Stage Details

Course Description:

Ace likes to change everything; this course might be hard, too. The Builders FirstSource Waterville Road Race incorporates roads in the classic Waterville wheat country. This course is flat with rollers, but don’t be deceived into thinking it’s an easy task! The wind just may play a role in the outcome. The 2022 course is updated to include two loops. The “Town Loop” is approximately 9 miles long and passes through downtown Waterville on Main Street. The “Country Loop” is roughly 20 miles long and includes the classic elements of our usual course.

Staging: In front of the Waterville High School, 200 E Birch Street  Waterville Wa 98858

Feed Zone:  4 miles into course. Feeding only on laps as above. In the case of extreme temperatures and conditions, at the discretion of the Chief Referee and Race Director and when announced at the start, water hand-ups from the race caravan may be available.
