Race Preview: 2018 Oregon Fall Half and Quarter Marathon and 5K (Canby)

Fall has a good argument as the best season: the weather is mostly mild, it has great holidays (Halloween and Thanksgiving), and kids go back to school. What better way to welcome it on September 8, 2018, than with the Oregon Fall Half and Quarter Marathon and 5K?

This is the fourth (and last) in Uberthons’ seasonal series of races, and even if you’ve participated in the previous three, this one will offer a different venue and experience. The venue is St. Josef’s Winery in Canby, about 30 minutes southeast of Portland. The race course takes place on paved roads, most in rural neighborhoods, with race volunteers controlling traffic (not much) at the major intersections. Whereas the Winter event showcases the Reserve golf course, and the Summer event highlights the Vernonia-Banks trail, the Spring and Fall events really show off the agricultural side of Oregon.

Half marathoners get race shirts, and all race participants get post-race Qdoba meals. That’s in addition to the finisher’s medals, age group winner pins, and overall/Masters’/Seniors’ winner medals, plus plenty of aid stations for race support.

For more of a sense of this race, read my recap of last year’s event here.
