From Press Release –
In its ninth 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.
Our drawing of free race entries continues to grow with 28 entries this year! For each calendar you purchase, there is an entry form on the inside back cover to fill out and send in. The list includes:
- Baker Lake 50K/100K
- Bellingham Trail Marathon
- Bellingham Trail Run Series
- Capitol Peak 55K/50M
- Carkeek 12 Hour
- Cascade Crest 100M (2)
- Chuckanut 50K
- Coastal Trail Runs
- Cottontail 6 & 12 Hour
- Evergreen Trail Runs (2)
- Guerilla Running Mountain Marathon (2)
- Hagg Lake 25K/50K
- Lake Padden Trail Half Marathon (2)
- Mogollon Monster 100M
- Northwest Trail Runs (2)
- Peterson Ridge Rumble 20M/40M (2)
- Rainshadow Running
- Squamish 23K/50K/50M
- Vashon Island 10M/50K
- White River 50M (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 2014. The drawing will be held on January 2, 2014, so be sure to buy your calendars and send in the entries to be eligible for the drawings!
In addition, our co-primary sponsor, Scott Sports will be giving away a free pair of shoes each month!
