Race Preview: 2017 Oregon Fall Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon, and 5K (Canby)

I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready for fall to get here. Enough with the 90+ (or gasp, 100+) degree days. Enough with the blinding sunshine.

And here to welcome the best season of the year is the last of Uberthons’ seasonal events, the Oregon Fall Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon, and 5K, on September 9. (The others were the Winter event at The Reserve, the Spring event at Heirloom Roses, and the Summer event at the Banks-Vernonia trail.)

The Fall event takes place at St. Josef’s Winery in Canby, which offers a mostly flat, scenic trip through Oregon wine country. All three distance events are out-and-backs, although the half marathon has a ~2.5 mile loop at the farthest point from the start. For my recap of last year’s event, click here.

All participants get chip timing, a finisher’s medal, entry to the post-race Qdoba spread, and other food and drinks; plus, there are age-group pins and overall winner medals (1st, 2d, 3d overall, 45+, and 65+). Half marathoners get the half marathon race shirt, too.
