Do you love small races that aren't crowded and just 'swimming' with tons and tons of people? If so, check out the Hazel Dell Half Marathon and 8K, occurring Saturday, February 20, 2016 at the Max Muscle Sports Nutrition store located in Vancouver, Washington.
This year, Energy Events is managing this annual race. Your start and finish line will be at the Max Muscle Store located at 9301 NE 5th Ave (Ste. 102) in Vancouver. This is an excellent opportunity to get in a half marathon or 8K (~5 miles) to put your winter training to the test. The course will travel through quiet neighborhoods, and through the Salmon Creek Trail. You'll have hills, smooth pavement, lovely views, and support along the course. And don't forget that finisher medal and shirt, which is included for all participants with registration.
The half marathon will take place at 8:30 a.m., and the 8K will begin at 9 a.m. There is a 3 hour finish time limit for those participating in the half marathon.
Currently, registration is $50 for the 8K, and $70 for the half marathon, until 2/20/2016. For those under 18, registration fees are $18 for either distance until 2/20/2016. Bonus! By participating in the Hazel Dell Half Marathon or 8K, you can register for the Energy Events Fort Vancouver 12K on 3/6/2016 for a super steal – $85 for both events until 2/20/2016.
