Located on the east side of town near Walla Walla Community College, runners and walkers will be treated to views of the Blue Mountains with rolling fields of wheat and grapevines and fall foliage. The trail surfaces start with asphalt nature paths. Once the run route reaches Bennington Lake, runners will run on gravel service roads. The half marathon will include a section of out and back on a chip sealed county road returning to loop back onto the last half of the 10k route. The race meanders through open grasslands and wooded areas with stunning views of the surrounding valley.
This is NOT a fast and flat course! It includes rolling hills with elevation gain on the way out and high speed returns on mile 6-8 of the half and the last two miles of both the 10k and half marathon.
What to Expect: Food trucks, local craft beers (one free beer per runner & one free hot chocolate or root beer for those under 21) music, and food tent for runners, awards ceremonies, swag from sponsors, and lots of cheering!
Everyone knows that half the reason you run these crazy races is for the shirt, swag and finisher’s medal and the Falla Walla event will not disappoint. Every finisher receives a finisher medal.
No refunds and no deferrals.
