$4500 Prize Money for Angels Staircase 60k

Money money money! For the first time ever at one of our trail races we will have prize money! $4500 prize purse for the Angels Staircase 60k: $1000 1st male and female, $500 2nd male and female, $250 3rd male and female, and $250 first male and female masters.

Update: Seven Hills Running Shop is adding another $500 to the prize purse by sponsoring a $250 prime for the first male and female to reach the top of Angels Staircase and finish the 60k. At 8,000ft above sea level and 6,000 feet above the start of the race Angels Staircase offers great views of the surrounding North Cascades Mountains, including Glacier Peak, and the Methow River and Lake Chelan Valleys. Thanks for the idea Jesse Boisaubin and thanks Seven Hills for all the support of our races!
