50M Ultra and Relay

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! Online Registration is available here

On National Trails Day, Saturday June 6, 2015, runners will take on the thirteenth annual Rainier to Ruston Rail-Trail Relay and Ultra. The course follows the Foothills Trail from the shoulders of Mt. Rainier to the shores of Puget Sound.  The trail passes through pristine wilderness and historic communities, following the old Northern Pacific railroad grade that once brought settlers and supplies into the west.  The top runners in each division receive the coveted Golden Spike Awards.

 We hope to see you on National Trails Day, June 6, 2015!
