Registration will open November 15, 2022 for the 2023 Snake River Canyon Half Marathon held March 4, 2023 at 10:00 a.m.! The Snake River Canyon Half Marathon is directed by the Palouse Road Runners on the first Saturday in March every year. It is the first big race of the season for the Quad Cities area. SRCHM is a beautiful river canyon out-and-back course on the Wawawai River Road along the Snake River. The flat and paved course is USATF-certified. The start and finish are at Wawawai Landing at a river elevation of about 720 feet. Weather in the canyon is quite warm for March with finish-line temperatures close to 50F. Go to palouseroadrunners.org for more information.
Runners will start at Wawawai Landing on the Snake River. They will follow Wawawai River Road on an out-and-back course where they will turn around near Water Canyon. There will be mile markers every mile and water stations are about every 2 miles. Toilets will be available at all water stations. This is a USATF Certified Course.
It is Palouse Road Runners’ and the RRCA’s policy that bib swapping is not allowed. This is for liability and safety reasons and it's just not cool.
Local time: 1:20 AM
