The race course is on the City of Marine Trail system surrounding the very architecturally unique Jackson Meadow community. There is a mixture of well-marked, wide and relatively smooth grassy ski/hiking paths, plus blacktopped roads. Paved bicycle paths parallel much of the course, so bring along the kids to watch and to race.

Last year's 2013 Action Pic's:

Thanks to all the competitors and volunteers that made the 2013 a great race. The shorter course, pinwheel, gravel path section, great music and great food made for a fantastic day. The race also benefited the Jackson Meadow Trail system. To date, Chilkoot Velo has donated over $2,000.
