The Shrub Steppe 5 Trail Series
The "Shrub Steppe 5 Trail Series" is an organized series of trail running events and is hosted by both the Runners of the Sage and the Nomad Trail Runners of Eastern Washington. Participants in the series must sign up for it on this page so that we can track the progress of the entrants, but then they must also register (or volunteer) for each of the 5 separate running events, be accepted into those 5 events, and follow the rules for each event. Entrants must also run in each event too (or volunteer).
Local time: 6:21 PM
The Series consists of the following 5 events:
1. The Race up the Snake (any distance - March 2nd) sign up at: http://www.runnersofthesage.com/
2. The Badger Mountain Challenge (any distance - March 29th-30th) sign up at: https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=59764
3. The Jump Off Joe marathon or halfer (Sept. 7th) sign up at: https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=64955
4. The Chamna Chase (any distance - Oct.12th) sign up at: https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=64962
5. The Laliik-Rattlesnake Mountain half marathon (Nov. 3rd) sign up at: http://www.runnersofthesage.com/
Those that enter and complete all 5 events in the same year will be awarded a custom shrub-steppe painting created by a local artist. The awards will be handed out at the finish line of the Laliik half marathon on Nov. 3rd. Remember that volunteering at any of these events also qualifies you for the award! Participants running or volunteering at all 5 events must register for the Shrub Steppe 5 series by 3/28/2019. Since this series was created so late in the year, we are retroactively accepting entrants that participated in the Race up the Snake (March 2nd). If you wish to volunteer for one of the events, please contact the race director for that event. Please contact us with any questions you may have!
