2012 Capitol Peak Ultras Events!

Greetings! Registration is now available for the 2012 Capitol Peak Ultras events! If you've ran either races last year, they will be similar courses and both start at the Margarette McKenny campground in Capitol State Forest, off of Wadell Road.
However, please take note, you will need to separately purchase a Discover Pass online for parking at the start/finish area before both events. To Purchase a Discover Pass see the following website:

Both events benefit Friends of Capitol Forest, the South Puget Sound Mobile Search and Rescue and the Washington Trails Association!

Here's details about each event:
Saturday January 21, 2012 Capitol Peak Mega Fat Ass - start at 8:00am at Margarette McKenny campground, Capitol State Forest. 17 mile and 34 mile distances. No frills, no tshirt, no food at aid stations, no whining! BYO food and water bottle, but there will be water jugs at stations. Then also don't forget to bring something for the post-run potluck!

Please take advantage of the discount price, saving $10 before January 23. Patagonia Capeline Tshirts are sold separately!

Also, if you didn't know, the Yakima Skyline 50k and 25k is planned for April 21, 2012 so Capitol Peak Ultras and Rainshadow running have teamed up efforts to encourage participation in both events. If you volunteer at either event you are guaranteed a comp entry into the other race. In other words, if you volunteer at Yakima Skyline, you can get a comp entry for Capitol Peak (tshirt not included)! Rainshadow Running also have this same offer, if you commit to volunteering at Capitol Peak, you can get a comp entry into Yakima Skyline. Please email both John and James, if interested in this offer! For more information about Capitol Peak 50 mile/55km see the website:

Stay tuned for volunteer trail work or visit the website for updates!

See you all soon!
