Race Description

On National Trails Day, Saturday June 2, 2012, runners, walkers, and ultras will take on the tenth annual Rainier to Ruston Rail-Trail Relay and Ultra. This non-profit event serves to raise awareness of trails in Pierce County. The course follows the Foothills Trail from the shoulders of Mt. Rainier to the shores of Puget Sound. The trail passes through pristine wilderness and historic communities, following the old Northern Pacific railroad grade that once brought settlers and supplies into the west. The top runners, walkers, and ultras in each division receive the coveted Golden Spike Awards. Awards will be given at the finish line at Marine Park on Ruston Way in Tacoma, where runners will be arriving throughout the afternoon. For more information, visit
