DAM MARATHON COURSE
The Marathon course starts at Mud Mountain Dam Park (elevation 1,319′), located deep in the forest next to the iconic White River, and finishes across the Historic McMillin Bridge (elevation 128′). A 1,191 feet of elevation loss is gradual enough to get you to that BQ or PR!

The marathon heads out of the forested Mud Mountain Dam Park, kicking off with a 7 mile rolling downhill run through the Mud Mountain neighborhoods, heading towards the SR 410 White River crossing.
After a short tour of the neighborhoods in the City of Buckley, the course connects to the fast gradual downhill of the Foothill Rail Trail for the next 16 miles, going through farmlands and forest, snaking along the Carbon River.
You’ll pass through the towns and communities of Buckley, the Cascade Junction, South Prairie & Orting before The finish takes you across the McMillin Foothill’s Trail Bridge before running through the Historic McMillin Bridge to cross the finish line for what might be your fastest race yet! Maybe you’ll even be recovered enough for a marathon the next weekend too and you can take on the ‘Marathon Maniacs‘ challenge.
