Due to limitations in accommodations at the first overnight control, the event is limited to 86 riders.

Riders will be admitted from the wait list only after cancellations bring the # of committed riders down below 86.


The cost of the ride will be $425 (100% due at registration via PAYPAL) and will include the following:

  • Motel accommodation at each of the three overnight controls.    Riders will be 2 to a queen or king bed.  Rooms will have 1-2 beds, so expect 1-3 roommates each night.
  • Baggage transport from the start to each overnight control, and back to the finish
  • Food at the overnight controls
  • Gender specific event t-shirt ( or other event schwag item, TBD) and finisher’s medal
  • Bike box storage at the start/finish hotel
  • UPDATE 5/30/16: Post-ride banquet now included for all riders!.   The post-ride breakfast banquet will be held at the finish hotel on Wednesday, June 22nd.  

The following will NOT be included, and are at the rider’s expense

  • Motel accommodation at the start/finish hotel. However, we will negotiate a group rate. Stay tuned for details.
  • Transport to/from the airport to the start/finish hotel in Mt. Vernon. However, we will endeavor to find volunteers to do hotel pickup.
  • Food outside of the overnight controls. We *may* have some manned controls in remote locations, but riders should be prepared to fend for themselves during the day. Locations of services will be clearly marked. Eastern WA is HOT in mid-June, so it is recommended that all riders carry three water bottles.
  • Transport back to the start/finish or an interim control if you abandon. We will *try* to find someone to help you, but simply can not guarantee someone will be available. Riders should be prepared to find their way on their own of they abandon.
  • Event jersey.   Details on purchasing a jersey can be found here.
  • Banquet tickets for guests are an added cost option at $20 each. Riders attend at no additional cost!


All riders MUST have completed a full series (200, 300, 400, 600) in 2015 or 2016. If using a 2016 series to qualify, all rides MUST be completed no later than May 29th. If a series is not completed by May 29th, the rider may apply to the Seattle RBA with evidence of the rider’s capability to complete the ride. In his sole discretion, the RBA may allow the rider to participate in the Cascade 1200.


Riders will be admitted from the wait list only after cancellations bring the # of committed riders down below 86.


If you must cancel, PLEASE do so as early as possible.  Not only will that maximize your refund, it will *also* enable wait-listed riders (many of whom will be travelling from afar) to make their travel reservations as early as possible.  Thank you!
