Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the 2020 NWEpic Series season. Because of the volatility of the COVID-19 situation, and the uncertainty of getting permits, it is not possible to plan for a high-quality event. We appreciate your understanding in this unprecedented situation. If you are already registered for a race, your registration will be deferred to next year. We hope to be back next year with a full scheduled of events. In the meantime, stay safe and stay healthy!

"It's perfect, it's the best its ever been," said 60-mile cyclist Kelly Kim-Campo of Kingston. Strenuous courses and good company are all part of the allure for endurance riders. "It's fun in its own way," said 30-mile rider Sarah Atwood of Bothell. "The competition, the atmosphere, the people ... the beer and a band at the finish." Read Tad's article.

Man, I cannot tell you how much I LOVE having endurance races ‘in my back yard’!!!! It’s awesome – thanks to Kevin and the NW Epic Series crew for a well run race – the course was awesome, the volunteers amazing, and it was simply a great event! Read Monilee's race recap.

Great time last weekend…. I did not realize after being away from Capitol Forest that the trails are very amazing and super fast. The Aide stations were top notch and course was excellent.

The Stottlemeyer turned out to be such a killer race. Great course with an excellent level of support from the volunteer-staffed feedzones.  Read Logan's race recap.

The Capitol Forest 50 was my first endurance race, and I had a fantastic time!  I know these trails well, and the course gave racers the best of the best in Capitol Forest; traverses through the woods, ripping descents and a healthy dose of climbing.  Well-stocked support stations, friendly volunteers, a very well-organized event overall.  I will definitely do it again!  Thanks to FOCF for keeping these trails in such great shape!

Erin Roe, GL6 Racing, Olympia WA   


After the finish, we chowed down a great meal of burgers, soups, and various snacks while the racers raved about the course, which I would rank right at the top of my list of all-time totally fun rides! It was a stretch to make it this year, but I will definitely mark my calendar better for the next time around. Read Evan's race recap.

Amazing race, course, volunteers, and vibe! Thanks for the fantastic experience, I'll be back for sure!

If you didn't do the Capitol Forest 50/100 race this year - YOU MUST PUT IT ON YOUR CALENDAR for next year! What an absolutely awesome race course. I finished my first 100 mile race! Wuhoo!

Shane Gibson, Race Promoter,, Portland, OR


The Capitol Forest 50 is one of my favorite endurance races.  The amazing singletrack, spectacular views, friendly and helpful volunteers, delicious post-race food, fabulous prizes and well-organized race directors make this a race you shouldn't miss.  Whether you are an experienced racer or a weekend warrior looking for an adventure, you won't be disappointed.

Fabulous day, ended with a great racing finish in and the biggest smile of 2010. Fabulous setting, Fabulous volunteers, Fab race to remember. Cheers

Steve Hilton, Sedro-Wooley, WA


Capitol Forest 100 was my first 100 mile MTB race and only my second MTB race ever!  With that said I do not have a lot to compare it to but I thought that it was awesome.  Had a really good time and the course was a lot of fun.  It had a little bit of everything.  Thanks again.

Eliah Romer, OR


Great event! Many thanks to all the volunteers, trail crews & organizers for the great course, well stocked aid stops, and post-race feed! Thanks to all the racers for a tough & friendly competition.

Nathan Fredrickson, Seattle, WA


"Awesome," said one male rider. Others were equally pleased with the race. One primary reason is the dry weather, trails that include Forest Service roads, cross-country ski trails, and a mixture of single track, lots of up-and-down and plenty of rests tops with water, energy drinks and energy bars.  Read Richard's article.
