Yakima, WA



Sunday, July 24, 2011

Event Details

Part of a series of half marathon race events scheduled throughout the United States in smaller to medium-sized towns and cities -- a series that also includes races in Columbia, S.C.; Council Bluff, Ia.; and Dade City, Fla., to name a few -- the Yakima Half Marathon, 5K & Fun Run is one of nearly 30 races organized by the USRA Half Marathon Series.

The race is expected to take runners on a course that winds through the city streets of the Yakima Valley, a wine growing region in southern Washington state that's known for its plentiful vineyards as well as its nearby mountains and rivers for outdoor recreation.

Located in central southern Washington State, just over 140 miles southeast of Seattle, Yakima typically sees its warmest and driest weather of the year in July, when average monthly temperatures range between 87°F and 51°F and rainfall totals average just over 0.2 inches for the month. On the day of the race (July 24), the average high is 88°F and the average low is 52°F.
