Skamania's Virtual 5K Challenge
It's time to get outside and recharge in nature. Join Skamania for a virtual 5k walk & run challenge this summer! While many organized events have been postponed during the pandemic, we want to provide you a fun opportunity to escape the house and exercise outdoors. Inside our 175 wooden acre forest are three trails, totaling just over 5 kilometers. Complete all three trails to receive an awesome prize! Skamania's virtual 5k challenge will begin June 27th and go through July 31st.
How to Participate
1. WALK OR RUN THE 5K at Skamania
Skamania's Creek Loop Trail, Lake Loop Trail, and Gorge Loop Fitness Trail together, total just over 5 kilometers (3.34 miles). Feel free to walk, run, or tackle the trails at your own pace! Along your way catch sights of specacular lakes, beautiful nature, and local wildlife. You can start your virtual 5k at any of the trailheads, just make sure you complete all three! Visit the front desk for trailhead locations.
2. KEEP TRACK ALONG THE WAY
There are many easy to use apps such as Strava or NRC, that track your distance, pace, and location during your hike. Simply open the tracking app of your choice when you begin, put your phone in your pocket, and go! The app will track your route as you complete all three trails.
3. SHOW US YOUR RESULTS
When finished, visit the Front Desk and show us your app screen, verifying you have completed all three trails. As a reward, you'll receive a voucher for half-off a beer in River Rock and an awesome Skamania Lodge reusable water bottle!
