About the Race

Cascade Ultra is now a part of the UMCA Ultracycling Cup and the Ultra 500 Mile Challenge Series! This scenic and challenging loop climbs 4 passes Starting and Finishing at Luke McRedmond Landing in Redmond, WA (15 miles East of downtown Seattle)...Register today and hold your spot to circumnavigate the Cascades Aug 16-17, 2014! 

Race Route

UPDATE! Hwy 530 through the Oso Mudslide area has been opened. The original route will now be followed and NOT the alternate route to the north. This also affects the route leaving and entering Redmond at the start and finish since mileage was cut through that region for the alternate route, but will now be included again.     Make sure and REGISTER today and reserve your spot!
