Welcome to a new year of the Races on our Radar series, where we report on cool and/or low-cost races, group runs, price and registration deadlines, and other things we think you should know about it.
We would like to you hear from you, too. If you’re in the know on a race that you think others need to check out, be sure to let us know with our contact form. Tell us what you love about it and be sure to include a link.

The last day to “rent” a volunteer for just $125 for the 2018 Cascade Lakes Relay is February 1. If you’re planning to use this option and haven’t yet … get on it!

The Napa Valley Marathon has offered a $10 off code for it’s March 4th race in … where else but Napa? Their website has a “Getaway Weekend” page so you can find a place to stay and where to eat while you’re there. It’s truly a destination race and with the code RUNOREGON10 you’ll pay $155.
A short radar this week, but starting February the number of races really picks up and I’ll keep you posted on those I like and those with low registration fees. Until then, get out when you can and enjoy the last week of the month!
