The most user friendly ultra in the Northwest
Welcome to the Second Annual Snake River Island Hop 100km and 50km ultra marathon and 100km relay. This event is designed with the beginning trail/ultra runner in mind.
If you have completed a marathon and ever wondered if you could run farther but were daunted by the majority of ultras out there that feature a lot of elevation gain or more difficult trails than what the average road runner is used to, then the Snake River Island Hop is the event for you.
The course is on the Columbia Plateau Trail (about 20 minutes north of Pasco, Washington at the Ice Harbor Dam trail head) and is a USATF sanctioned event. It's beautiful and FLAT! The trail is mostly gravel and can be run with sturdy running shoes. No need to buy any special gear.
