Hello fellow runners, volunteers, and supporters. We are so grateful for your participation in our 2021 events. We are filled with endless joy at how well these races went, including the daunting but rewarding task of putting on a first year 100 Miler in the 80,000 acre wildscapes of the Dark Divide. Thank you so much for being a part of this incredible year of growth, joy, and running in some of the most beautiful places on Earth.
We are so grateful and excited to be bringing back the only canceled event of 2021: The Wandering Idiot Festival of Hills. I do not need to tell you how uncommonly challenging and wildly unpredictable this year has been. We here at Wonderland are very much looking forward to 2022 with love, hope, and hills!!!
Wonderland Running will be hosting all of their events in 2022. Wonderland Running is thrilled, honored, and humbled to announce the dates of our 2022 races below:
Wandering Idiot Festival of Hills (6 Hour, 12 Hour, 24 Hour) - May 14-15, 2022
Dark Divide 100 Miler - Friday, August 5 through Saturday, August 6, 2022
Dark Divide 50K and 17 Mile Fun Run - Sunday, August 7, 2022
Coyote Wall 55K - Saturday, October 29, 2022

With vaccines now being widely distributed, we are all hoping for a “normal” racing year overflowing with community and camaraderie. We will continue to follow COVID-mitigated race plans and protocols as well as possibly reducing registration caps unless 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 and please remember to be kind. Here’s to a hopeful and vibrant 2022.
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.
