Relay race in Japanese Gulch
The Gulch Countdown, an annual relay race, will be held at 8:30 a.m. Saturday in Mukilteo.
“The Gulch Countdown is run as a series of 2.18 mile loops, with the first loop having a 32-minute cutoff. Those who finish ahead of the cutoff can use the remaining time for aid. All finishers within the cutoff then start the next loop together, running the opposite direction within 31 minutes. With each additional loop, the cutoff is reduced by one minute. After 12 loops – a marathon distance – loop times decrease by 30 seconds until only one runner remains – the last person standing.”
Registration closes Friday, Jun 7 at 7:59 p.m. Sign up at https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=64529.
