The Tunnel Marathons all follow the same schedule. Each race begins promptly at 7AM at the Hyak Lot at Snoqualmie Pass. In order to ensure a stress free race day, please take a look at the race day schedule.
- Pre-race day at Nike Factory Store North Bend, WA Saturday Sept 16th 10am-2pm (for 2017 The Light)
- Race day at the start 5:30 - 6:45 AM
We offered two different ways to pick up packets. One on the Saturday before the race at Nike Factory Store in North Bend, WA and also on race day at the start at Hyak between 5:30 - 6:45 AM. Each runner will receive 2 bags for your gear drop (1 left at the start; 1 left at the station after the tunnel exit-for your headlamp, flashlight, jacket, etc.) There will be Bib tear-off tags for each bag. We will ask each runner add their emergency contact info on the back of their bib.
All runners must park in North Bend to meet the shuttle buses (1.8 miles from the finish). Parking will be available at the Twin Falls Middle School/Terex Lot, 46910 SE Middle Fork Road in North Bend. All runners are shuttled to the start line. Buses will be continuously leaving the Middle School starting at 4:45 AM. You must take the shuttle bus to the start; parking is not available at the start line*
Shuttle buses will be running from the finish line to return runners to the Terex Lot.
*Repeat - There is no available parking at the start line. There are no buses returning to the Starting Line. Any runner attempting to park at the start line will be disqualified from the race, no exceptions. While start line parking has been allowed in past years, the race has grown significantly larger and the facilities at the start area are not large enough to support race day parking. Please plan accordingly and take the buses from the main parking area in North Bend.
Spectator parking at Finish
We offer parking for friends, family and spectators about a 1000ft walk from the Finish. Here on Google maps Please only Park here and do not park along the road. Below is a map
