Hard-core runners from the Pacific Northwest will converge in Issaquah on Aug. 3 for the Grand Ridge Trail Run.
The event takes place at Grand Ridge Park, near Exit 20 off Interstate 90, and will include four distances: 5 miles, half-marathon (13.1 miles), marathon (26.2 miles) and 50 kilometers (31.2 miles).
The races are part of the Evergreen Trail Runs series. Aid stations stocked with water and food will dot the course. Race organizers have teamed with The Balanced Athlete in Renton, which will raffle a pair of shoes and socks to participants.
