Yakima River Canyon Marathon & Half-Marathon
April 4, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
A marathon that you really should consider for the whole weekend’s experience is the Yakima River Canyon. It simply beats any other marathon experience PERIOD. At the end of the carbo-loading dinner the night before, everyone knows everyone. Getting on the buses and on the beautiful course the next morning it’s old home week with new friends. At the afternoon baked potato salad bar awards dinner, it is simply a hoot.
If not ready for a marathon, who cares? There are many, many slow runners and walkers and they are as well embraced, perhaps more so, than the front runners.
You’ll rub elbows with many wide-eyed first-timers and many knurl veterans that will astound middle of the packers, back of the packers, all equal at the end of the day.
Well, that’s my take, other locals and those who travel across the country each year and don’t need another WA State to feel the same. COOL!
