The 10th annual US Trail Running Conference takes place at the Rosehill Community Center, 304 Lincoln Avenue, Mukilteo, WA 98275. The Rosehill Community Center enjoys the the most beautiful views and nicest facilities this area has to offer. The Center has floor-to-ceiling windows and stunning views of Possession Sound and Whidbey Island in Puget Sound.

   

Rosehill Community Center has complimentary parking for all attendees conveniently situated a short walk away from the Center entrance. The Center uses a trio of bins, for recycling, compost, and trash. Reusable glasses and containers will be used for all drinks. Snohomish PUD that supplies energy for the Center obtains their energy from 99% renewable sources. The Center accommodates and encourages the participation of people with disabilities.

The layout of the Conference room will enable the Conference to continue to provide an intimate, engaging atmosphere that promotes discussion from attendees and sponsors and exhibitors alike.

We are excited to bring the US Trail Running Conference to Mukilteo, and look forward to working with our partners Snohomish Sports Commission, and other contributing community departments.

The main hotel for Conference attendees is under negotiation. We will update here once full details are available.
