Just a head’s up: this race is not to be confused with the USRA-sponsored Tri Cities Half Marathon happening in April.
Richland Run Fest
The Richland Run Fest is a running event comprised of a full marathon, a half marathon, and a 5k run. This is scheduled for February 22 at the Red Lion in Richland Wa. Packet pick-up, as well as pre-race and post-race activities will all take place there.
If you’re from outside the Tri Cities, we’re happy to inform you that the Red Lion will be providing rooms at a discounted rate of $89.00, but you need to mention explicitly that you are part of or running at the Richland Run Fest. Otherwise, you will not be given the discounted rate. You may reserve a room by February 21st by calling 1-800-RED-LION.
A Full Marathon, a Half Marathon and a 5K Run
The marathon and half marathon starts at 9:00AM while the 5k run starts at 9:15AM. All races will be chip timed and will start and finish by the Fingernail in Richland’s Howard Amon Park. The award ceremony for each race will start as soon as that race results are tabulated. The 5K's award ceremony will be held around 10AM. The Half Marathon's award ceremony will be at about noon. The full Marathon's award ceremony will be at about 2:40PM.
Incidentally, you’ll be running in music-friendly courses. So you can run to the beat of the music from your iPod.
The entry fee for the marathon is $80, $50 for the half marathon, and $25 for the 5k run. A technical race shirt is already included in the entrance fee. Online registration is available until Saturday, February 15th, at 11PM. You may contact Ron Hayden at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the event.
