Have you wanted to run or walk on, and truly experience, Pre's Trail? Well, you can experience it very nicely at the Easter Egg Stash Dash Half Marathon and 5K, which takes place on Saturday, March 19 in Eugene, Oregon! This is a family friendly event -- please bring the family, there is a distance for all to run or walk! (Or volunteer if you don't wish to race!). Choose from the half marathon, or the 5K distance. The half marathon, with a 4 hour time limit, will feature 3 beautiful loops of Pre's Trail. Half marathoners will have a total of nine aid stations available to them on the course - five with restrooms (WOW! Impressive!). For the 5K distance, runners and walkers will be treated with two aid stations, one with a restroom. 9 a.m is the start time for the half marathon, and for those participating in the 5K, your start will begin at 9:15 a.m.

Race day registration will be available beginning at 7:30 a.m. race day, but please register early to save some cash! Packet pick-up will also begin race day at 7:30 a.m. at Alton Baker Park by Pre’s Trail (east of Day Island Road).

Awards will be presented to the top three overall male and female finishers in each distance, as well as the top three in each age group. Participating in the half marathon? All half marathon finishers will receive a snazzy finisher medal at the finish line. I’m super excited to see it – there is a sneak peak of the ribbon above! Woot! The finisher medals are 2.5″ dyecast metal material. 

I’m excited to be participating in the half marathon this year and earn that lovely finisher medal. Pink Buffalo Racing always presents such great events, and I am very happy to be able to experience a new half marathon (to me!) this year. I hope to see you there!
