Race Preview: Eugene Holiday Half & Hustle 10K/5K

Join Pink Buffalo Racing for the annual Eugene Holiday Half  & Hustle on December 20th at the Lane County Fairgrounds.

Packet pickup is available before the event to avoid long lines on race day.  Head over to Claim 52 Brewing (1030 Tyinn St. Eugene, OR 97402)  on Friday, Dec. 19th from 5pm-7pm.   Otherwise, packet pickup is available on race day morning in Expo Space 2 at the Lane County Fairgrounds from 8:30am-9:45am.

Lace up those fast running shoes because cash prizes are available for the overall top three female and male champions in the half marathon and the first masters male and female (40 and above) in the half marathon.   Teams declared before race day that are also competing in the same distance are eligible for prizes as well.  Fastest team, most spirited team, and largest team will be the categories for teams to compete in.  What is your team name?   I’m regretting not signing up on a team now…

The course this year will be an out and back along Fern Ridge Path, which is completely paved.

Strollers are welcome for this event, and asked to start towards the back of the pack and to always stay to the right for easy passing.  Dogs are not allowed at this event location.   There is a 4 hour time limit for this course for all distances.

Aid stations are available on the course and will only be serving water, so plan accordingly.  Also, please don’t litter.   One aid station is available for the 5K, two for the 10K and four for the Half.  Toilets are available on the course at mile 3, 6 and 8.5 of the half marathon.

Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female finishers in each age group and all half marathon finishers will be awarded a finisher’s medal.  The design is a secret, but if you check out the facebook event page, you can see the medal for last year was very beautiful with it’s pressed glass design.

Shirts are available for purchase until November 30th for $12.  If they are anything like last year’s shirts, these will be a fun and comfortable with a hood to help keep you warm.

No Pre-Registration is needed for the Kids Dash.
