Tiger Claw VERTual Race
April 8 - April 9$25
Tiger Claw VERTual is our virtual version of our in-person event, Tiger Claw, and is designed to represent the spirit & challenge of Tiger Claw with a focus on max vert, less mileage and incredible community. The namesake, Tiger Mountain, is the biggest of The Issaquah Alps just outside of Seattle, Washington and has long been the training ground to some of trail running’s greatest runners. Technical trails, relentless climbs and quad-blowing descents make for perfect training and trail fun. While the Tiger Claw event is a unique choose-your-own-adventure race consisting of three summits of Tiger Mountain’s West peaks culminating in 8500ft over 25 miles, our Tiger Claw VERTual event focuses on achieving 8000ft of gain in a single activity. Simply put, Tiger Claw VERTual is focused on completing a similar level of athletic achievement, but on your home turf, in your own time and on your own route. As a perk for participating, we’ll send you a coveted “vert coin” for every 1000ft of vert you climb during your activity (max of 8 coins). Finally, if in the true spirit of Tiger Claw you manage to complete your 8000ft of vert in less than 20 miles, we’ll send you the rarest 9th “claw” coin to add to your collection!
