We are very excited to announce that registration for the 2017 Broken Arrow Skyrace, presented bySalomon, opens this Saturday, October 1st at 8am PST! The event will occur on June 16-17th, 2017 at world-famous Squaw Valley, California!
Donner Party Mountain Runners will receive 20% off their entry, by obtaining a discount code from firstname.lastname@example.org prior to entering.
After the wonderful response to this year’s event, we are even more excited for year two! Since late June, we’ve been busily and enthusiastically planning the 2017 edition for your enjoyment. As new race directors, we’re very proud of what we created. However, we have also been super transparent about how we need to improve in 2017. Your feedback has been vital in this process and we really took your advice to heart. I think you’ll be very stoked on what 2017 has in store for you!
Like last year, the event will feature Vertical K (VK), 26K and 52K races and will be a part of the US Skyrunning series. The inaugural event featured some serious talent, including Dakota Jones, Tim Tollefson, Cody Lind, Alex Nichols, Max King, Ryan Ghelfi, Sarah Keyes, Joelle Vaught, Anne-Marie Madden, Larisa Elaine Dannis, Meredith Edwards, and many, many more.
However, as much as we love having a super competitive field, our goal is to provide a unique and memorable mountain running experience to runners of ALL abilities.
At Broken Arrow, we will run hard and then we will celebrate…TOGETHER! This year, we have moved the VK to Friday so that the longer races can happen on Saturday. That means we will have one hell of a post-race PARTY on Saturday night!
We’re so honored that you continue to believe in us and can’t wait to play with you at The Broken Arrow Skyrace next June. Make sure to follow our Facebook page HERE for continuous updates regarding course specifics, photos, and the litany of events during a glorious summer weekend in Lake Tahoe!
Thank you and be well,
Brendan Madigan, Race Director
