“I am excited to return to Mukilteo, Washington, for our 2023 Conference,” comments USTRC Event Director, Terry Chiplin. “Snohomish County Sports Commission exceeded my expectations at every step of the way of production of the 2022 US Trail Running Conference. From the initial connection, the excellent response to our RFP that they had clearly read, connecting me with potential sponsors and partners, to the final day of the event, Tammy, Nathan, and the team have been professional, courteous, and extremely helpful. The location provided us with an amazing facility for our Conference, infrastructure to support everything we needed, and also excellent trails on which to enjoy some well-deserved forest bathing!”

It is exciting to showcase trail running in the Pacific Northwest! To host the US Trail Running Conference for a second year in a row is a huge win for us,” states Tammy Dunn, Executive Director of the Snohomish County Sports Commission. “Snohomish County and the Pacific Northwest has great trails for people to hike on and run on.”
