Rachel Carson Trail Challenge Dinner & Check-In

Dinner and check-in for Rachel Carson Trail Challenge, Homestead Challenge, and Friends & Family Challenge participants
Important: There is limited parking at the Lodge and only vehicles carrying at least three people will be permitted to park there, even those who only want to pick up their tags and not stay for dinner. Vehicles with fewer people must carpool from another lot, such as across from the skating rink. Wait next to the Olympia shelter to get picked up by vehicles needing more people for the 0.7 mile ride to the Lodge.

Pasta dinner buffet for participants and tag & map pickup the evening prior to the Challenge. Veteran Challengers will be on hand to answer questions and offer advice. Participants who can't attend will pick up their tag & map at the start on Saturday morning.

Each Friends & Family Challenge team is entitled to one pasta dinner ticket. Tickets for other teammates and all non-participants are $20 each ($10 for children under 13), payable at the door (cash only).

The dinner buffet includes rigatoni with tomato Parmesan sauce (vegan and gluten-free option available), pasta with a hearty ground beef based tomato sauce, elbow macaroni & cheese with a creamy cheddar cheese sauce, rolls & butter, tossed salad, cookies, lemonade, iced tea, and water.

Stick City Brewing will be offering drafts and cans of a custom hazy IPA (6.6% ABV). A 12-ounce draft is $6, a 16-ounce can is $7, and a four-pack of cans is $20 (cash or charge).

Join us for a hike to the dinner! A leisurely 1-mile hike up to the Lodge for the dinner & chip pick up will allow you to mingle with other participants while also avoiding what could be a traffic jam at the Lodge.
