July 26th – Alpine Experience Olympia Traverse
September 6th – Alaska Airlines North Bend Iron Horse Traverse

Each event celebrates the life-cycle of wild salmon and offers divisions for Chinook (solo), Coho (tandem) Chum (relay) and Company Teams. We’re all out to have a good time. How ’bout you?
Join the Fun!
Ready to compete in the full Series? Here’s how you do it:
Solo, Tandem or Team you need to be in at least 3 of the 4 events.
Injuries, or scheduling challenges for team members, that’s OK. Remember it’s all about showing up and having fun. Besides, mixing it up gives that many more people the chance to get hooked. All we ask is that you use the same Team Name at every event.
We’ll recognize all the Chinook, Coho, Chum & Company Teams who complete the Series after the finish of the Bellingham Traverse – with something a little extra special for the top 3 in each division, based on overall time.
