The following is from a press release issued by Terrapin Events today – note the discount is only offered to those that can verify their registration to a 2017 Vancouver USA Marathon event:
After months of intense training, the local running community recently suffered a spiritual blow, as the Vancouver USA Marathon was canceled merely weeks before race time. In an effort to console a fervent Portland-area running community, Terrapin Events (Terrapin) offers a discount to all runners affected by the recent cancellation.
For any participants affected by the recent Vancouver USA Marathon cancellation, Terrapin is offering a $20 entry fee to its two upcoming events, the Country Girl and Run Like Hell. The registration covers any distance of each race — half-marathon, 10K or 5K. Regular entry fees range from $44 to $109. Those who apply can contact Terrapin at email@example.com to receive their voucher.
“This offer is our way of reminding the massive and devoted running community in the Portland area that over the past 16 years, we have been dedicated to our promise to provide them the opportunity to participate in thoughtful and well organized events and will continue to do so in the years to come,” said Aaron Montaglione, president of Terrapin. “Runners in the Portland area should still be encouraged to train, push themselves to compete in local events and enjoy their tight-knit, supportive community.”
At all events, Terrapin provides participants with accurate (USATF certified) and well-marked courses, great race support, a fun post-race atmosphere, thoughtful and fun medals and shirts, attentive customer service and a positive way to get involved in the community.
