Registration will open December 15, 2020 for the 2021 Snake River Canyon Half Marathon being held March 6, 2021 at 9AM! The Snake River Half Marathon is directed by the Palouse Road Runners on the first Saturday in March every year. It is the first big race of the season for the Quad Cities area. SRCHM is a beautiful river canyon out-and-back course on the Wawawai River Road along the Snake River. The flat and paved course is USATF certified. The start and finish are at Wawawai Landing at a river elevation of about 720 feet. Weather in the canyon is quite warm for March with finish line temperatures close to 50F. Go to palouseroadrunners.org for more information.
Runners will start at Wawawai Landing on the Snake River. They will follow Wawawai River Road on a out-and-back course where they will turn around near Water Canyon. There will be mile markers every mile and water stations are about every 2 miles. Toilets will be available at the first two and last two water stations. This is a USATF Certified Course.
It is Palouse Road Runners’ and the RRCA’s policy that bib swapping is not allowed. This is for liability and safety reasons and its just not cool.
Sorry, no refunds. In the unfortunate event that we are not able to hold the race in person, we will be doing a virtual race instead.
Running with pets and strollers or biking along the course during a race are also not allowed. The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged. You must follow the health and safety guidelines listed below to participate.

Participants will wear face coverings at all times when not actively racing.
Participants in the race staging area and start area must maintain at least six feet of distance from all other people and wear face coverings until their race begins. All other participants not in the scheduled corral must wait in their vehicles or away from the course until their start time approaches.
Participants on the race course must make an effort to remain 6 feet from other participants on the course as much as possible.
