue is in Phase 4. Unfortunately, we don't know when or if this will happen in time for our events. As of July 1, we MAY be able to have the Stottlemeyer race, as it is in Kitsap County and mostly on private land. If we are able to go ahead with Stottlemeyer, we'll be following strict guidelines to limit contact between everyone involved. Anyone who is currently registered for a cancelled race will be automatically deferred to next year's race. Please check back later for updates and thank you for your patience.

Chip Timing

This year, we'll be using chip timing! If you already have a chip, use it (just let us know the number). If you don't have one, we'll provide you with one for a $5 deposit. You can either turn it in after the race and get your money back or keep it for future races.

Course Description

Riders will begin the race with a long gravel grinder up FS Road 7160 for approximately 6 miles. There they will enter the lower 3rd of the Suntop Trail for some killer downhill single track leading them back through the start/finish area and on to the lower Aid station.

From the Lower Aid riders will then head out on the Skookum Flats Trail. Skookum is notoriously challenging and technical. It's a very slow descent but you wouldn't know it with all the work you'll be doing. There's a couple of walk-a-bike sections and not much room to pass. This is also a popular hiker trail so please be courteous to other trail users. From Skookum, it's up to big Suntop. This is the longest climb of the day, using a mixture of USFS gravel roads. You'll crawl your way up to the tippy top of Green Mountain. Big Suntop is home to a historic (and one of only a few still remaining) active fire lookouts. The views up here are stunning. This is a great place to refuel and take in the views. There will be a full aid/food and bag drop station here.

Back in the saddle! It's on to the Suntop Trail. Don't be fooled, you're not done climbing! Pace yourself until the trail points down. The Suntop descent is one of the fastest in the state. It's pretty wide open in places so please stay in control and check your speed. This descent has been used in the past by the Fat Tire Revolution and as a CDC Enduro series; it's rad! Tons of fast technical sections, switchbacks, and high-speed berms. As you make your way down, crossing a few fire roads, it's back to the campground/Race HQ. This is the finish for the 30 Milers for approximately 31 miles and 5500’ of elevation gain!

50 Milers (9933' of Gain) will ride the inner loop (FSA Loop) followed by two outer loops, because the one climb to the Suntop lookout is just not enough.

Campfires

Friday night, at the start/finish area, we'll have a campfire going, so come on out and join the fun!
