Wild Woman run in TL July 18
Over 200 women will converge in Trout Lake on July 18 for the 4th Annual Wild Woman Trail Marathon, 50K, or Relay for the good trails, good food, and good friends. The Wild Woman is a trail run created by and for women. If running a marathon or 50K is too much, participants can form teams with up to four member with four different legs varying in length from 4.6 to 8 miles. The run starts early, so racers can camp under the stars onsite at the base of Mt. Adams (also a few lodging options nearby for those who’d rather have a bed). After the run, rejuvenate with post-run yoga poses, splash in the cold water tubs, and refuel with some outrageous lunch compliments of Tofurky. Wild Woman is a no-waste event (so BYO hydration pack or water bottles) and a portion of proceeds goes to Helping Hands Against Violence, a non-profit organization in the Gorge that supports victims of domestic violence through shelter, advocacy, education, and outreach. Online registration open until July 16th (no registration on race day): www.wildwomanmarathon.com or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
