WENATCHEE — Cascade Autocenter/Subaru will serve as the title sponsor of two of RunWenatchee’s main programs and events in 2020 — Weekly Run Club and the three-race Wenatchee Valley Trail Run Series, the two organizations announced today.

In addition to the title sponsorships, Cascade Autocenter/Subaru will serve as presenting sponsor of this year’s Trails In Motion Film Festival and as supporting sponsor of the River Run on the Fourth and Turkey on the Run road races.

“Cascade Autocenter is always looking for ways we can encourage people in the community to get healthier and get outside,” says Will Summers, the Wenatchee dealership’s marketing director. “We have quite a few employees who participate in RunWenatchee’s weekly runs and events so it feels natural for us to partner up. We’re glad to support an organization that promotes a fun way to get healthier, be outside, and make connections.”

“RunWenatchee is very happy to partner with Cascade Autocenter/Subaru,” said Joel Rhyner, co-founder of RunWenatchee. “Having the backing of Cascade Autocenter/Subaru provides credibility and validation as we work to improve the health and fitness of residents and visitors alike.”

The Wenatchee Valley Trail Running Series begins with the Horse Lake Trail Runs in the Wenatchee Foothills on May 9, followed by the Red Devil Trail Runs near Cashmere on June 6, and the Oktoberfest Trail Runs at Leavenworth Ski Hill on Oct. 17.

Weekly Run Club is held from 4 to 6 p.m. each Thursday, with the exception of holidays, on the Apple Capital Loop Trail, with check-in held inside Pybus Public Market. This activity is free and is not a race. People simply check in anytime during the two-hour period and run or walk a 5-kilome­ter distance at their own pace. Since 2013, more than 360 Run Clubs have been held by RunWenatchee.

The Trails In Motion Film Festival makes its annual stop in Wenatchee on March 26 at Pybus Public Market. The film event is a collection of short trail running and ultra-running films shot around the world.

River Run on the Fourth 5K and 10K will be held on July 4 on the Apple Capital Loop Trail from Pybus Market and Turkey on the Run 5K, 12K and Kids Race will be held Nov. 26 on the Apple Capital Loop Trail from Walla Walla Point Park.

Cascade Autocenter is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Cascade Autocenter opened in 1980 and began selling Subaru in 1999. The dealership believes strongly in giving back to the community. For more:
