About

As of the year 2022 the Run with Faith sponsored by Issaquah Christian Church (ICC) is suspended.  Thanks for your past support and God bless you.  

ICC inaugurated the Run with Faith community run in 2013 as a fund raiser for a local charity,  Compassion House of Issaquah.  Compassion House had been serving the Issaquah community since 1998 offering faith-based, temporary housing and restorative services for families that are transitioning from homelessness and are looking for a fresh start.  In 2019 Compassion House was absorbed into a parent organization with the same mission, Acres of Diamonds.

All of the proceeds from the Run with Faith race will support these causes.

Set in the shadow of Tiger Mountain, the RwF introduces the runner to the quaint and historic town of Issaquah as well as the extensive trail system on Tiger. The 5k route is a moderately difficult out and back, about half on the Tiger Mountain trail system and half on city streets and sidewalks. The 10k route borrows from the 5k course and is about ¾ trail, featuring a short, steep, technical section ascending to the Tradition Lake Plateau. Most runners will power walk this section, which gives way to a thickly-forested single-track that follows the undulations at the edge of the plateau.  

The start and finish are at ICC on Issaquah-Hobart Rd SE, just on the south edge of town.
