With the closure of Skagit Provincial Park, the Fat Dog race has been cancelled for this year, but we would like to recognize all the incredible efforts of the race organizers, race volunteers, and the racers themselves for the preparation of this ultra-scenic race!
Not only is it an amazing feat to put on the event, but it brings people from all over the world to see the incredible wilderness of 3 provincial parks – Cathedral, Manning and Skagit.
One of the stipulations of entering the race is the requirement to do some trail work or volunteering. What an amazing sense of stewardship this creates and appreciation of the trails!
Unfortunately, this year, the wilderness was a bit too wild with fires in Cathedral and Skagit, and ultimately caused the cancellation of the race.
Thanks to Heather Macdonald and Mountain Madness Trail Running Races, for what, I’m sure, was a difficult decision, but I hear that there’s always the Brigade Race this September!
Welcome to all the racers coming to Manning Park this weekend to join the festivities and fun runs that are still planned!
