Races on our Radar #41

Here’s what Run Oregon has been keeping an eye on this week. Remember, if you know a really cool small race, an important registration deadline, or other fun running news, please send it our way so we can share it with our readers!

  • Free event/Date Change:  The Tualatin Discovery Run, normally on Thursdays, is moving it’s October event to Wednesday, October 25. RSVP here and spread the word
  • Registration still open: The Great Columbia Grossing 10k still has spots for their Sunday, October 15 race. You can still get in until they reach the 3,500 participant cap for just $40.
  • Feeling good after your marathon? ORRC’s Autumn Leaves 50k and 50-miler is on Saturday, October 28 and a great way to use your training when you’ve still got some “race” in you. There are only 13 spots left in the 50-miler and 7 in the 50k, so don’t wait to register. Non-ORRC members pay $105 for the longer distance and $85 for the shorter; ORRC members save $10 off those rates.
  • Cool Halloween Run this weekend: St. Helens Monster Dash – this run is on Saturday, October 14 at noon. This is a non-profit race being organized to raise money for local veterans and includes a 5k and 10k. Online registration is closed but you can register day of race for this great cause. It’s a bit on the higher-priced side, but for a great cause. DOR reg is $50 for the 5k and $55 for the 10k.
  • Cool Not-Halloween Run next weekend: The Day of the Dead is not Day for the Dead Race the same as Halloween, and here’s a chance to run a cool race and learn more about this cultural event. The is on Saturday, October 21 in Talent at 10a, and the 5k is only $20 while the 10k is a mere $25. There’s also a timed mile for $10 and an untimed one for $5.
  • Who needs Halloween when there’s OSU Football? They may have a new head coach, but the Gridiron 1k/5k Fun Run to benefit KidSpirit is a football-themed obstacle course run on the OSU campus. Saturday, October 21 at 9:30a. The kids 1k is $15 and the 5k is $30.

That’s all for this installment.

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.
