Small Race Preview: 2019 The Food Run 5K and Half (Weston)


Weston, OR is a small town over near Pendleton but they’re doing a big thing on Saturday, September 21st! They will be hosting The Food Run, a 5K run/walk and half marathon to benefit the Weston Food Pantry.

Both distances with start and end at the city park; the 5K is an out and back with about 400 feet of elevation gain and the half marathon is a wonky, lollipop-esque course along gravel backroads with rolling hills (a good challenge, with almost 1,000 ft of climbing!).
