In its tenth 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.

Each race has their own individual restrictions (RD’s will specify) and all prizes must be used during 2015. The drawing will be held on January 8, 2015, so be sure to buy your calendars and send in the entries to be eligible for the drawings!

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

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 Flora Inc/Udo’s Oil, Cascade Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run, Destination Trail, Drymax Socks, Evergreen Trail Runs, Northwest Trail Runs, Rainshadow Running, White River 50M and UltraRunning Magazine 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!
