The 2nd annual Up Chuck Challenge trail run kicks off the Spokatopia Outdoor Adventure Festival Saturday July 9 at Camp Sekani Park at 9:30 a.m. (10 a.m. for the 1.5 miler). Start on the Up Chuck Trail for a fun, nearly all singletrack 5k climb to the top of Beacon Hill (1,000 feet of elevation gain). New this year, run or walk the 1.5 mile “Up Chuck Lite” course to the top of Camp Sekani. The race is timed on the up only, with another 2.3 mile run or walk back to the start for the 5k, and a half mile walk/run back down for the Up Chuck Lite 1.5 miler. Pick up your race bandana back at the start at the Spokatopia festival and hit the beer garden, bike demo are or Boulder Beach to try out paddleboards. More info at Spokatopia.com.
