Chuckanut 50k…a race near & dear to our hearts!

March 18, 2016
Chuckanut 50k

Since 2010, Flora has been a proud sponsor of the Chuckanut 50k…a race that has been around for 23 years. In 2000, Flora Ambassador, Krissy Moehl, participated in the Chuckanut 50k…running her first ultra. There is something about that first ultra that holds a special pace in one’s heart…so when race founders, Doug McKeever and Richard West “retired”, Krissy wanted to ensure that this special race continued and has been coordinating it ever since with the help of many volunteers.

Please join us on race day, Saturday, March 19th, as we cheer on the many runners including a few of our very own ambassadors including Sage Canaday and Ellie Greenwood. Flora’s Marketing Team will be at the finish line so please say “hello” and pick up some of our great products.
