Registration opens December 5th
Come join us for the inaugural running of the Run the River Marathon and Relay, starting at Columbia Park in Kennewick, WA. This road race features a scenic course that travels through the towns of Kennewick, Richland, and Pasco all while staying next to the mighty Columbia River.
This classic road marathon follows paved paths and roadways the entire time and offers participants with great views of 3 beautifully landscaped parks, the meandering Columbia River, as well as the rugged surrounding mountains. The flat course and cool spring weather will provide runners with a prime opportunity for a fast finish time if that is their goal. Likewise, the course lends itself well to runners of all abilities as well as walkers... which tend to have the best time out there!
The race will be chip timed and we are working to certify the course through USATF so you can use this as an official qualifying race. Please check with us as it gets closer to verify the course was certified.
For those that aren't wanting the full marathon distance - gather up some friends and do one of the 2 or 4 person relay options. Segment distances vary between 4 and 13.1 miles so you can build an optimal team.
This race is being put on by a group of local runners and is not affiliated with a particular club, group, or company. They are donating their time to give participants a great experience and any profits from this race will go back into it to make next year's even better!
As with most other races, registration fees are non-refundable so if you signed up by mistake, something better came along, or you got the sniffles, please don't ask for a refund - just consider it a donation. Sorry, but we need to be firm on this one.
