Race Preview: 2018 Eola Hills Wine Cellars “No Hills” 5k walk/run 10k run (Rickreall)

Eola Hills Wine Cellar “No Hills” Run,  will be held on November 10th 2018 this year. This small town country race is not only beautiful, but fast! Both the 5k and 10k start on the paved bike path just outside of Eola Hills Winery.

Don’t let the name “Eola Hills” fool you! This race is about as flat and fast as you can get, gettings its name “NO HILLS.”  You can walk or run the 5k, or run the 10k.  Keep in mind, there is a 90 minute time limit. When you finish back at Eola Hills Winery, enjoy a slice of pizza, and a soda inside the warm beautiful building.  Those 21+ can also enjoy a glass of wine or beer while waiting for race results..

This year there will not be parking available at Polk County Fairgrounds. While carpooling is encouraged, there will be volunteers directing participants to the free parking just down a 1/2 mile on Hwy 99 (same side of the street at Eola Hills).
