   The Bigfoot 200 is inspired by the wild Cascade Mountains and is the first point 

    to point 200 mile trail race in the United States. The course traverses some of

    the most stunning, wild, and scenic trails in the Cascade Mountain range of

    Washington State. The race starts at Mt. St. Helens running through the

    desolation zone of this active volcano, over long ridge lines, high cliffs, bagging

    peaks, with views of some of the biggest volcanoes in Washington State:

    Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, and Oregon's Mt. Hood. The route is 205.8 miles with 

    more than 50,000 feet of ascent and over 96,000 feet of elevation change.

    You won't find a more challenging 200mi race in the USA if you're looking

    for big ascents, technical trails and remote terrain.
