Registration now open for virtual White-tail run

The 2021 Great White-tail Run will be a virtual, anywhere goes event held May 15-22.

This is a virtual walk or run 2 mile, 5K, or 10K event to raise money for Wahkiakum 4-H.

Participants can complete their run/walk May 15--22. All registered participants will receive a runner's head buff in the mail. Organizers encourage canine participants with their owners and they urge participants to take canine family members with them on their run/walk.

This race is traditionally held in Skamokawa around the Julia Butler Hansen National Wildlife Refuge, which is home to the Columbia White-tail deer. The JBH National Wildlife Refuge, in addition to protecting endangered deer, is also a wintering area for waterfowl on the Pacific flyway.

This race is sponsored by Wahkiakum 4-H Leaders Council. The Washington State University 4-H Youth Development Program is a county-based program with educational support from the university. Youth age kindergarten through 19 years are involved in learning life skills through working in project areas with adult volunteer leaders. 4-H encourages responsibility, decision-making, record keeping, and teamwork. This event is a fundraiser for the Wahkiakum County based 4-H program and all proceeds will be used to benefit the county program.
