Race Preview: 2016 Crush Cancer 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon

 The 4th Annual Crush Cancer race will be held on September 18 at Faith, Hope, and Charity Vineyards in Terrebone, Oregon. While this is the 4th year for the 5K and 10K races, 2016 will be the first year to include the half marathon distance. The courses will run through farmlands and the vineyards and will include views of the Three Sisters Mountains on a mix of gravel/dirt and pavement. Proceeds from this race will go to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

Racers will receive a shirt, commemorative wine glass, and their first wine or beer free (for those 21 and over.) The post-race celebration includes music, food, and drink at Faith, Hope, and Charity Vineyards.

I love running in Central Oregon, so this race sounds like one to put on the list for sure! You can check out the course maps here: 5K route, 10K route, half marathon route. Enjoy a run in beautiful Central Oregon, help raise money to fight cancer, and spend a little time at a vineyard. What’s not to like about this event?
