The Super Marathon is a point-to-point downhill marathon race on a scenic gravel rail-trail 50 miles east of Seattle, Washington. The course is a Boston qualifier and has the best profile in the country for a fast time due to the consistent gentle downhill grade and the low starting elevation. The first three miles are flat, cold, foggy and damp inside an unlit tunnel. Once out of the Tunnel, the gravel trail starts down the hill and keeps on going down, 2050 feet in the next 23 miles. It's never steep enough to be uncomfortable; you just feel like you're having a great race.

Surface: Mostly Trail/Not-Paved

The Teanaway Trail Marathon is held in Teanaway Community Forest which is the first of its kind in the state of Washington. The forest's unique designation is meant to protect the wilderness while giving local groups a say in the land’s management, and is a testament to the passion that outdoor enthusiasts have for this Ponderosa Pine-filled valley. We at Northwest Trail Runs are excited to invite you to this sunny valley, to a truly wild trail run, and catch a peek of Mt. Stuart along the way. The course follows primarily dirt logging roads of various ages, through scattered forest, a few meadows, and past sandstone slabs. At times you can catch a peek into neighboring valleys. The full marathon course has 2,800' of elevation gain, and it's comprised of two loops of the half marathon course.
