The fourteenth annual Tribute to the Trails calendar shares the amazing trail running photography of Glenn Tachiyama, with all proceeds going to WTA.

Trail runners rejoice! Your favorite calendar is back for its fourteenth year of spreading the love of trails and trail running around the Pacific Northwest.

Tribute to the Trails Cover 2019

Tribute to the Trails 2019 is a wall calendar made for trail runners and anyone else who appreciates the Pacific Northwest’s natural beauty and scenic trails. With inspiring outdoor images, paired with useful trail running information (such as race dates and trail running events), this calendar creates a visual masterpiece that not only looks great on your office cubicle or home wall, but also helps to sustain those trails found inside.


The joint project between prominent race photographer Glenn Tachiyama and former WTA board member Wendy Wheeler Jacobs started as a fundraiser for WTA fourteen years ago. Being both trail runners, both wanted to find a way to help the trail running community give back to the trails they run on. Tribute to the Trails was the answer.

Glenn and Wendy take pride that their project is entirely volunteer-based, which means 100 percent of the proceeds from sales are donated to WTA. Its success is dependent on amazing community support. Sponsors and contributors donate funds to underwrite the printing and shipping costs, while running stores and race organizations volunteer their time to sell the calendars and race directors donate race entries for a drawing that helps generate more sales.

Over the past thirteen years, the calendar has raised nearly $250,000 to sustain WTA’s efforts to ensure there are trails for everyone, forever. We cannot wait to see what the calendar brings this year!
