Snake River Island Hop

Surprise Yourself. April 22, 2017

The Snake River Island Hop (SRIH) is a USATF sanctioned 100km ultra marathon (with 50km option) designed for the person who has successfully completed a marathon and wants to see if they can push themselves to run farther, but gets intimidated by all of the ultra marathons out there that feature a lot of elevation gain and/or gnarly trails.  SRIH is run on the Columbia Plateau Trail in Eastern Washington State.  The course is flat.  The trail is mostly gravel and can be run with sturdy running shoes.   SRIH is designed to provide a positive and safe experience for beginning trail and ultra runners.  So instead of wondering if you can do it, come join us at the Snake River Island Hop and surprise yourself.

THE FIRST EVER SNAKE RIVER ISLAND HOP IS NOW A PIECE OF ULTRA RUNNING HISTORY!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU! Thanks to all the runners and volunteers who made the day a success.  We hope to have the salty dog veterans come back to run with us again next year and welcome the new runners looking to surprise themselves with a smile and open arms.

Where exactly is this run?

The Snake River Island Hop will take place at the southern portion of the Columbia Plateau Trail.  It starts and finishes at the Ice Harbor Dam trail head roughly 20 minutes north of Pasco Washington. 

Runners participating in the 50km event will run along the trail as far as the Snake River Junction and return to Ice Harbor Dam.  Runners in the 100km event will repeat the course a second time.
