It's called the Downtown Yakima Mile and it's part of your Fourth of July weekend. The race is set for Saturday, July 2 and will feature races for kids, families, veterans, and elite runners. Plus walkers and dogs are welcome. It's a chance for you to have fun with the entire family while some watching world class runners.

If you're 18-years-old and younger you'll be running for free!

Because of the support of race sponsors Home2 Suites and Tru by Hilton-Yakima Airport, the Downtown Yakima Mile is free for runners 18-years-old and under. Senior citizens are $12.50, and all other runners can register for $25. A news release says this year’s race supports Yakima’s YWCA. "The Yakima Mile’s elite heats draw NCAA champions, U.S. champions and Olympians to the Yakima Valley.

The Yakima Mile attracts some very serious competitors every year

Last year, Nikki Hiltz charged away in the final two blocks to set a new Washington state mile record for women with a time of 4 minutes, :21.50 seconds. The men’s race featured Olympian Matthew Centrowitz, who won a gold medal in 2016 in the 1,500-meters, the first U.S. runner to win the event since 1908." There's plenty of prize money to win if you do enter a race. In fact the Downtown Yakima Mile Committee offers more than $45,000 in prize money across competitive and elite races. The organizers say the goal is to provide a healthy community event open to everyone, highlighting and celebrating the Yakima Valley on a local, regional, and national scale.
