Imagine running along wide suburban parkways, between red and green maples, flowering cherries, and blooming forsythia. You catch glimpses of the McKenzie River through the charming orchards, and the Willamette River runs with you!
My husband and I loved the small scale of this race, especially the ability for all the family members and friends to celebrate with their loved ones as they crossed the finish line. We loved the run, and we loved witnessing the sweet moments and personal victories. Very well done!
Raced for a BQ.My watch I did,but ran an extra mile due to poor course directions,I did not.Volunteers need to be directing everyone for turns,because little signs don't help,& chalk fades.I've done small races where they had big signs & used cones & also had people directing runners,as we are focused,that it helps they be there to wave us in the right direction.Since every runner is spaced out,it be best to do that.waste of a trip, as I came to run and BQ.Race ruined it for me.
Gorgeous course. Loved the finish line party. It was nice to finish and have everything you desired right at your fingertips. I have never seen a race that didn't have food on the course until mile 18. That took me from running the race of my life to full bonk and nearly dropping from the race. Outside of that all things were great in my opinion. I will do it again(and I am not much of a fan of marathons.)
