Welcome to the "blogsite" for the Cle Elum Ridge 50k and 25k trail races! After experimenting with a new course last year I've decided to revert back to the classic course that everyone has loved to hate over the years. For those of you who know of me from the other races I direct (Orcas Island and Sun Mountain and the brand new Winthrop Road Marathon) or directed in the past (The Epic, The Cure for P(l)ain, and with John Pearch the Capitol Peak Ultras) you know I like to put on challenging races that reward the runner's hard work with great scenery. These two races are sure to uphold my hard earned reputation.

I look forward to seeing you this September up on the Cle Elum Ridge wether it's for the first time or for the first time since the last time!
