The 9th annual Corvallis Half Marathon and 5K will be held the weekend of April 13-14 (5K and 1K/1mi on Saturday, half on Sunday).
Once again the 5K is fast and flat, starting near Reser Stadium, running west on the Campus Way path, through the covered bridge, and back again. The half marathon course is mostly flat with “two slow gradual climbs”. There will be 4 aid stations on the half marathon course, offering water and electrolytes (but will not have food or gels, so be sure to bring what you need!). Walkers are welcome, as are strollers, but sorry, please leave your doggos at home for this one!
All finishers will receive a medal and the top male and female runners will divvy up a $2,500 purse for prize money!
Along with post-race food, a free drink from Block 15 or 2 Towns Ciderhouse, chip-timing, and a race tee, you can also bring all your retired running shoes hanging out in your closet / garage / trunk of your car, as Five Star Sports will once again be on site hosting a shoe recycling program. Shoes in good condition will be donated and shoes that are too far gone will go to Nike’s recycling program that uses them to create track surfaces.
