About This Activity

During your run, you will be running on the beautiful Apple Capital Loop Trail, yards away from the flowing Columbia River.  This is a paved trail offering views of both the river, the beautiful hillsides of the Wenatchee Foothills and the North Cascade Mountain Range.

All proceeds from this race will go towards the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life with funds providing cancer research and patient service programs.

Event schedule and times


Start and Finish Lines: The race will start and finish in the same location, on the lawn between the Riverfront Center Building and the Wenatchee Riverfront Railway.

All three courses head North.  The 1-Mile turn around is just before Linden Tree Park and the Boathouse.  The 5K turn around is just North of Walla Walla Park at the nature preserve.  The 10K race takes you over the pedistrian bridge into Confluence Park and back.

Course Notes: The Apple Capital Loop Trail is open to walkers, runners, and bikers.  Please be aware of pedestrians of all sizes on all modes of transportation.  Your trip will be safer and more enjoyable if you follow the trail etiquette rules.  http://chelanpud.org/trail-etiquette.html
