Yakima River Canyon Marathon and Half-Marathon
Sat April 1
Point-to-point course winds alongside the Yakima River as it meanders through the soaring cliffs of its namesake canyon. Marathon starts just south of Ellensburg and covers about five miles of farmland before taking runners into the canyon. The half-marathon starts midway through the canyon, and both races share the same finish line. Marathon starts at 8 a.m. with an early start at 6 a.m. Half-marathon starts at 9:30. Buses take runners from race HQ in Selah to the starts.
