Description

NOTE: All registration is online through this site. There will be NO day-of onsite registration. 

A wintertime race to remember! There are three races to choose from; Coed Recreational, Women's Competitive, and Men's Competitive. 

FORMAT: Each race has a separate start time and will take up to 80 participants. Participants will be assigned a starting position. Race packets will be available at the assigned start position approximately 20 minutes before each race. The course will be 2.5 miles in length on the woodchip/dirt/gravel trails at Big Cross in Pasco. 

TEAMS: We have added the option to create teams in 2023 for each of the races. This is for spirit and for bragging rights. We will keep track of and score teams as in a regular Cross Country meet with first 5 team members scoring. At this point the only reward will be bragging rights. Although not required we encourage teams to create and wear a team uniform.

SPECTATORS: Spectators may view the race from the designated spectator areas and/or along the course. They must however stay out of the start & finish area and avoid crossing over the race path when a race is in progress.

VOLUNTEERS: Volunteers are needed, if interested in helping as a volunteer for set-up, course monitoring, or at the start/finish line please contact kubalekb@pasco-wa.gov.  All Volunteers will be required to arrive at 8:00am for the volunteer meeting

All runners, spectators and volunteers should stay home if sick and follow other COVID safety protocols.

GAITER: All race participants will receive a neck gaiter face-cover.

Participants will be emailed their starting position 1 day prior to the race (i.e. "Red 10", "Pink 7", etc) so please verify your email is correct on your runsignup.com account and watch your email the day before the race. As participants arrive they should proceed to their assigned start position, where they will find their race packet including bib, safety pins, and commemorative gaiter in a bowl of the color and number that corresponds to their start position. Race packets will be ready and available at your assigned start position 20 minutes prior to your specific race start time. The race bib must be secured in front, on the middle of the chest, so that it is completely visible.
