Mountain Magic 5/10/25k Trail Run

Saturday June 17, 2023

Mt. Spokane State Park Nordic Ski Trails - beside Selkirk Lodge

Finish times for all 2022 distances are posted on the UltraSignup registration page.
2022 Photos are posted on the Photos 2022 page.

Get training! Mountain Magic returns to Mt. Spokane on Saturday, June 17, 2023. Early DISCOUNT registration will open in February 2023.

Celebrate the joys and challenges of running on some of Spokane's most enchanting trails! The course, which is all on Nordic ski trails, provides mostly non-technical single track among the pines (ie few rocks or exposed roots). It features wide-open views while still providing a reasonable level of challenge, particularly for 25K runners. The 5k option is a great way for adults, youth and kids who have never run trails or entered a trail race to make the move from pavement to dirt, on some of the most beautiful, winding parts of the run.


State Parks has set a registration limit again this year, of 300 registrations, so sign up ASAP! Once registration maxes out, we will post a notice on this site and the UltraSignup registration page.


*In the event of Acts of God, COVID restrictions or State Park closure etc, entries are non-refundable. There will be be no deferred entries for the 2024 event.


There will be two aid stations: a water/sports drink table on the 5k/10k course and a food and fluid table at two points of the 15k loop.

To keep nature pure and to aid in clean-up, this is a cupless event. If you will want water or sport drink at the aid station, please bring a hand-held or disposable bottle to carry with you.

After you've crossed the finish line, grab a light lunch. Food is included in registration costs. Additional meal tickets are available for $5 at registration.


Dogs are great, but please leave them at home for this event. (Cats and goats, too.)


Mountain Magic 2022 shirts are available online at https://outliveapparel.creator-spring.com/. Delivery by mail takes about 2 weeks, so be sure to buy yours ASAP if you want to wear it on race day! (Ladies' styles are smaller than usual - order up a size.) You can also get a hoodie and water bottle. Check it out!
