Gran Fondo of Yakima Valley

Bron Yr Aur Brewing Co.
12160 US Highway 12
Naches, WA 98937

9 am - Come join us for the second annual Gran Fondo of Yakima Valley and bask in the spring beauty of Central Washington. With over 5,500 feet of climbing over basalt ridges of the Yakima River Canyon one is afforded over 80 miles of high desert splendor punctuated by 21 miles of gravel nirvana. Bring plenty of grit and you will be rewarded with epic views of the dual spectacles of Mt Adams and Mt Rainier as well as the stunning scenery of the Yakima River Canyon. The ride will be well marked and supported with 2 aid stations stocked with food and hydration. If you have always wanted to tackle a Gran Fondo but been a bit intimidated by too much gravel this is the Fondo for you. If you are an experienced Fondo rider the terrain and distance will provide plenty of challenges. Event starting line will be at Bron Yr Aur Brewing Company!  .
Never Say Never Half Marathon

Tieton, WA

This is a race designed for everyone from first timers to seasoned half marathoners. It is a picturesque course with some rolling hills. We have reversed the course from last year so the 'big hill' is at mile 2. Once you reach the top be sure to take a moment to look to your left at the beautiful view of the countryside. 

There will be six water stations, four potty-stops, and lots of fans cheering you on along the way.

We are again partnering with BOX, a nonprofit organization founded by women, dedicated to building connections that support women and girls. This year their focus will be on providing hygiene products and clothing needed for the girls and women at Rod’s House. If you are not familiar with the wonderful things happening at Rod's House please check them out: www.rodshouse.com. In 2021 we donated $4,100 to the Highland School District, in 2022 we donated $2,000 plus products to Davis High School and this year our goal is to raise $5,000! We hope you can help us help the girls and women at Rod's House.
