Seven Rivers Challenge

Stickers started to be distributed

- Kanako Iwata-Eng, 7RC Cheerleader


We launched the Seven Rivers Challenge in April to encourage our members to run the seven rivers that are less frequently run by our members – Nisqually, Nooksack, Sauk, Sol Duc, Stillaguamish, Wenatchee and White Salmon.  WKC members who registered online and ran any the river were to receive beautiful stickers, but it took a while before we could finalize the designs and print stickers.  Finally in late October, I distributed to all who had participated in the 7RC-eligible trips.  I encourage all members to complete all seven rivers and receive the Big 7 sticker.  At this moment, I don’t see any more 7RC-eligible trips.  If you are a trip leader, consider leading trips to these rivers.  All of them have multiple sections including Class 2 or 2+.  If you are interested in leading a trip but don’t know how, please come to the Trip Planning Party on Saturday, Jan 28, 2017 (the details will be coming) or contact our new Whitewater Trip Chair, Josh Wiseman or me


Seven Rivers Challenge Program Outline:

  • The seven designated rivers are the Nisqually, Nooksack, Sauk, Sol Duc, Stillaguamish, Wenatchee, and White Salmon.
  • No end date is set at this time.
  • You can run any section of these rivers in any order. 
  • The trip must be a WKC trip posted in the WKC calendar. 
  • You must be a WKC member and register to the trip online.
  • When a member registers online and participates in a club trip to a designated river, he/she receives a sticker (One per person per river). 
  • When a member completes all 7 rivers, he/she receives the Big 7 sticker.
