Trail Running Film Festival
Sept. 3, 209
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Films start at 7 p.m.
The Palouse Road Runners are hosting a night of trail running films. Featured this year are The Source, which follows elite runner Courtney Dauwalter at the Tahoe 200, and Leadman: The Dave Mackey Story. Beer and wine will be available for sale. Admission is free but a donation would be appreciated.
Palouse Road Runners members and Moscow Mountain Madness participants (and Snake River Half finishers!) are invited to TWO FREE YOGA SESSIONS designed specifically for runners, sandwiching Moscow Mountain Madness. Both classes will be taught by Sheila Fitzgerald at Sanctuary Yoga, in the hot room, which will be turned down to 85F. feel free to bring your own mat, towel, and water. mats and towels are available to rent to the studio, as well as water to purchase, water from the fountain, and showers.
1 p.m.: pre-race shakeout flow (60 minutes)
this yoga session is about moving with your breath, getting loose, and enjoying the hot room. all are encouraged to listen to your own body, take directions as suggestions and let your own body be your guide. the session will have more of an emphasis on breath work, light cardio and hip openers, and LESS about strenuous holds and balance postured (unless you want to!). This session is NOT meant to tire us out before the race!
7 p.m. post-race recovery flow (60 minutes)
Hamstrings tight? Quads on fire? We’ve got you covered. This session will have all the juicy hip and heart openers your body craves after a long hard trail race! There will be an emphasis on breath work and stretching and relaxing. Think Yin and Restorative. there will be minimal light cardio to acclimate us to the hot room (85F), and lots of passive and floor stretching.
We're a little over a month away from this year's Moscow Mountain Madness 5 mile and 1/2 Marathon and there are plenty of you that still need to sign up. Conditions on the mountain have been great this summer and lots of work on the trails has kept the brush down to a minimum. Sign-up today!
Join us for a 10K (6.2 mile) race or a 5K (3.1 mile) fun run. There is also a free 1k kids run through Mountain View Park. There are prizes for the most colorful costume, so be like The Flash and don your most colorful running apparel!
Register online at Ultrasignup.com: https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=69704. There is no registration on the day of the race!
10k – $15
5k – $12
Kids run is free - sign up day of race only

Varsity Seven chronicles the true story of Spokane, Washington's running scene from 1947 to day. What football is to the south, cross country running is to the northwest. And in Spokane, Washington cross country running is king.
Each fall thousands of elementary, middle, and high school students traverse the roads and trails, training and competing for their chance to win. Just as some of the greatest Kenyan runners in the world come from one small town, in an area called the Rift Valley, Spokane continues to supply some of America's greatest runners. The Greater Spokane League (GSL) is comprised of 10 teams. Five of those high schools, half of the league, have competed at the coveted Nike Cross Nationals since the inaugural race in 2004. Since 1979 Spokane has sent male or female distance runners to 24 of the 38 Foot Locker National Championships: that is over 60% of the time one town has been represented on a National level. There are over 266,000 male high school distance runners and 226,000 female high school runners comprising over 29,000 teams in the United States. The GSL is a statistical outlier in every respect. What makes this small city a Rift Valley of American Distance Running? By delving into the history of the athletes, coaches, volunteers and families that have set this city apart the answer becomes clear. Varsity Seven is more than just a story of top teams and times. It is the journey of the Hawkins family. From 1993 to 2010 these seven children competed during one of the most competitive eras and in one of the most competitive leagues in the country.
Come learn about running in the inland northwest.
