Race to Robie Creek

Readers' Picks

For the past 37 years, on the third Saturday of April at high noon, Race to Robie Creek has been a "fun, slightly irreverent, top quality" half-marathon race with heavy emphasis on the after-race party. Everyone is invited to run the uphill trail race, including "runners, trotters, walkers or crawlers," but participants must be able to finish the 13-mile contest in fewer than five hours--and be prepared to climb more than 2,000 feet while doing so. Race to Robie Creek is called the "toughest race in the Northwest," but that isn't a deterrent: This year, more than 2,300 people were up the challenge.
