Never Say Never From Above!


120 Noye Road
Tieton, WA US 98947


This race is all about YOU! Every decision we make has YOU in mind. This is a race designed for everyone from first timers to seasoned racers. It is a picturesque course with some rolling hills. 

There will be SEVEN water stations this year. We heard the feedback and have added one more at the corner of Dilley and Noye! There are six bathroom opportunities, and lots of fans cheering you on along the way. 

We are again partnering with BOX, a nonprofit organization founded by women, dedicated to building connections that support women and girls. In 2021 we donated $4,100 to the Highland School District, in 2022 we donated $2,000 plus products to Davis High School. On May 9th we presented a $3,000 check to Rod’s House plus a ton of period products. We are excited to announce this year we will be raising money to support women and children at The Children's Village. The Children's Village helps children with special health and developmental needs and their families. This comprehensive, family-centered organization aims to meet each child's need for individualized care. We hope this year we will be able to make our biggest donation yet! 

Let’s talk about SWAG! 2023 our prediction of giving away sweatshirts was spot on…we were blessed with a HOT day! Now we're faced with the decision to go with sweatshirts again or be brave and do tank tops?!?! Either way you will also get a drink coupon for an adult beverage or a non-alcoholic beverage, a medal, a fun bag and so much more!

And if you LOVE your sweatshirt as much as we love ours please reach out. We have lots for sell! $25 or a donation. 

Flying pig trophies will be back again for first, second, and third place women and men runners and walkers.

If 13.1 miles sounds too far for your body we have added at 10k course! Now you have NO excuses! 

However, even if a 10K sounds worse than a hole in your head come for the Finish Line Celebration Party! This is FREE to attend and welcome to all! The fabulous Genevieve Duo will be on stage providing awesome music, we'll have food trucks, desserts, and locally-made beverages! We will have games and face painting for the kids! It’s a family fun, all-are-welcome community event you don’t want to miss! 

Refer 5 Friends!

Running with friends is fun, saving $20 and running with friends is even more fun! 

After you finish your registration you will get a special code to share with your friends, family, and even strangers, if you're one of those people who like to chat it up with people you don't know!!! When 5 people sign up with your code you will automatically get a $20.00 refund! And for those of you who know lots of people-5 more people using your code will get you another $20.00 refund! 

Participant Feedback

Not much I would change, maybe you could get Dean to plant a shade tree or two for the after party 😎….. Honestly if I were you guys I wouldn’t change a thing, it was a great event! Thanks Eric 2023

I actually do not have anything I would ask be changed on this race! Registration was easy, course directions were well marked, volunteers amazing/number of water stations great, the swag bag amazing and the finish line activity were wonderful! We can't wait to join you again and will get the word out THIS is the Race to add to every ones list!! WELL DONE ALL!!!! -Lori M. 2023

This was my 13th half marathon and was the most unique half I have completed. I loved the drawing on your bib number was a fun creative way to get the run started. I loved the pig trophies and the fact the award ceremony was not too long of a wait. The amount of water stations was great and needed for the hot day. Overall this was a great race and well put together. -Jennifer N. 2023


To be honest this was one of the best organized races I have done.  The emails prior to the race were extremely detailed, the signage on the course was fantastic, the volunteers were great and the after party was awesome.  My son and wife really enjoyed the scavenger hunt to explore the property. They both want to return and they didn’t even run. The raffle was also a great idea. The only thing that could have been better was the weather. This was a fantastic event and I will be back. -Scott K. 2022

You all did a great job! I never did a marathon or ½ marathon before so I have nothing to compare it to, but I am a picky and well organized person and I’d give you guys an A+. Dawn W. 2022

I loved the race! My friend and I walked the whole thing. I’ve been to a lot of these and yours was both well organized and fun. There were so many people that cheered for us!  We stayed for tacos, beer, and music. I love the shirt too. -Laura T. 2022

I think the volunteers were great especially the three girls with Snickers.  The course was beautiful.  I was pleased by the quality of the shirts.  I usually don’t keep them as a rule. -Jacqui B. 2022

For starters, this is one of the most organized races I’ve been on, especially for a first time. You guys did absolutely incredible work. -Heather J. 2022
