This is the proposed course for the Cascadian National Marathon XC Championships. Actual mileage is closer to 40-45 as I had to hand draw a couple sections in the map.

Course: Start at Mission Ridge Ski Resort, Climb up past the Chairlifts to the Pipeline Trail and take Pipeline to Beehive Rd. Turn left on Beehive Rd. and follow it to the Tronsen Ridge Trailhead; continue on Tronsen Ridge Trail to Red Hill Trail; proceed on Red Hill Trail; turn left on on Devils Loop; complete Devils Loop and then turn right onto Devils Gulch Trail; Follow Devils Gulch to Devils Spur; turn right onto Squilchuck Rd and climb to the finish at Mission Ridge Ski Resort.

 Given that this map has hand drawn sections and the event never happened, perhaps this route should simply be deleted until the actual gps routes are uploaded?

Beehive Road in the Mission Ridge area is closed due to landslide potential. Wenatchee, WA — The popular Beehive Road in the Mission Ridge area has been closed due to landslide and public safety concerns. Forest engineers and hydrologists are closely monitoring a nearly 350 foot long section of road where large cracks have developed and could washout entirely. “The continued landslide potential in this area is very high right now and a significant public safety risk,” said Wenatchee River District Ranger, Jeff Rivera. “Folks are strongly advised to avoid the entire Beehive area including hiking and mountain bike trails.” Forest crews are actively monitoring the current landslide for signs of further movement and instability. The timeline for reopening remains condition dependent and will occur only when it is safe to do so. reporter

Totally clear, tacky hard pack. Fast and flowly. Watch out for the bears. The very top is a bit loose with some fist sized rocks in sand from moto traffic, but after that it's perfect.
