Run Super Experience

Course Descriptions & Maps

Description: 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!

All distances are USATF certified, also making the marathon eligible to be run as a Boston Marathon Qualifying Race as well as London and other qualifiers



the marathon is a double out and back and a Boston Qualifier

Trash on the Course-just NO!:

Please hold onto your trash and discard it properly at an aid station. It is NOT acceptable to leave trash anywhere on the course. It is NOT acceptable to leave trash near course markings thinking we will pick it up for you. Trash left near trail markings can blow away and end up somewhere where it doesn’t belong.
