Smokechaser 30K

September 11, 2021 @ 7:30 am - 3:00 pm

A 30k trail race starting on the shores of pristine Priest Lake Idaho then climbs 4200′ of mixed double and single track to the summit of Lookout Mountain and it’s historic fire lookout. This race celebrates the fire fighters of days past who were called “Smokechasers”. Before the days of aircraft and satellite technology, the historic protectors of our forests spotted lighting strikes or “smokes” from mountain top lookout towers, who then sent messages by telegraph or radio to nearby ranger stations. The courageous Smokechaser would summit the mountain on foot to the lightning struck peak with a small water container, a bedroll, and hand tools to extinguish the fire. Experience this historic route like the Smokechaser with epic alpine mountain trail running.
