You can check out who’s running by viewing the list of registered entrants on UltraSignup.

***You may enter both competitions, but no double dipping. If you submit predictions for both competitions, please also indicate which 2017 Yakima race you would prefer to run.***

Before entering, please be certain that you would be able to run the races on offer. We do want to make sure that these sought after entries will go to runners who will use them.

Rules, Entry Details and Tips:

  • This contest is open to anyone in the USA or Canada. You do not have to be entered to run the Gorge Waterfalls race to win.
  • You may enter both competitions, but no double dipping. If you submit predictions for both competitions, please also indicate which 2017 Yakima race you would prefer to run. In the event you win both competitions we’ll award you the preferred entry and then drill down to second place to award the other one.
  • We acknowledge all email entries, if you don’t get a reply, we haven’t received your entry.
  • Submit 3 names:
    The three women or three men that you think will get to the finish line fastest.
  • Points system used, and tips:
    – Try to pick three finishers
    – three finishers will beat two podium places and a DNS/DNF
    – Your picks’ place will be subtracted from their actual finishing place. Fewest points wins!
    (eg…you pick Louie Trailpug to place first, and the crazy dog finishes as lucky number seven. That’s 6 points for your “team”)
  • Submit the winner’s predicted finishing time:
    The gun time you predict the male/female winner will finish in.
  • In the event of a tie-break, we’ll use the predicted finishing time to declare a winner. Closest time wins. If that fails, we’ll go to first past the post by using the time stamp on email entries.
  • You may want to see who, and how many people are signed up to run:
    the Gorge Waterfalls 50k – view the official registered 50k entrants list
  • 1 entry per person/per competition
  • 1 win per person per year

Rainshadow Running Gorge Waterfalls 100k 2015




ALTRA Rainshadow Running Prediction Contest

Gorge Waterfalls 100k, April 8th 2017.

WS-Golden-Ticket-Race
The 2017 Rainshadow Running Gorge Waterfalls 100k is a Western States 100 Mile Endurance Race ALTRA Golden Ticket Race! This means that the top two (2) female and top two (2) male finishers will automatically qualify for entry into the 2017 Western States 100 event. In the case that the first, or second place participant is already in Western States (or decides to opt out), the automatic bid will slide to third place, fourth place, and subsequently down to fifth place as needed (no places below fifth will be accepted). Winners will receive their invitation via email and have two weeks from the qualifying race to complete the registration, including paying the entry fee.

As ALTRA is the presenting sponsor for Western States, the prize for the ALTRA Rainshadow Prediction Contest #5: Gorge Waterfalls 100k will be:
a FREE PAIR OF ALTRA Running SHOES!

For this one, we’d like you to look at the Gorge Waterfalls 100k entrant’s list and decide which two speedy men, and which two speedy women, will pick up those coveted ALTRA Golden Tickets and earn admission to Western States. Bear in mind, that this might not necessarily be the two winners, if any of the fastest runners decline the entry the ALTRA Golden Ticket might slide down as far as fifth place before turning to dust. Potential recipients have two weeks to register after the qualifying race, so we won’t be looking at the Rainshadow podium to determine our winners. Winners will be declared once the ALTRA Golden Ticket recipients are confirmed and listed on this page: ALTRA GOLDEN TICKET RACES

Tie-breaker – submit your prediction for the overall winner’s finishing time.

To win the FREE PAIR OF ALTRA SHOES, predict:
who will win the ALTRA GOLDEN TICKETS (2 men and 2 women)
PLUS
the overall winner’s finishing time (tie-breaker)

Email us your predictions
