“Up Chuck Challenge”— Dave Dutro
Race - Jul 14, 2019
A fast, fun race to the top of Beacon Hill above the Spokane River. $20 registration before July 8 ($25 late registration), includes an Up Chuck Challenge finishers bandana and aid stations at the top of Beacon and at the bottom at Sekani Meadows. Youre on your own for the rest of the race, so plan accordingly for the summer heat.
The first annual Up Chuck Challenge trail run starts at Camp Sekani Park on the Up Chuck Trail for a fun, winding, nearly all singletrack climb to the top of Beacon Hill. The 4.3 mile-long course gains nearly 1,000 feet of total elevation, with a few dips, grunts, twists and turns to keep the mostly mellow and meandering racecourse interesting. The race is timed on the up only, with another 2.3 mile run or walk back to the start at Sekani Meadows where the 1st annual Spokatopia Outdoor Adventure Festival will be underway (beer garden opens at 10:30 a.m.).
