Mt. Spokane State Park has one main entrance at the end of State Road 206, otherwise known as Mt. Spokane Park Drive, about 15 miles east of U.S. Hwy 2. The Park office is just inside the boundary on the left. The Selkirk lodge is a little over 3 1/4 miles up the paved road from the main entrance. Follow the main road to the top where the summit road goes left and the road to the alpine ski area goes straight and downhill. The road leading up to the Selkirk Lodge and the ski trails is to the right, at the back of the large overflow parking lot.
Without volunteers, races simply cannot happen! If you would like to volunteer please contact the Race Director.
We have multiple ways to help.
1. Earn money for your high school cross country team:
Bring a minimum of 7 volunteers from your team and Trail Maniacs will donate cash to your team. Contact the Race Director for more information.
2. Volunteer at an earlier race >> You get a FREE entry for any Trail Maniacs race of your choosing.
Some of the volunteer roles that are available at each race:
Course marshal – help direct athletes on the course
Post race meal
3. Volunteer for Washington Trail Association, Idaho Trail Association, Evergreen East or Lake City Trail Alliance. All you need to do is have your volunteer hours documented and signed off by the trail organization you worked with and send it to us. Its simple: 1 hour worked is worth $10 off your race entry. 2 hours worked worth $20 off your race entry, etc. Please note that in order to volunteer for Lake City Trail Alliance you do need to be a member (this is due to their insurance purposes.)
