Run Your Fastest Mile...EVER!
What is the Downtown Yakima Mile?
The Downtown Yakima Mile is a one-mile race that opens a beautiful 14-block gradual downhill stretch of Yakima Avenue to runners of all ages and abilities who “want to run their fastest mile…..EVER”.
We will be running 10 heats of mile races back to back from elite athletes to tiny tots. The Downtown Yakima Mile will feature more than $25,000 in prizes for athletes, attracting top level competitors from all over the west coast.
On behalf of our Strategic Planning Committee, we would like to invite EVERYONE to run, jog, or walk the Downtown Yakima Mile. With 10 heats it is our sincere hope that you find a race that suits you or better yet challenges you. We welcome people of all ages, cultures, genders, and abilities. We truly want members of the whole community to join us!
Ultimately, whether you are a participant or spectator you are expressing your commitment to fostering a healthy community where everyone feels inspired and welcomed, with a little healthy competition mixed in!
