The race course for all 3 distances runs along the Columbia River on paved trails. The views along this course are amazing. While I haven’t participated in the River Run, I have run these trails on my own and at other events. It is one of my favorite places to run, and I hope to be able to make it for this event either this year or in the near future. It is sure to be an awesome run with views of the river, the Cascade mountains, and the surrounding foothills. The course is a combination of flat sections, rollers, and a few hills. So, don’t forget to get your hill training in!
Afterwards, runners can enjoy the Taste of the Harvest Festival and check out Pybus Market, as well. Both are sure to have some of Wenatchee’s famous local apples. So don’t forget to pick some up. There is nothing better than a fresh off the tree apple from the Apple Capital of the World.
