THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED As a race director, nothing makes me more sad than sharing this news. I wanted to wait until two weeks before race day to make the final call, but there's no way we can still host the race. Benton county is still in phase 1 and per the governor's mandates and Benton county health dept., we're not allowed to have any outdoor gatherings of any size.
I was hoping by now we'd be able to have the race, even if it meant starting the runners in groups of 5, but it just won't work this year.
I hope you can join us next year. Thank you for supporting us, Jason
About the event
We have our collective fingers crossed that we will be able to host this FUN race this year. However because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the Governor's mandates, we "may" be forced to cancel. If you sign up (or are signed up) and we do have to cancel, we will make every accommodation to either roll you over to another race or to next year, or to offer partial refunds. More info will be shared as race day draws nearer. Thank you for understanding.
Local time: 5:19 AM
The Nomad Trail Runners of Eastern Washington are hosting the 5th annual Jump-off-Joe marathon and half-marathon! This inexpensive, low key event is run entirely on gravel roads on and around Jump off Joe Mountain near Kennewick, WA. This fun event is geared more closely to a trail run than a typical flat road marathon. The aid stations are about 5 miles apart and not every 2 miles like in a typical road race. Please come prepared with means of carrying water as you may be travelling up to an hour between aid stations.
The 2020 installment will once again be a fundraiser for the Tri-Cities Pet Over-Population Prevention (POPP)! Prior to the race start, we will be accepting donations for POPP at the registration table come race morning. http://www.popptricities.org/ We hope to see you at the races!
