Yakima Skyline 25K

The Yakima Skyline 25K takes place outside of Ellensburg, WA in and above the scenic Yakima River Canyon on lands that were part of the ancestral home of the Yakama people and associated tribes and bands. On the eastern and sunny side of the Cascade mountains, this out-and-back course is located in a beautiful high desert, rainshadow region of the area. The race is exposed to the elements and is often hot and dry! And with nearly 5,000 feet of elevation gain, it is a tough 25K! Expect stunning views of the canyon and the Yakima River below as well as views of Tahoma (Mt Rainier), Pahto (Mt Adams) and the Cascades off in the distance. There are quad-burning climbs, screaming downhills, and rolling ridgelines along fields of wildflowers. You will finish along the Yakima River in a canyon of lush springtime foliage and you will be met with a one-of-a-kind finish line party and free on-site primitive camping!
