Good morning fellow runners, volunteers, and supporters. We very much regret to announce that we have made the decision to cancel the Dark Divide 100 Miler & Wandering Idiot Festival of Hills for this year. Here’s to a hopeful 2021.
I have have poured my time, my money, and my heart over the last year into sharing these magical places with you. It is a very painful and costly decision to make, but logistically and ethically it just feels right.
We spent a lot of time re-designing COVID-mitigated race plans. However, with cases spiking we could no longer logistically or in good conscience put on these races. This is especially true given the disproportionate vulnerability of native populations, the limited resources of rural communities, and the gathering of people from all over the country.
I am keenly aware of my privilege, and of those much harder hit that myself, but honestly, I am pretty goddamned heartbroken.
Details will be sent out to registered runners and waitlist runners as soon as I have a chance to catch my breath. Stay safe, wear a mask, and please remember to be kind.
Be present; be grateful; live freely; love fully; take nothing for granted.
Ancestral lands of the Nomlaki, Patwin, Cowlitz, and Yakama peoples.
