2017 Tribute to the Trails Calendar Project

November 20, 2016

In its twelfth year, the “Tribute to the Trails” Calendar Project was established as a fundraiser for the Washington Trails Association (WTA). WTA is a non-profit organization which creates, preserves, enhances and advocates for the trails we love to play on. With your support, ALL proceeds will be donated to WTA.

The project is the brainchild of WTA member, photographer and runner, Glenn Tachiyama, and WTA’s past board president, Wendy Wheeler-Jacobs.  Last year, the project raised more than $27,000 and over the years has raised more than $174,000.

The price of the calendar is $23 online* / $20 in-store and may be purchased from:

* the stores are volunteering their time to sell our calendars. When they sell online, their credit card and PayPal processing charges & shipping material need to be covered, which is why the cost to purchase online is $3 higher. Postage is NOT included.

The calendar comes with a chance to win race entries. For each calendar you purchase, there is an entry form on the inside back cover to fill out and send in for a drawing to be held on February 18th, 2017. The list includes:

For Miwok, you’ll still need to pay the entry fee, but if you entered the lottery and didn’t get selected, this could be your 2nd chance! Each race has their own individual restrictions/qualifications (RD’s will specify) and all prizes must be used during 2017.

Everyone involved with this project does so on a voluntary basis so that we’re able to donate all proceeds to WTA. We credit the generous community support that we’ve received for our success and we’d like to thank Hoka One One, Cascade Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run, Destination Trail, Drymax Socks, Evergreen Trail Runs, Northwest Trail Runs, Pacific Coast Trail Runs,  Rainshadow Running and White River 50M for sponsoring the calendar, the running stores for volunteering their time and support, the race directors/running clubs that contributed additional $$/race entries and the athletes and trails who made these images possible!

Thanks in advance for supporting our project and we’d love to hear what you think!
