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!
This is a light weekend, because there are a zillion races on Thanksgiving.
- This Saturday, November 23rd is the next Stumptown XC race. This one is at Fernhill Park and is $15.
- You can also run in the free weekly ParkRun 5k. You have to register online and show your bar code on your phone to participate, but it’s totally free. With a nice late 9a start time, what’s your reason not to try it some Saturday?
- On Sunday this week is the Run to Stay Warm in Eugene, and if you sign up before the 21st, you’ll still save a little money. Through the 20th, the half is $80, the 10k is $45, and the 5k is $40. This race raises funds for EWEB customers who need a little help with utility bills in the winter.
