Washington > Cougar Mountain Trail Running Series Half Marathon
Bellevue, WA



Saturday, August 13, 2011

Event Details

Part of a summer-long series of running events designed to raise funds for the Bellevue area's Kings County Parks system, the Vasque Cougar Mountain Trail Running Series consists of a 5-mile, 7.5-mile, 10-mile and 13-mile races, with one event per month starting in May and winding up in August.

The half marathon portion of the series takes place in August, starting at the Sky Country Trailhead in the Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park, located just to the south of Bellevue.

The course for the half is a loop course through 13 miles of the park, with numerous hills and sometimes steep changes in elevation, along with challenging terrain. Runners are urged to remain on the designated trails throughout the entire race, as the historical mining areas scattered throughout the park can present safety hazards if you stray off the trails.

Race Weather & Climate

Dry, moderately warm weather is the norm in the Bellevue area in the late summer months, as temperatures average between 57°F and 76°F in August. Rainfall is scarce (August is tied for the city's driest month of the year) with just under an inch of precipitation on average during the month.
