Never Say Never From Above!


120 Noye Road
Tieton, WA US 98947


This race is all about YOU! Every decision we make has YOU in mind. This is a race designed for everyone from first timers to seasoned racers. It is a picturesque course with some rolling hills. 

There will be SEVEN water stations this year. We heard the feedback and have added one more at the corner of Dilley and Noye! There are six bathroom opportunities, 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. In 2021 we donated $4,100 to the Highland School District, in 2022 we donated $2,000 plus products to Davis High School. On May 9th we presented a $3,000 check to Rod’s House plus a ton of period products. We are excited to announce this year we will be raising money to support women and children at Children's Village. Children's Village helps children with special health and developmental needs and their families. This comprehensive, family-centered organization aims to meet each child's need for individualized care. We hope this year we will be able to make our biggest donation yet! 

Let’s talk about SWAG! Since we've done a long-sleeve shirt and a sweatshirt, this year we are going with a groovy tank top! You will also get a drink coupon for an adult or a non-alcoholic beverage, a medal, a fun bag and so much more!

If you are a NSNer and would like another NSN sweatshirt or would like to gift one to your favorite friend or family member please email us!. We over ordered and have lots for sell! They are only $25 or a donation. 

Flying pig trophies will be back again for first, second, and third place women and men runners and walkers.

If 13.1 miles sounds too far for your body we have added at 10k course! Now you have NO excuses! 

However, if even a 10K sounds worse than a hole in your head come for the Finish Line Celebration Party! This is FREE to attend and welcome to all! The fabulous Genevieve Duo will be on stage providing awesome music, we'll have food trucks, desserts, and locally-made beverages! We will have games, a raffle with AWESOME items, and face painting for the kids! It’s a family fun, all-are-welcome community event you don’t want to miss!

Kids 1/2 Marathon Mileage Log

Please print this Mileage Log to record your miles. On April 8th we will upload the next Mileage Log. Be sure to have an adult initial each recorded run/walk. If you do a mile a week, starting February 11th you'll have plenty of time to complete the 12.6 miles. If you sign up after February 11th, you'll just need to run/walk more each week. It's a great time to use your math skills! Be sure to bring your Mileage Log on Race Day--it's your ticket to finish! 

Food Trucks!!!


We are so thrilled to have both of these FABULOUS food trucks back AGAIN!
