Mountain Magic 5/10/25k Trail Race 2024
Mark your Calendars for Mountain Magic, Sunday, June 30, 2024!
Get ready for some of the most exciting and beautiful running trails in the Inland NW! The Mountain Magic Trail Race is back June 30, 2024. Rolling trails, pine trees and whole lot of happy faces—what more could a runner ask for?
These trails are winding, rolling, and really really special. Most are wide ski trails through the pines. For the longer distances, there are a couple of minor peaks to summit, making them runnable but still enough elevation gain and loss to push you to your limit!
This year sees a return to the one-day 5/10/25k with some exiting changes including:
> 5k: We’re bringing down the cost of the 5k to help more runners experience the joys of moving from pavement to dirt.
> 10k: We’re subbing in the Eagle Crest trail, bringing more fun, a little more challenge, and a more streamlined start.
> 25k: You’ll run a new single outer loop with mountain views you can’t get anywhere else, along with gorgeous challenging uphills. This is Inland Empire Paper land with restricted access that you can't get to on a regular outing! Check out the photos below. Can’t you just picture running this?
Plus more little pieces to bring magic to the day.
Bottom line, we’re going to make Mountain Magic 2024 a trail running party to kick off your summer. See you up on the mountain!
