Races on our Radar #15

One of the rolling hills from the Goat Mountain Gallop Half Marathon.

Welcome to the 14th Edition of Run Oregon’s Races on our Radar. Got news? Tell us about it!

  • Act fast to enter our giveaway of 3 pairs of FITS socks – the online sweepstakes ends on Friday, April 14 and winners will be announced on the Run Oregon facebook page.
  • There’s a really cool, low-cost half marathon on Saturday, April 15. The Goat Mountain Gallop Half Marathon is only $45 including a shirt, but online registration closes at 11:59 on Wednesday, April 12. It’s only $35 without a shirt – you can’t find a half marathon at such a low price very often. It’s a challenging point-to-point course with proceeds benefiting the Molalla High School Track Team, who also put it on.
  • Another cool race coming up that benefits a school is the Stoller Community 5k + Jaguar Jog. This race is scheduled for Sunday, April 23 in Portland’s Bethany neighborhood and is only $30 for the 5k.
  • Yet another fun local race, this one featuring Pizza Roma snacks and beers from Lompoc Brewing. (Pizza Roma is owned by a runner!) The SE Dash and Bash 5k is on Sunday, April 30 and is only $25. Proceeds will go to the Windermere Foundation, which funds programs that work with low-income or homeless families and children.
  • The Troutdale Trot, a 6.7-mile distance (good chance to PR at a new distance!) running on Saturday, May 13. This is the race’s 40th year; and this event has a beautiful course that runs along the Sandy River for a good portion of the distance. Check it out and get yourself registered for $40 here. (The race is absorbing the online processing fees – so it’s truly just $40.)

That’s all for this installment. Readers and RDs, if you have a newsworthy announcement, please send it our way so we can share it with our readers!

About Author

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
