Mountain Magic 5/10/25k Trail Run &

Mountain Magic Trail Marathon

(Event Canceled) Saturday June 26, 2021

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

We are sad to announce that the 2021 Mountain Magic Trail Run has been canceled due to the health of the race founder and director. Brad had emergency surgery at the end of May, and is recovering but will not be able to manage the upcoming event. Stay tuned for information on refunds for those that registered and paid for the event. - The Outlive Board

Celebrate the joys and challenges of running on some of Spokane's most enchanting trails, and help cancer survivors get back on their feet! The Mountain Magic trail run returns to Mt. Spokane June 26, 2021 for its third year. 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 and Marathon 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.


New this year - check out the most amazing mountain marathon in the Spokane area!

(It's the only one we know of. It's still amazing!)



State Parks has set a registration limit again this year, of 300 registrations. It's also possible the County will limit it to 200 if Covid restrictions change. We sold out in 2019, so sign up ASAP! If registration maxes out, we will post a notice on this site and the UltraSignup registration page.


*Entries are non-refundable. In the event the event is canceled, a 50% refund will be provided. There will be be no deferred entries for the 2022 event.


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


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


Mountain Magic 2021 shirts are available online at 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.)
