The race once again starts at the Rogue Brewery, this annual fundraiser for Toledo Elementary School is sure to be tons o’ fun! The course is very similar to the Resolution Run, with an out-and back under the Yaquina Bay Bridge, along the streets alongside the South Jetty, and onto some of the paved paths before returning back to the start. In the Resolution Run, there was a mix-up with the volunteer being placed at the wrong location, leading to a shorter race. The RD acknowledged this and I can bet this will not be an issue in this race.
From experience, I can state that this is a relatively flat course with a little hill at the end of South Jetty and onto the paths of South Beach State Park. Winds can always play a factor on the coast, so come prepared. Also come prepared and in costume – as three winners will be selected to take home prizes. What are the prizes? COLD. HARD. CASH!
In addition to the race, entry comes with a race shirt (if registered prior to 2/23, a free Rogue beverage, food, a personalized bib, and $5.00 off any purchase at Nana’s Irish Pub.
