A few hours away from the city, but miles away from the ordinary, Suncadia is not just a place, it’s a tribute to the legacy of the land, a community of individuals looking to retreat into nature’s embrace. It’s the reason why we live by the philosophy to respect and preserve the natural character of the site.
Over 4,600 of Suncadia’s 6,400 acre-wide lands are designated open space, home to several stretches of native forest with special conservation initiatives for the indigenous flora and fauna. As part of our commitment to the stewardship of the land, we’ve created a wildlife preserve of more than 3,400 acres known as the Suncadia Conservancy, running along both banks of the Cle Elum River and protected by an agreement with the Kittitas Conservation Trust.
As a way to ensure the conservancy has the means to continue sustaining the local environment, we have organized the Suncadia Conservancy 10k, a benefit race where a portion of the ticket price goes to support the local conservancy, which manages the land and wildlife. Beginning at Nelson Farm, the course will cover the most scenic parts of the resort, passing through forests, trails and the open road. The route accommodates runners of all skill levels but is specially designed for beginners and intermediate level athletes. The day will end with an after-party by the pool, where participants and their loved ones can enjoy light bites and beverages, while a DJ spins foot-tapping tunes.
