I had planned on running the half marathon back in 2011, but was about two months pregnant and sidelined by nausea, so I backed off and just did the 5k. I still want to do the half someday, but even the 5k was worth the trip. Keep in mind that there isn’t much shade on the route and it can get pretty toasty in that part of Oregon in early September, but it’s a beautiful run without any of the hype that’s easy to find at races nowadays.
Stick around for the awards ceremony at 11a in City Park. Age group and overall award winners receive medals, and there’s plenty of fun things to do (and delicious food to eat).
Here are the vitals:
When: Saturday, September 5, 2015
What time: Buses leave at 8a for the race starts
Where: Meet in downtown Mitchell (you won’t miss it) – just find the school bus and you’re in the right spot
