There are those runners who love races that have hills mixed in them. There there are the sane runners who just want to run flat and straight. With a business name like Eola Hills Wine Cellars, one would think to expect a race at their location to be full of elevation changes. However, that is a little misleading, as the November 12th race, put on by the Willamette Valley Road Runners is called the Eola Hills Wine Cellars “No Hills” Harvest 10K Run & 5K Run/Walk.
While there may be no hills, there is the risk of wet and stormy weather (it is November after all). But fear not, at least you will only be running it, as the pre and post race activities have been inside the warm and cozy confines of the winery itself. After your run, refuel with delicious Mid-Valley wine (along with beer, soda, and water – but come on…the obvious choice is wine). The fee will also include a slice of on-site made pizza.
Proceeds from the run will be shared by the Track & Field and Cross Country programs at Dallas and Central High Schools. This race typically sells out, so register ASAP!
