Cascade Crest is a challenging 100 mile trail run through the Central Cascades of Washington State. The course currently runs as a clockwise loop from the Easton Fire Station. The race starts is 10:00 am Saturday morning and there is an overall time limit of 32 hours.
Randy Gehrke founded and directed the race from 1999 through 2005. Charlie Crissman directed the race from 2007 through 2012. Their efforts have established Cascade Crest as one of the premier 100 milers in the country. 2014 will be the 16th year of the run.
The current course record is 18:27:52 by Rod Bien of Bend, OR in 2011.
The women's record is 21:15 by Darcy Africa of Boulder, CO in 2007.
Jeremy Humphrey (18:31:06) and Shawna Tompkins (21:15:55) each hold the second fastest time.
Entrants must complete an organized trail 50-miler or longer between January 1st, 2014 and July 31st, 2014, or prove adequate experience to finish the run. Completion of any previous trail 100-miler is adequate experience.

Documentation of your trail work must be completed using the online submission form prior to August 1st. Trail work can be done where it is convenient for the runner.

For locals, the Washington Trails Association hosts trail work parties nearly every weekend in beautiful locations throughout the state. The trail work requirement applies to all entrants.
