The 10th Annual Mt. Adams Endurance Ride returns to its Northwest roots on May 20, 2006
Based at the Mt. Adams Horse Camp in the Gifford-Pinchot National Park, the endurance ride offers five races from 12- to 75-miles long. This year, a ride & tie division has been added to the 25-mile distance. Ride & tie teams consist of one horse and two rider/runners, all three must cross the finish line to complete the race.
For more information about the ride, or to find out how you can become part of this exciting endeavor, check out the website at www.troutlake.org/endurance or contact ride manager Stephanie Irving at 395-2065 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The ride committee is always looking for volunteers. Remember, you don't need to be a rider (or even own a horse) to help out with trails, ribbons, awards, logistics, registration, set-up, clean-up or timing. As with all endurance sports, all you really need is a good heart. Pat Arnold, newswriter
