2014 Northwest Traverse Multi-Sport Series
The Northwest Traverse is a series of a multi-sport events celebrating the life cycle of wild salmon and the natural and urban challenges of their journey. See the ROOTS of the event.

Compete in the Full Series
To be eligible for SERIES Prizes, 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.
