Hello fellow runners, volunteers, and supporters. We are so grateful and excited to be bringing back the races that we were forced to cancel in 2020. I do not need to tell you what an uncommonly challenging and wildly unpredictable year it was. Now onward to 2021 with love, hope, and hills!!!
Here are the dates so far for our 2021 events:
Coyote Wall Sort of Virtual Trail Races (25K & 50K) - February 1 through March 31
Dark Divide 100 Miler – Friday, August 6 through Saturday, August 7
Dark Divide 50K and 17 Mile Fun Run Miler - Sunday, August 8
Coyote Wall 55K - Dates to be announced on February 15th
Coyote Wall 25K - Dates to be announced on February 15th
Wandering Idiot Festival of Hills (6 Hour, 12 Hour, 24 Hour) - Dates to be announced on February 15th
Dark Divide Trail Races, Coyote Wall Trail Races and Wandering Idiot Festival of Hills will all open on Ultrasignup as a waitlist on February 15th. We will switch over to paid registration once we have a better understanding of the course of the pandemic and the permits are finalized.
We are all hoping for a “normal” racing year of community and camaraderie. We will be following COVID-mitigated race plans and protocols as well as reducing registration caps until it is safe, feasible, and ethical to do otherwise.
While I have been through great difficulties this last year, I am keenly aware of my privilege, and of those whose burdens were much greater than mine. Stay safe, wear a mask, and please remember to be kind. Here’s to a hopeful 2021.
These races take place upon the ancestral lands of the Nomlaki, Patwin, Cowlitz, Klickitat, and Yakama peoples, who lived on and cared for these lands for thousands of years. We acknowledge the taking of their lands and the forced erasure of their way of life. We support their right to fully return their voice to decision-making and the management of these lands.
Be present; be grateful; live freely; love fully; take nothing for granted.
