If you enjoy long-distance running, riding a horse and competing against others who enjoy the same, there's a special race just for you called Ride & Tie.

The sport combines trail running, endurance riding and strategy as teams of two people and a horse compete against other trios.

Ride & Tie races have been held for 40 years, but rarely in Washington. And the championship race, scheduled June 19 at Trout Lake at Mount Adams, has never been held in this state.

Two Ride & Tie races are scheduled for Eastern Washington prior to the championship. The first will be held Saturday in Sunrise Canyon, outside Kennewick, and will go either 11 or 22 miles. The second, a 25-miler, will be May 15 at Trout Lake at Mount Adams.
