Cougar Mountain Trail Run Series

June race results and series standings available


Interested in Volunteering? The Cougar Mountain Trail Series is successfully run with the assistance of our many and cherished volunteers. If you've ever run a series race, or you just want to help out in the local running community, we would love to have your assistance at our next race!

New this year: For a couple select races*, if you're a USATF member and live in western Washington, you can be eligible for cash prizes, awarded to top 5 Men and Women in both the Open division (0-39 years old) and Masters division (40+ years old). *The 10.8 mile race on July 11th and the 14.5 mile race on August 8th

A Greener Event: This year, the series is taking a step toward reducing the amount of trash created during the event. In 2015, we ask that runners bring a refillable water container with them on the trail to use at aid stations along the way. Our friends at The Balanced Athlete and Fleet Feet Sports Seattle have a variety of hydration products and are offering 15% off for anyone registered for a series race.

        Online Registration for all race distances is open!
        Special discount codes for $5 off individual races (Code: SRC) available to current SRC members.



Since 2003, Seattle Running Club and participants in the Cougar Mountain Trail Run Series have raised nearly $145,000 for King County Parks! Thank you runners!!
