Major June 6 trail run canceled due to pandemic

The 2017 Red Devil Trail Run near Cashmere. This year's run has been canceled due to the coronavirus emergency.

CASHMERE — One of the Wenatchee Valley’s most challenging backcountry foot races is off due to coronavirus.

RunWenatchee director Joel Rhyner says the Red Devil Trail Run, scheduled for June 6th, has to be canceled for public health reasons. Gov. Jay Inslee has mandated no large gatherings during the pandemic, and the run on National Forest trails near Cashmere draws scores of participants each year, in races of up to 50 kilometers.

Runners who’ve already signed up may ask for a refund, or roll over their participation until the 2021 race. For either option, email
