State Park Series (SPS)
#5 Riverside State Park
Welcome to Trail Maniacs State Park Series. SPS is the fastest growing trail series in the Northwest. We are excited to announce that Saucony will be our corporate sponsor for 2015. What does this mean??? Epic prizes: Shoes, shirts, hats and a little bit of everything. Last year we gave away over $2,700 in swag, trophies and point series prizes.
SPS is a trail run point series, including 5 mile and half marathon distances. We will count your best 5 out of 6 races in the series. SPS will include six state parks from two states (Idaho and Washington) one race per month from May thru October. SPS will have over $2,000.00 in prizes for the overall series. Come stay the weekend, each of the state parks offer camping and showers!
This year we want you to think of us as your “trail running family” like I have said in the past: “our races are like a family reunion but with people you enjoy!” So this year we will be incorporating a Friday evening potluck meal (we provide the pasta) and a Sunday social run. Plan on staying the weekend at our races and enjoy what these great state parks have to offer.
What if I only want to run one or two of the races? That’s not a problem, pick the race that fits your schedule best and I look forward to meeting you.
What if I am new to trail running? These races are perfect for you, start with the 5 mile runs and give it a shot.
The 1/2 marathon will have 3 aid stations and the 5 mile course will have 2 aid stations.
*** Each aid station will have Hammer nutrition products (Heed & gel), bananas and cookies.
