Cascade Crest 100 Course Info
Note: the out and back course for 2017 was not a permanant change to the route. It was only done because the Jolly Mountain fire forced closure of the roads that service the second half of the route.
The course remains a clockwise loop starting and ending in Easton, WA. The course runs predominantly through the Wenatchee and Snoqualmie-Mt Baker National Forests. Highlights include about 30 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, passage through the 2.5 mile Snoqualmie Tunnel, and lots of tall trees and tough trails!!
The course covers four of the Green Trails Maps - 207, 208, 239, and 240. These are great maps from a local Seattle company. You can order from Green Trails directly or purchase their maps at any Seattle area REI store.
We hope the weather will cooperate and give you views like this one from the top of Thorp Mountain during the 2005 race.
For a description of the course and general event information please review the Runner's Manual. Most of your questions will probably be answered somewhere in there... We've included course advice from several CCC veterans as well as general suggestions for first time 100 mile runners.
If you want to figure out when you are likely to get to certain aid stations, we have a table showing the arrival times at different aid stations over the years. This will help you plot your expected times along the course and should help crew members plan their schedules to meet with you.
