The Light at the End of the Tunnel 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.

The course itself begins at King County’s Tolt MacDonald Park, and it's a beautiful flat, out-and-back course that winds its way through evergreen, mossy forests along the Snoqualmie valley trail. The course is about 90 - 95% trail (crushed gravel & dirt).
