The 2nd annual race in Selah had huge growth from its first year. The event featured 548 runners from all around the Pacific Northwest, and several Japanese military runners. The Yakima Training Center provided a tank for display and pictures. Vendors were on hand selling goods and promoting their product and services. Thank you to Brooks Running, Advocare, Selah Fitness Express and Selah Physical Therapy for being part of this event. Also a huge thank you to our sponsors for providing much needed support of this event. Les Schwab, Pingrey Ford, Pepsi and Extreme Photography, without you this would not have been possible.
