COVID-19 UPDATE: TRULY, MADLY, VIRTUALLY.
The 2020 Sasquatch Shuffle is a go...virtually! While there's still significant community transmission in McCall (and construction in Ponderosa State Park), we want to make sure you can have a safe and enjoyable loopy day. We care about keeping communities safe. We also want you all to have fun and for the Sasquatch tradition to live on, too, so here's the deal: The 2nd annual Sasquatch Shuffle will be virtual in 2020.
In true Sasquatch tradition, we'll have a range of options available to you, including the return of the Triple Threat. Unlike during last year's Sasquatch Shuffle, when all of your runs had to fit in the space of a single weekend, you'll have the entire month of October to fit in your desired challenges—whether that's the Triple Threat, 50k, 30k, or 10k!
COME FROLICK WITH US IN THE FALL FOLIAGE!
Join us for the second annual Sasquatch Shuffle 50k/30k/10k/Triple Threat: A brilliantly beautiful set of FUNdraising fun runs through one of the best parks in Idaho, for as many miles as you see fit! ALL proceeds/registration fees go to Ponderosa State Park trails via Friends of Ponderosa and Endless Trails. This year: Stay local, stay safe, and run the hardest course you can find in your backyard. Challenge yourself while keeping it fun.
As McCall locals who also founded a trail-centric non-profit (Endless Trails) in 2013, RDs Matt & Kerri log hundreds of trail work hours in the Park each year, and are passionate about creating fun, low-key events for trails. This is a sister race of the Sharlie Shuffle 6- & 12-Hour, which will be four years old in 2020.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2020 THROUGH SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2020: TRIPLE THREAT, 50k, 30K, 10K, or your desired combination.
Sign up and run whichever distance most appeals to you—if you're feeling particularly brave, you can even sign up to run all three (see below for more information on the Triple Threat option!). Every single runner will get something awesome simply for showing up to run, but this isn't your typical plastic/throwaway medal sort of event.
In addition to being heaps of F-U-N, and a great way to challenge yourself as trail-running season starts wrapping up, we also avidly support local businesses, which means as many prizes as possible will come from the McCall area.
TAKE ON THE TRIPLE THREAT!
Are you brave or foolish enough to take on all three distances? Register for the Triple Threat option in the 50k registration and you'll automatically also be registered for the 30k and 10k as well. We'll keep track of all Triple Threat participants' cumulative time and have special prizes for everyone who successfully completes all three race distances. Think of this as a great way to give yourself a great end-of-season challenge and really get to know what you can do!
NEED EVEN MORE INCENTIVE? THIS A FUNDRAISER FOR LOCAL TRAILS!
As McCall locals, these are our beloved backyard trails, which means we're very passionate about them, and extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with Ponderosa State Park to ensure these trails get the continued love and support they need to thrive.
We've kept prices for the virtual event at a modest $20.
This race, like all of our other Endless Trails FUNdraising trail races, is a fundraiser for local trails, so any and all funds that don't go to permitting fees/awesome aid and prizes will be donated to Ponderosa State Park via our Northwest 501(c)3 non-profit—to support ongoing trail work, trail education, and trail advocacy. We'll be accepting cash and check donations on the day of the event, too, and you'll also have the option to make an additional donation to Endless Trails as you're registering. Every little bit helps, and all of it goes back to work done in Ponderosa! Which means you can feel doubly good about your registration fees and any additional donations you make being put to good use. It also means we'll give you extra high-fives of gratitude every chance we get.
Race day can be any day in October of your choosing. It could be October 1st or October 7th or October 12th or October 31st or any day in between, or if you're running multiple distances or Triple Threat-ing, it could be multiple days. For each particular race distance (50k, 30k, 10k), the only requirement is that you run the entire run at once.
We'll have the virtual challenge open for the entirety of October, so you can set a day in advance for yourself, or wait until a day that you like. We ask you to challenge yourself, though, in the spirit of Sasquatch (which is normally run on a 6.79-mile loop).
To be eligible for performance-related prizes, we'll ask you to verify your distance and time with a Garmin or Strava, etc. If you're just out to challenge yourself and have a good time, though, we're a little more laid back than most.
If you're competing for prizes (performance-related), paused time on your watch still counts against your result. Keep in mind that the days are getting shorter (so you may want a headlamp at some point, depending on when you start or finish), keep it local to where you live (because we all want to respect and encourage community health), and have fun!
We know this page is full of information, but if you still have questions, feel free to check the Sasquatch Shuffle race page—http://www.endlesstrails.us/sasquatch-shuffle.html—to see if your question might already be answered there. If it's not, feel free to shoot us an email at allthetrails[at]gmail[dot]com.
Local time: 11:54 PM
Hope to see you in October!
