By Staff

The third of five events in the Cougar Mountain Trail Run series is July 12.

Runners can choose to participate in a 10- or 20-mile course, or a 5K, that loops through some of Cougar Mountain’s 36 miles of trails.

Co-produced by Northwest Trail Runs and the Seattle Running Club, the race benefits King County Parks, with more than $126,000 raised since its inception.

Registration fees range between $20 and $50 depending on the race, and $15 of each registration fee will benefit King County Parks & Recreation.

Volunteer work groups organized by the Seattle Running Club spend an average of 150 hours each year doing trail restoration work, including improving trail surface conditions, invasive weed removal and picking up trash.

Register for the race and upcoming ones online.

The series’ final two races are set for Aug. 9 and Oct. 26.
