Team OTM Challenge

Out There Monthly
is excited to launch our second season of the Team OTM Challenge, a 6-month program of trail and road runs, bike rides and races, triathlons and other multi-sport events that will remind you why living in the Inland Northwest is way up there on your “Things I’m Thankful For” list.



The Challenge: 6 Months, 6 Events

This program challenges you to complete at least one participating race each month from May through October. OTM is working with race directors of more than 45 events in 2017 to bring Team OTM Challenge participants a diverse selection of races, both on dirt and on pavement. You’ll receive generous registration discounts of up to 30% off each event (which means you can easily make back your program registration fee).

The Focus

PRs, podium finishes, and high mileage are a fun part of training and racing. However, the sole emphasis of the Team OTM Challenge is participation. We want to encourage and celebrate you for simply showing up. So try a new race in a new region with new friends, and you’ll agree that participation is its own reward.

Participate as an Individual or 4-Person Team

Don’t want to sign up by yourself? Then sign up on a 4-person team. Our team option allows you to gather some friends, co-workers, or family members and challenge each other as well as other teams in the program. You’ll all get a big price break on registration.

Kick-off Party

To start off the Team OTM Challenge season, we’ll get together at No-Li to learn more about the program and participating races and events, meet other participants, pick up t-shirts and swag bags, and enjoy a free No-Li beer. Thank you to our Team OTM brewery sponsor No-Li Brewhouse.


What You Get

  • Registration discounts to dozens of races
  • Opportunities to try many events and disciplines in new places
  • A chance to challenge yourself to be more active
  • Team camaraderie
  • Free beer at several Team OTM gatherings and training runs
  • A gender-specific team tech shirt
  • Swag bag full of goodies
  • Cool prizes from program sponsors

Participating Events

You’ll get access to ALL of these race discounts, so you can do as many as you like. (But we encourage you to challenge yourself to do at least six.) The 2017 list is being confirmed now, but take a look below at what race and event discounts were offered to Team OTM Challenge participants in 2016.







Age Requirements: We welcome participants of all ages to the Team OTM Challenge program. However, race directors determine the age requirements for their own events. Participants younger than 18 years old should check the age requirements for the specific races and events that interest them.


Registration is closed for our inaugural 2016 season. Please return here later this winter for information about the 2017 program. Questions? We’d love to hear from you.
