Bringing it all together
  • Trail Running
  • Fishing
  • Breweries

Growing out of the Flyathlon, a multi-sport event that integrates three activities that are surging in popularity; trail running, fly fishing, and craft beer, TroutX seeks to provide a resource that makes it easy to find places where you can bring these three activities together. While many enjoy these activities independently, we have found over the years that putting them together is even more enjoyable.

Our Mission

Our mission is to facilitate the connection of people with healthy freshwater ecosystems through novel recreational events, educational activities and on-the-ground projects.

Our Approach

At Running Rivers, we firmly believe that the best way to ensure the preservation, protection, and maintenance of our irreplaceable public lands and waters is to develop and foster the stewards who will stand up in their defense. Our programs create unique opportunities for people to experience public lands and waters in novel and fun ways, to expand their depth of understanding of the importance of healthy functioning freshwater ecosystems, and to invest in their time, money, and sweat through on-the-ground stewardship projects.
