This past weekend both distances of the Yakima Skyline Rim 50k/25k sold out. I'll be posting on the race website the updated entrants list shortly. Those of you who missed out but still want to do some racing in April in the Northwest you have a few good options to choose from(not as beautiful and hard as Yakima Skyline Rim but still good events): Yakima Canyon Road Marathon(Apr 2), Soaring Eagle 5m/10m/26.2/50k(apr 10), Squak Mountain 12k/13.1/50k(Apr 23) and Captiol Peak 55k/40m(Apr 30). I would have included Peterson Ridge Rumble 20m/40m(Apr 10) on the list but that race also sold out!
The next three races in the Rainshadow(Sun Mountain, Beacon Rock and Cle Elum) all have their registrations open and are filling up fast. As Lorie Alexander of British Columbia said when she heard Yakima Skyline Rim had filled before race day(just like our other two races this year Orcas Island and Gorge Waterfalls), "Sounds like we should sign up for all your races now!" That's good advice if you don't want to be left out.
