Following is a message straight from one of the Champoeg 30K/10K race directors. Mark Takizawa, has a great preview of the event as well as a discount code good for the next two weeks…
Anyone running a spring marathon, should look into the Champoeg 30K. This is a great training run for a spring marathon. If you are running Boston, this fits nicely into the long run for you. It is Saturday March 1 at 7:00 AM. The course is 3 loops of the 10K course which is all in Champoeg park and most are on the roads or bike paths.
There are 2 aid stations set up so you will never be farther than around 2 miles from a aid station or a honey bucket. We will have handmade medals for all the 30K finishers. Some of the other perks are early packet pick up, pictures, food and raffle prizes.
Best thing is the price. If you sign up in the next 2 weeks you can use the discount code of “SPRING” to deduct $5 off the already discounted price of $35. Yes, that is only $1 per 1K. Such a deal. But the discount goes away on 2/14/14 and the price also increases by $10. That would mean $45 for the 30K from 2/15/14 until the day of race if not sold out.
