THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED Because of the coronavirus outbreak and at the Washington State Governor's decree, we have had to postpone our event. We are currently trying to reschedule this event on May 29-30, 2020. As soon as we have approvals and new permits in place we will re-open registrations. Apologies for any inconvenience.
This event has been postponed from Mar 27, 2020 to May 29, 2020
Welcome to the Badger Mountain Challenge, one of Southeastern Washington's only ultramarathons. Badger Mountain in Richland, Washington is the most popular hiking and trail running area for the Tri-Cities, and offers expansive views of the beautiful Columbia Basin. The Badger Mountain Preserve was established in 2005 to ensure that this community will always have open spaces for outdoor recreation.
The 10th annual Badger Mountain Challenge will be held on March 27th and 28th, 2020. This run offers four distances; 15k, 55k, 50 miles and 100 miles. The 100 and 50 mile races start on Friday the 27th, and the 55k and 15k start on Saturday the 28th. This a great opportunity to be involved in a race that has a small town feel with all the support of a big race.
This will be a fun day for all, even those who aren't competitive and would just like to run or hike the course while enjoying the local ridges, awesome views and open spaces. All entrants can enjoy some post race food after the race.
We will also need volunteers in order for this race to be a success, so please volunteer if you are interested in helping! All volunteers will receive a free shirt with the race logo on it and a free entrance to a BMC 15km race in the future, or a discounted fee for the other longer distances.
Please be sure to provide an accurate email address while registering, as important email updates will be sent to the entrants as the race draws near. Remember to check your spam folder too, as batch emails often land there.
This is also a great opportunity to show your support for the health and fitness of our local community. To get more information on how you can get more involved and be a sponsor contact the race director!
Our 2020 race will now have a 15K ruck division too. Signing up in the ruck category means you will need to carry a backpack or rucksack that weighs between 20 and 30 lbs (not counting water or food used in race). No weight vests allowed. All ruck division finishers will get a custom Badger rucking patch!
The 50 and 100 Mile races will start on Friday @ 7am
Local time: 1:50 PM
The 55km will start on Saturday @ 7am
The 15km will start on Saturday @ 8am
