If you’re not an ORRC member, here’s a good reason to change that!

It’s called “Get Away with ORRC,” and it’s awesome.

Between now and December 10, 2015, members are invited to enter a sweepstakes in which ORRC is sending one member to a sweet destination race. The winner can choose from these four races:

  • The Desert RATS Trailrunning Festival, April 17-19, 2015 in Colorado: Distances include a double marathon, 50k, trail marathon, half marathon, and 5-miler
  • The Destination Races Santa Barbara Wine Country Half Marathon, May 9, 2015 in California
  • The Destination Races Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon, July 19, 2015 in California
  • Marine Corps Marathon and 10k in late October, 2015 in Washington, D.C.

All you need to do to enter is make sure your ORRC membership is current and then enter for your chance to win!

Not a member and want to join the club without spending any cash? Volunteer! For each volunteer shift worked, you’ll earn $5 ORRC bucks. Membership is only $30 for an individual and $40 for a family membership, so if you get five friends to volunteer with you (an aid station perhaps?) … you’re in! You can join online here.

About Author

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
