This weekend marks the beginning of the trail running season here in the valley, with Methow Endurance's Rattler Trail Runs. The run highlights the beautiful Pipestone canyon, at the best time of year: snow-capped mountain views, wild flowers, the smell of sage, sun, and a mix of fun, technical trails and smooth, fast doubletrack. Because it's early season, there are several distances to choose from: four-mile, nine-mile, and half-marathon.
To celebrate the start of spring running, we're going to be at the finish area offering free 15-minute sports massage sessions to speed your recovery. These quick treatments reduce inflammation, increase range of motion, and prevent cramping (in addition to feeling really good), allowing you to spend less time stiff and sore and more time out on the trails.
In addition, if you're running the race this weekend, you can get 15% off an hour massage in our Winthrop office, either this week or next. Book online or call the office at 509-996-3222. Your legs will thank you!
