About Palouse Road Runners


The Palouse Runners was started in about 1973 to organize the “First Annual Crazy Days Run” between Pullman and Moscow. In the late 1970s or early 1980s, it became Moscow Road Runners, largely overseen by Archie George. In 1991, at the Depot in Pullman, the group was reorganized as the Palouse Road Runners.

The Palouse Road Runners serves the community by

  • promoting healthy running and exercise,

  • conducting competitive well-organized races,

  • encouraging workouts on trails of (un)known distances,

  • assisting many other community organizations who want to sponsor fun-run events, and

  • elevating running to the esteemed status it so richly deserves in the Moscow/Pullman communities!


Membership is renewed each year for $15 per individual or $20 for a family membership.  Membership fees are subsidized, since the cost of our membership-based RRCA insurance far exceeds the income from dues. Renew you membership through our UltraSignup.com Club Page or go old school and fill out our membership form to keep your membership current, whether you are renewing or new to the PRR.


We currently sponsor four road races each year:  the Snake River Half Marathon in March, the Palouse 100 K in April, Moscow Mountain Madness on the Sunday after Labor Day each September, and the Fall Flash 10K in October. Previous events include the Master’s Run, Albion Run, and the Women’s Run.


Contact us at palouseroadrunners@gmail.com to sign up to help with any of our races! We always need enthusiastic volunteers to help with water stops, start and finish setup, timing, and registration.
