Wonderland Running is thrilled, honored, and humbled to announce the Dark Divide 100 Miler. The race will take place August 28-29, starting and finishing at the Cispus Learning Center.
The Dark Divide 100 Miler will take you to seldom-traveled places that are unspeakably beautiful, soul-stirringly remote, and uncommonly rugged, in the heart of the Central Washington Cascades.
Laying in the center of Gifford-Pinchot National Forest, this is a land of deep, solitary valleys filled with centuries-old trees; stunning, serrated sub-alpine ridges that are painted by wildflowers and serrated by peaks; wild streams tumbling unfettered over waterfalls into sparkling pools; viewscapes that feel like you can touch Mount Adams, Mount Rainier, and Mount Saint Helens with your fingers… and a treasure of glimpses into the world as it once was.
The race features over 26,000 feet of ascent and an equivalent amount of descent. with long, wild stretches through the Dark Divide Roadless Area. Don’t worry though, we have a generous 38-hour cutoff to give you every chance to earn your finisher’s buckle!
We are grateful to be hosting the start/finish and race headquarters at Cispus Learning Center near Randle, WA. These full facilities have plenty of parking and camping available for runners, right at the doorstep of the Dark Divide.
We look forward to seeing you in this wild, remote, beautiful, and soul-stirring wildscape in the Washington Cascades!!!!!
Ancestral lands of the Taidnapam, Stl’pulmsh, and Pshwánwapam peoples.
