Are you ready to get loopy? The Summerlake Loopy Marathon and Half Marathon will be held on July 5. This is part of the Firecracker Five, which is 5 marathons/half-marathons 5 days in a row starting on the 4th of July. So, if you are looking for some holiday weekend runs, there are plenty to select from!
The Summerlake Loopy Marathon and Half Marathon is held at Summerlake Park in Tigard. This neighborhood park has a loop around Summerlake that is 0.9375 miles. This race guarantees you’ll be running in circles. 14 times for the half or 28 times for the full. Don’t worry, you won’t have to count your laps. This event is chip timed by Huber Timing. There will be a fully stocked aid station at the start/finish – which you will pass by on each lap – with Gatorade, water; and other items like chips, gummy bears, pretzels, etc.
All runners will receive a finisher’s medal and awards will be given to the top male and female finishers for each distance. Sport-Tek race shirts can be purchased at registration for $15. This race is capped at 100 runners, so register soon to get in on the loopy fun!
This race sounded like a different half marathon experience, so I just registered. I am looking forward to a new twist on the half. I hope to see you out there!
