Price Increase Reminder! 2014 Cascade Half Marathon increase on 12/25

It may be Christmas Eve, but if you are scrambling for a last minute gift idea, you should log on and register a loved one (or yourself) for the 2014 Cascade Half Marathon. The cut-off to save yourself $15 is Christmas Day, so don’t delay!

Check out my preview  from earlier this month:

Last year was my first attempt at the Cascade Half Marathon. I was injured, the weather was below freezing the entire time, and I STILL had a great time. This race provides the perfect combination between a large number of registrants (near 1000 every year), yet still keeps its small town race feel.

Mick Evans,

The 15th Annual event is back in Turner on January 20.  The race starts and ends at Cascade Jr. High School with the route an out-and-back on quiet, rural paved roads. It is one of those races where you kind of lose yourself over the course due to the sheer remoteness of it. The race has some veyr long straight stretches with a few curves tossed in there as it meanders along side the farmland in the area. There is also a 10k and a 2-miler which follow the same initial route. There will be water stations at miles 2 and 5 (plus 8 and 11 for the half). Last year’s event featured bright orange long-sleeved tech shirts, though I haven’t seen the color scheme for this year. Medals will be given to half and 10k finishers.

While the weather can be chaotic in January, the school has men’s and women’s locker rooms will be open for changing, showering, and just keeping warm before and after the races. Make sure to follow the race on facebook here.
If you happen to be on the fence, don’t forget that this race was voted the Best 2012 Road Half Marathon by you guys- our RunOregon readers!
