Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
One of the greatest resources to find awesome trail races in your area just got a huge face lift. In fact the entire website was updated and with it a new standard for races to be a ‘Trail Sisters Approved’ event:
- Announcing the NEW TS Race Calendar and a 2024 NEW TS Approved Standard!
- Starting in 2024, races who are TS Approved must include a Pregnancy & Postpartum Policy.
- Whether planned or unplanned, an expected or unexpected start or end to a pregnancy, healing and recovery time are required for a women’s overall health. Policy details are decided by the race director, but we recommend at least one to two years deferral depending on the race distance, and/or a refund option.
- The TS Calendar now includes upgraded search functionality, advanced filters (premier events w/ qualifiers), viewing options, and a user friendly backend for RDs!
