Jewel Of The Valley 5K / 10K / Half / Marathon
Sat May 11, 2024
Enjoy an untapped jewel of Washington. Let us introduce you to the Yakima Greenway, where you can let the legs fly on a FLAT, smooth & paved trail. You get to admire the valley full of wineries, crops, and the undulating terrain unique to Yakima. Come for the run, stay for the festivities. Sarg park has ample parking with a beautiful venue for us to host wine, beer, food and music while you hang with your friends and family. Bask in the sunny side of WA, also known as the Palm Springs of WA for the many days of bright sunshine.
All courses will be out and back run on the Yakima Greenway Trail. This is a paved, non-motorized trail which runs along the Yakima and Naches Rivers, featuring views of rolling hills, vineyards and orchards. All races, with the exception of the half marathon head north and east on the trail before turning around and heading back to the start. The half marathon will head south for about 1.25 miles before turning around and then heading north and east before heading back to the start/finish. The trail is flat and fast, the marathon having around 500’ of gain/loss, the half having about 275’ of gain/loss and the 10K and 5K having less than 100’ of gain loss! This is a perfect race to attempt a speedy PR!
