The Traverse is an event designed to celebrate wild salmon. We chose to name our divisions after these regional icons.
This is our solo division. Also known as King Salmon, Chinook are an important keystone species of the Pacific Northwest. They are a vital food source for a diversity of wildlife, including orca whales, bears, seals and large birds of prey. Chinook salmon is also prized by people who harvest salmon both commercially and for sport.

Coho / (Tandem)
Coho need a buddy. Go crazy and mix it all up. You may leap frog, do legs together using tandem bikes or kayaks (or other self-propelled watercraft) pretty much whatever you feel like doing. Just as long as you’re being safe and having fun!

CHUM / Teams
Need all the help they can get. So they bring their friends. Usually, we see teams of 4, but we’ve seen everything from teams of 3 to teams of 15 (they had a big canoe). Feel free to include the kids- it’s a family event.
New in 2014 – Government Agencies will compete in their own CHUM category.
