Hello fellow runners, volunteers, and supporters. We are so grateful for your participation in our previous events! We are filled with endless joy and gratitude at how well our first full calendar of races went. Thank you so much for being a part of this incredible year of mirth, magic, and running in some of the most beautiful places on Earth!
We are also excited to be launching a new race and a new calendar of community runs as well… stay tuned for more news on that! This year we got to add some lovely new faces to the Wonderland Running staff as well. All of us here at Wonderland Running are very much looking forward to our upcoming races with love, hope, and hills!!!
As always, Wonderland Running is thrilled, honored, and humbled to announce the dates of our upcoming races below:

Wandering Idiot Festival of Hills (6 Hour, 12 Hour, 24 Hour) - No 2024 Race; 2025 Date TBD
Each one of these races take place upon ancestral lands that were taken from the Nomlaki, Patwin, Cowlitz, Klickitat, and Yakama peoples. They lived upon and cared for their homelands for thousands of years. We acknowledge the taking of their lands and the forced erasure of their way of life. Wonderland Running fully supports the respect and restoration of rights of indigenous peoples from whom these lands were taken.
Starting in 2024, race registration will be free for all Native American/indigenous runners. This was long overdue; not just for Wonderland Running, but for trail racing and sport as a whole. In a world where indigenous rights and history are still infrequently discussed, we do find utility and educational value in land acknowledgments. But we needed to do something more than just words. This felt like an easy, correct, and just implementation.
Be present; be grateful; live freely; love fully; take nothing for granted.
~Sean Harrasser, Wonderland Running
