We have heard you and we, too, are hungry for a local (South Sound) holiday trail racing option. Porter Creek Trail Runs offers three (3) race distances (5K, 10-mile, 25K), a training group (for those interested), and an opportunity to show your holiday spirit in the great outdoors of the PNW. The event is low key, low cost. There *will* be yule logs. We can think of no better way to ring in the holiday season than on single track! 

Event details and schedule

The Course

Porter Creek Trail is outside of Elma, WA in an oft un/under-explored portion of Capitol State Forest. It originates in a fine little campground, complete with water falls, room to park and play! The trail is single track, rolling, and runnable. There is nothing sinister about this race (happy holidays!). Course maps. 


The Training Group

Join us for an 8-week training group to help prepare you for the 10-mile or the 25K race event. Group meets on Tuesdays at 6PM for a strength/speed session and on Sundays for a long trail run. Guidance is provided to runners for the rest of the week. Discounts are available to participants on race nutrition/hydration, gear, and more. Training group registration includes race entry.
