Tentative 2012 Rainshadow Running Race Schedule

I'm only in beginning of the process of obtaining the permits for these races so it is possible(but unlikely) that a race or two will have the date changed but I know a lot of you are trying to figure out your plans for next year already so I thought I'd share what I'm working on. Other than the Orcas Races (which are already sold out) I have not updated the websites yet and I'm still not sure when registration will open(Gorge Waterfalls 50k will be the next to open and it will hopefully happen sometime before mid November).

Here are the dates* for the 2012 races:

Jan-28 Orcas Island 25K
Feb-4 Orcas Island 50K
Mar-25* Gorge Waterfalls 50K
Apr-21* Yakima Skiyline Rim 50K/25K
May-20* Sun Mountain 50M/50K/25K
Jun-10* Winthrop 26.2/13.1
Jun-17* Beacon Rock 50K/25K
Aug-11* Angels Staircase 50M/50K/25K
Sep-8* North Cascades PCT 100K
Sep-15* Cle Elum 50K/25K
Oct-6* Mt. Spokane 50K/25K
Dec-8* Deception Pass 50K/25K

* Dates are tentative so don't book that flight just yet! I hope to firm up all the dates by the end of November and some of them will probably be firmed up much sooner. Stay tuned....

Deception Pass 50k and 25k Now Sold Out

Sorry if you missed out on this first year race, apparently it was even more popular than we thought it would be. There will be no waiting list-- the race has actually been overfilled with the expectation that about 10% will not show up on race day which will get us down to our limit of 200 runners. 

Stay tuned for the announcement of our 2012 race calendar and the opening of some of those races(most of which are expected to sell out very quickly). To make sure you get the announcement you have a variety of options:

Thanks Everyone for your support!
