General Information

New to trail running? Or looking for a quick trail run close to home? Head over to Camp Sekani in Spokane on Sunday morning, July 14 for the Spokatopia 5k Trail Run. It's the perfect start to a day of Spokatopia festivities for first-timers and experienced trail runners alike.

This run is open to all levels of runners looking to explore the trails and get a workout before Spokatopia launches for the day.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The Spokatopia 5k course is a true intro to the main elements of a trail run. From the starting line at the main Spokatopia site, you cruise a half-mile warmup on the fun rolling ribbon of the Upchuck trail. Then it tilts up for a half-mile climb where you get to practice the first rule of trail running: “walk the uphill, run the rest.” Near the top of the ridge, you leave the vertical behind and take in views of the river and Spokane Valley for a mile and a half before plunging a pulse-raising half mile down Carousel and Simple Tools. Before you know it, you’re back at the finish line.

Join us at 7:30 to pick up a few quick tips at the free trail running clinic, then stick around the main stage for a few minutes afterward when prizes are given for first and second place male and female runners as well your chance at a drawing for prizes from Black Diamond and others. Then enjoy day two of Spokatopia with the FREE WEEKEND ADVENTURE PASS you got for entering the race!

COST: $20. Includes Spokatopia 5k bandana and Spokatopia Weekend Adventure Pass (I know! It’s an amazing deal!)
