About the Race
Crowning the Waterville Plateau, the small community of Waterville is surrounded by large expanses of wheat fields and a spectacular view of the majestic Cascade Mountain Range. Founded in 1885 and incorporated in 1889 by the Territorial Charter, it holds the long-standing claim as the highest incorporated town in Washington State with an elevation of 2,625 feet above sea level.
Come Join us and test your lung capacity! The “Thin Air 5k” race is just one small part of the Waterville Days Festival activities.
