The ONE-MILE DISTANCE is a RACE FOR EVERYONE – of ANY AGE & ABILITIES.
The Yakima Mile is composed of 11-heats (races within the event starting at different times) ranging from the non-competitive Family Mile to the Elite Mile, where we may very well see history be made in 2023......every year, for our three iterations, the Yakima Mile has clocked the Men's or Women's Fastest Mile ever run in Washington!
Sam Prakel - 3:50.5 (2022) | Nikki Hiltz - 4:21.5 (2021)
Regardless of if you walk or run for fun, or you have your eyes set on some cash prizes, we hope you'll join us in celebrating community, supporting the YWCA Yakima, and having a once-a-year type of night at the Yakima Mile!
YAKIMA MILE | 07.01.23 | 6:00-8:30 PM
2023 MILES AGAINST VIOLENCE PLEDGE RUN
run by Megan Johnson in support of YWCA Yakima
Megan began the Miles Against Violence Pledge run at the same time as the first heat–the Family Mile–of the Yakima Mile at 6:00 PM. Then, she ran laps up and down the mile stretch of Yakima Ave. until the end of the races, about two hours later. Individuals and businesses are invited to pledge dollar amounts for every mile Megan ran for the 2023 Yakima Mile, to continue supporting YWCA Yakima.
You make a donation or pledge through July 8th.
Yakima Mile is proud to partner with Bring Back The Mile on its mission to elevate and celebrate The Mile. For more information on BBTM and upcoming runs across the United States, visit the BBTM website.
