Devil’s Gulch is the premier event by Banshee Running, a woman-owned business based in Seattle, Washington. Our goal is to create a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive space for all people who like to move through the mountains and to make the wilderness and trail running events more accessible to anyone who is interested in participating.
Our tough and gorgeous 36-mile loop on the east side of the Cascades will take you through Devil’s Gulch and up and over Mount Lillian. You’ll rack up over 7,500′ of gain in this race, but don’t worry: you have 12 hours to get it done! The course follows some runnable and not-so-runnable single track, plus a bit of forest service road. The views are incredible, and the temperatures should be nice and warm.
Not ready for a 36 miler, or wanting to have a more chill day with some of the same amazing views? Sign up for the half marathon, a 13.1-mile loop that starts and ends at the ski resort, with about 2,500′ of elevation gain. This race will start Saturday at noon.
Finishers will receive a shirt, and plenty of food and beverage at the finish line. We promise to hang out and keep the party going until the very end!
