Possibly the most incredible views you could ever have on a trail run! The Cutthroat Classic is a 11.1 mile trail run through the North Cascades, following the Pacific Crest Trail and over Cutthroat Pass. This race is limited and sells out every year. Race registration includes transportation to the race start and back to Mazama from the finish, a race t-shirt, aid stations, awards and random prizes.
The trail is rough and rocky with some shallow stream crossings. It is used by day hikers, backpackers, horses, llama packers and mountain bikers, so be ready for a challenging run. The weather could be anything from hot, dry and sunny to cold and wet. Be prepared for all weather conditions.The upper part of the course has little shade. Runners must carry a sufficient amount of water and fuel for the whole run.
Self-seeding with 4 waves. Wave one being the fastest wave. See previous Cutthroat results for an idea on past finish times. Race timing will auto adjust for wave time starts.
** Wave one is for elite or very fast runners only; Waves two and three will have the most runners at their start time
*Racers should feel confident that they can complete the course in three hours or less.
Entry fee includes registration, race bib, shuttle transportation from Mazama Venue to the start , custom Cutthroat Classic Tee (with registration prior to June 1, 2012), shuttle transportation from finish to Mazama venue, and awards.
