Beacon Rock 25km & 50km Trail Run & Festival

If you haven't been to a Rainshadow run, you're missing out! Beacon Rock is a spectacular place in Oregon, and the run ends in a party, with live folk band The Pine Hearts, local craft beer, and fresh pizza from a mobile oven. Rainshadow events feel more like festivals than races, but you'll get your fair share of beautiful, fun, and long trail running in, too! You can sign up for the 25k or the 50k, or to help as a volunteer, and come camp and party on the trails with us! Registration here.

For more info or to sign up (it's free!) holler at Alicia, you can find her online at gonewilderness@gmail.com. Gals and guys welcome.

Gear requirements: running shoes or hiking boots, any athletic type clothes.
Navigation: we will provide a map.
Cost: free. Unless you want to buy snacks at End of the Line café, or a beer to celebrate!
Access: lots of places where the trail weaves in and out of civilization for easy meet up and bail outs.

Spring Adventure Season Kick Off Party

Spring Adventure Season Kick Off Party

Hey! For this event you need to get your ticket over here

Join GGW to celebrate the SPRING ADVENTURE SEASON!

WTF?
These parties are all about introducing a new friend to your passion for the outdoors, in a fun, social, random, ecstatic way, using a few party tricks-- to the point that they think this is so damn fun too! So, bring a friend who doesn't play outside as much as you!

SPRING??
Spring is all about longer days, sunny skies and warmer weather. We're getting stoked about longer hikes and trail runs, and warmer, sunnier days perfect for mountain biking & climbing sessions. As days get longer and longer, how could you possibly not love what's to come in this season?

WTF, PARTY?
Our adventure party will feature a surprise hiking adventure, with entertainment along the way, hidden treasures, and a social beer at the end. At these parties, Friday night meets the trail scene: you'll see glow sticks & disco balls, take some crazy wheatgrass shots, hang with amazing people, and stare up at the stars...

DETAILS PLS.

March 20th, 2015
6:30pm. Meet out front Bomber Brewing (1448 Adanc Street) to join the party bus to our surprise adventure location within 30 minutes of downtown Vancouver.  After our adventure, we'll drop everyone, conveniently, back at our fave Bomber Brewing around 10:00pm. Tickets: $12 for TWO people. Buy your ticket HERE!
