If your Mountain Biker is not back by 2:15 pm- the Runner starts their leg! Meet them at Way Point Park! Cut OFF Time for MB leg does not apply to Chinook (solo).
The Course: Start at Lake Padden horse parking lot, near the Wilkin Street entrance to the park. The course heads along the south end of the lake on the wide-open trail that parallels the lake. As you pass the Dog Park, you’ll enter into fun single-track. You will climb up into the “Expert Loop” that will drop you down on some sweet switchbacks. The trails wind you back as you enjoy classic Northwest single-track riding. More climbing means more downhill. The Finish is back at the Lake Padden horse parking lot. Enjoy the ride.
The course will be well marked with arrows and tape to guide you through.
Parking: Please park on the right side of Wilkin Ave. or within the park. It would be great if you rode up, took the bus or carpooled with some friends. Space is limited.
Please follow: IMBA Rules of the Trail
