It was announced today that the Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon will be under local management and the registration fee has been reduced to $88/person (only $77/person when you sign up with a group of 6 or more participants). People living in Yamhill County save an extra $10, to encourage local runners to take part. There is also a 2-person relay option for $144/team. Learn more about registration and sign up here.
The Oregon Sports Authority, an established and highly-respected non-profit that promotes sport in Oregon, will oversee the event starting with the 2019 race on Sunday, September 1. Previous organizer Matt Docksteder of Destination Races will continue to support the event this year, working with a to-be-announced local race organizer. 2019 is the race’s 10th running, so you can expect the post-race Wine & Music Festival at the finish to be extra special this year.
The race will benefit Yamhill Carlton Togther Cares, a non-profit serving youth and family in those two communities. Race partners include Ken Wright Cellars, and many of the wineries that were involved in previous years will be there again, including Stoller Vineyards, Abbey Road Farm, and Carlton Cellars.
Run Oregon will definitely be there again this year, and we’ll continue to post updates on the race as we get them. Hope to see you there!
