Kaiser Woods in the Sub Black Hills are an indescribable and special place. Close to town, this private forest land, mixed with a new city park has been Olympia's underground playground for the serious adventurers for many years. The trails, built by mountain bikers are gnarly, steep and incredibly challenging.
You will climb every hill, bomb down every singletrack, cut through every hillside and run every cool section of this incredible wild place. The vertical gain is massive and you will earn it. Flat sections? Hardly exist.
These hills are tough, the woods are moody. This place is so wild that you can get turned around in an instant. The endless vertical gain at every turn can make you cry, or squeal with happiness.
This is a tough course and should not be your first trail race.
Wild Kaiser is brought to you by Einmaleins Events.
We are Olympia trail runners who love this city and its surrounding outdoor spaces. Inspiring people to get people out to explore and bringing folks together is our mission.
(13.something/almost 4,000ft. vertical gain & loss)

Final course details are still being worked out, but trust us, this will be a very very tough race. You will love it!
