From Press Release –
In its eight 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 preserves, enhances and promotes the trails we love to play on. With your support, ALL proceeds will be donated to WTA.
Last year, we experimented with a drawing for free race entries. It was a success and this year we have 20 race entries to raffle off. For each calendar you purchase, there is an entry form on the inside back cover of the calendar to fill out and send in. The list includes:
• Chuckanut 50K
• Cascade Crest 100 (2 entries)
• Rainshadow Running Event
• Defiance 50K
• Evergreen Trail Runs Event (2)
• Northwest Trail Runs Event (2)
• Hagg Lake 25/50K
• Leona Divide 50
• Ray Miller 50/50
• Bellingham Trail Marathon
• Bellingham Trail Run Series Event
• Capitol Peak 50M/55K
• Squamish 50
• Vashon 50K
• Guerilla Running Mountain Marathon (2)
• Miwok 100k (guaranteed entry only)
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 (RD’s will specify) and all prizes must be used during 2013. The drawing will be held on January 6, 2012, so be sure to buy your calendars and send in the entries as soon as you can to be eligible for the drawings!
In addition, our primary sponsor, Flora/Udo’s Oil, will be having a monthly giveaway of various product!
