Mountain Magic 5/10/25k Trail Race 2025

Mark your Calendars for Mountain Magic, Sunday, June 29, 2025!

Mountain Magic 2024 was our best event yet! A record number of runners took on some of the most exciting and beautiful running trails in the Inland NW! The new 25k course was a hit, and the energy was high around the finish line and lodge all morning. It's no surprise - 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!

Here are a few examples of feedback we've gotten:

This year was awesome, the course was challenging but you could still press the pace.

- Chase Abbott, 25k runner

That was the best trail race I’ve ever done!

– Jeremy Brown, 10k winner

"It was wonderfully varied. Hills, grass, mud, gravel, turns, beauty. It had so much to enjoy."

This race to me is all about what makes the trail running community special. Everybody is so down to earth and friendly. It’s a relaxed, fun and supportive environment. The course is well marked and simply beautiful and the communication about the event was great. And the food, yum.

We'll build on the things that made it so great and tweak the things that can be improved. And new for 2025, due to popular demand, we're bringing in medals for all finishers.

Bottom line, Mountain Magic is going to follow in the footsteps of 2024 as the trail running party to kick off your summer. See you up on the mountain!
