2023 RACE INFO
We are back from a brief hiatus and ready to run!
2023 race day is scheduled for October 1, 2023.
The Sekani trail run is a 5k/10k event (plus a free Kids’ 1k) located at Spokane’s Camp Sekani Park, an incredible 125 acre natural park bordering beautiful Minnehaha. The run is an adventure run/hike/walk race with 100% dirt trails and fabulous course challenges with ~700 feet of elevation gain for the 10k run! The trails run above the Spokane River and provide great views of the City of Spokane and surrounding areas.
The Kid’s 1k starts at 9:30 am; followed by the 10k start at 10 am; and the 5k start at 10:30 am.
This is a great event for both experienced trail runners and those getting into trial running for the first time. If this is your first trial run, be warned, you will get addicted to trail running!
This event is 100% volunteer run and all proceeds benefit Franklin Elementary school’s APPLE program.
Registration is now open!
Be sure to register early for the best price and for the commemorative finisher t-shirt.

We hope to see you there!
The 5k course takes you up and over “Upchuck” until the aid station. Then you will run back down “Dan” until it connects to “Simple Tools,” which you will take all the way back to the start/finish!. The course will be well marked.
There is roughly 430 feet elevation gain on the 5k course.
The 10k course takes you up and over “Upchuck” and past the aid station. You will then connect with “Will’s Traverse” for some of my favorite single track of the course. From “Will’s” Traverse” you will hop onto “Airport Escalator” as you head up Beacon Hill, then back onto “Upchuck” for the last climb to the top. From there you will start your descent, starting with “Tire Trail” then connecting once again to “Upchuck” (though a completely different section), then on to “Disorderly Conduct” and “The yard” until the aid station. From the aid station you will continue down “Dan” until it connects to “Simple Tools,” which you will take all the way back to the start/finish!. The course will be well marked.
There is roughly 830 feet elevation gain on the 10k course.
5k: There will be one aid/water station on the 5k course. The aid/water station is located after mile 2, just before you start your final push to the finish line.
10k: There is one aid/water station on the 10k course, but you will pass it twice. The 10k course is shaped sort of like a figure 8 or a bow (so you have new amazing trial and views the entire time!). Due to the shape of the 10k course, the aid/water station is ideally located in the center of the figure 8 (or bow). You will pass it first after mile 2, and again just after mile 5.
Please help us keep this amazing park clean by depositing all garbage (including cups, gel and energy bar wrappers, etc.) in the provided receptacles.
Medals will be awarded to the top three males and females in both the 5k and 10k divisions.
Dogs are great, but please leave them at home for this event.
