2019 Races on our Radar #3: January 15

Welcome to the latest post in the 2019 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, let us know via email, twitter, or facebook!

Low-cost Races Coming Up Soon:

  • Next Wednesday, January 23 is the second Miles in Chiles indoor track race at the University of Portland. At this mini-meet, there will be a 200m, an 800m, and a mile, and each race is just $5 to run. Get more info here.
  • On Saturday, January 26, the Run With Grace 5k will step off at 10a in Medford. This race is only $15 and proceeds go to send underprivileged kids to camp.
  • The Roaring Run Half Marathon, running on February 2, is only $47. That’s a great price for a great half marathon! The race is in Scio and also offers at 10k ($37) and 5k ($32).

Other Races/Runs That Caught Our Eye:

  • The Truffle Shuffle is on Sunday, February 10 in Eugene, and they’re offering complimentary entries to all Veterans. And if you’re not a Veteran, the regsitration for this 2-miler and 4-miler is $25, with proceeds supporting Veteran’s families through St. Vincent de Paul. There’s a kid’s 700m Fun Run starting at 12:45p and the other races follow, with the 4-miler at 2p, giving you all morning to get things done before the race.

Upcoming Price Increases:

  • The awesome and long-running Zena Road Runs has a price bump starting on the 19th (Saturday). Sign up before then for $25 for any distance (3-mile, 6-mile, or 15k). The race is outside of Salem on Sunday, February 17.

About Author

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
