Iron Horse half marathon
Sunday, August 30, 2020
The Iron Horse half marathon is a point-to-point half marathon taking place in Washington state on the Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail and Snoqualmie Valley Trail (part of the King County Parks system). Both trails are the remains of old railroad tracks, hence the ‘Iron Horse’ moniker. The course is nearly all downhill at a steady, gentle grade, except for some very short flat sections.
We will be starting participants with wave starts. Waves will be assigned by finishing time a few weeks in advance of the race.
Why wave starts, you ask? By spreading people out with wave starts, it will prevent congestion at the start, allow more time for the shuttles to bring everybody to the start and will instantly spread people out along the course.
