Mark your calendars, the 8th annual Canby Dahlia Run is scheduled for August 25th, 2018 This will be during the Dahlia Festival in Canby OR. There are two distances to choose from, 10K run/walk and half marathon. If choosing the half marathon race, you will not be disappointed, as this course will run through the dahlia fields.
The 10K run/walk will feature a course on the old logging road right from the start, with the first hill at mile 1.5. Farm houses, wheat fields throughout the course will let participants know, “we are definitely not in Portland, anymore”. There is another memorable hill appearing at the halfway mark, but don’t worry, there will be many water stations and volunteers along the course. The best part of the 10K run/walk course is the downhill finish!
The half marathon course will not disappoint, as participants will be running through the dahlia fields (it does not get any more beautiful than that!). The course will feature spectacular views of wooded forests, golf courses, quaint residential streets and the Willamette River. It will also have some hills (thankfully short, but steep nonetheless). There will also be many volunteers along the course, with plenty of water offered. This race will also feature a 1/4 downhill sprint finish.
Unfortunately, No dogs will be allowed on either race course.
Participants of the 10K and half marathon will all receive a finisher medal and a fresh cut dahlia when crossing the finish line. Top finishers for the top three males and females of each age group of ten year age brackets, will also be given awards.
