What to expect:
The best damn race weekend of your life. Once again, we are headed back to our stompin' grounds on Tiger Mountain. With new trails, new racers, and our same good ol' fashion Sturdy Dirtyness(?), we promise a shred filled day of fun-first racing.
Expect timed downhill-orientated sections interspersed with uphill transition trail riding and fun-filled aid stations.
We will provide course map and details about 1 month prior to the event, but feel free to check out the 2018 course to get a feel for it.
HOW TO GEt there:
From Seattle take I-90 East to Highway 18. Continue South on Highway 18 for 4.4 miles, until you reach East Tiger Summit on your right. There are two main parking areas, both accessed from the highway 18 summit. The upper area is gated and is locked at 8:00 PM per the sign on the gate. This area also includes pit toilets. The road to the upper area travels west (to the left) just above the lower parking lot.
We will be staging out of the upper parking lot at Tiger Mountain. There will be NO PARKING in the upper lot. We STRONGLY encourage you to CARPOOL. Parking will be tight. We will have people to help direct parking, so please follow their directions. Bring you Discover Pass if you have one. If you are parked on the road on the way to the upper lot, a Discover Pass will be required.
WHERE TO STAY:
There is no camping or lodging onsite at Tiger Mountain. Check Issaquah, North Bend, or Snoqualamie for hotels, airbnbs, etc. for closest lodging.
