Race Schedule

I will do my best to keep this page updated with up-coming XC and track races that allow open runners as well as road races that have certified courses. However, I would recommend you always check to make sure the race info is correct before you go to the race. When ever possible I have included the website address for the race. Please let me know if there are any corrections or additions that need to be made to this schedule.

  1. Can the Rainier to Ruston Rail-Trail Relay and Ultra be listed on your web site calendar? We have both running and walking relays as well as 50K and 50M ultra events. And, we are a qualifier for the famous Western States 100-mile Endurance Run. Here is some info from which you can extract the data you want to display.

    In a celebration of National Trails Day 2009, runners and walkers will take on the 7th annual Rainier to Ruston Relay and Ultra, down the Foothills Trail from the Carbon River entrance at Mt. Rainier National Park to Puget Sound. Solo walkers and walking teams do the first 27M to Orting, running teams do all 50M, and ultras do either 50K or 50M to Tacoma’s Ruston Way. The course passes through pristine wilderness and historic communities, following the old Northern Pacific railroad route. At each exchange walkers and runners ring a RR bell before handing off to their teammates. This event benefits the Foothills Rails-to-Trails Coalition which is dedicated to completing a contiguous, non-motorized, public trail from Mt. Rainier to Tacoma.

    Event Date: Saturday, June 6, 2009
    Race Headquarters: South Prairie, WA
    Distances: 27M solo walkers and walking relay teams over 6 legs; 50M running relay teams over 12 legs; 50K and 50M ultras
    Categories: solo walkers (men & women), walking relay teams (2, 3, & 6), running relay teams (2, 3, 4, & 6), 50K/50M ultras (men & women)
    Divisions: open, military, high school, collegiate, masters, super masters, challenged
