About The Snake River Canyon Half Marathon
The Snake River Canyon Half Marathon is an exciting and scenic race that takes place in Wawawai Landing, Washington on 4 March 2023. This event offers a challenging course that takes runners through the picturesque Snake River Canyon, which provides some stunning views of the Columbia Plateau. The route starts at Wawawai Landing and then heads north along the river, before turning south further into the canyon.
The scenery throughout this half marathon is spectacular; with towering basalt cliffs around every corner, it’s hard not to be impressed by the beauty of this region. You’ll also pass by several waterfalls and small streams as you make your way along the course, giving you plenty of chances to take a break and appreciate nature while running.
March can still be cold in Washington, but temperatures are usually mild enough for a comfortable run – expect highs between 40 – 50°F (4-10°C) on race day. Depending on conditions there may also be some snow or rain during this time of year so it pays to come prepared with layers or weather-proof gear if needed!
You won’t have to worry about large crowds since this race is relatively small compared to other half marathons – last year’s edition only had about 300 participants which means fewer people out on course vying for space or resources! Of course there will still be plenty of support from volunteers who work tirelessly at each checkpoint and throughout various sections of the route providing much appreciated water refills whenever needed too.
This half marathon has something special going for it – all proceeds from entry fees go towards supporting local charities so participants can feel good knowing they’re making a difference while having fun at same time! Whether you’re looking for an exciting challenge or just want to enjoy some beautiful scenery along one Washington’s most iconic routes, then look no further than Snake River Canyon Half Marathon – see you there next March!
