Fragrance Lake Half: 3,407 ft of ascent and 3,407 ft descent

Race Elevation Profiles

Fragrance Lake Half Marathon:


The course explores the Chuckanut Mountain, Raptor Ridge, Pine, and Cedar Trails. All of this smooth single track will expose you to every shade of green, rocks as big as houses and 7,000 feet of climbing. Lots of time on ridges means lots of time with incredible views.  February weather can be cold and wet and occasionally we get snow - please be prepared for anything.


No cut offs for the 10k - walkers welcome! We do not provide aid for this distance, but of course, there will be plenty of refreshments at the finish! 

Aid stations will have candy, gels, chips, snacks, water, soda, electrolyte drinks, and enthusiastic volunteers cheering you on! 

UPDATE for 2019 RACE:
Please note that due to extreme weather the race had to be moved from February to June! New date is June 8.
