Welcome to the inaugural year of the Tapteal Greenway 50K! You have the choice of running or paddling our 50K event. Both the running event and the paddle events are approximately 29+ miles long each. The foot race parallels the Yakima river and is run on the Tapteal Greenway trail while the paddle race is ON the Yakima river (the "Tapteal water trail"). Our event starts in Benton City at the boat launch and the finish is at Bateman Island in Richland. Sections of the Tapteal trail run are on dirt and have beautiful views of the river, while others portions are on pavement. The paddle event runs downstream on the beautiful Yakima river itself. There will be aid stations with tasty snacks and water & electrolyte to help you on your journey. Every runner & paddler will be responsible for arranging her/his own ride back to their car at the start. Why not drop a car at the finish and carpool with someone to the start to make it easier? All proceeds from our event will be donated to the Tapteal Greenway. You can learn more about them at https://tapteal.org/
