Race Preview: 2020 HOTV Resolution Run/Walk (Corvallis)

Start out 2020 with the Resolution Run in Corvallis. This event is the perfect way to start out your healthy New Year. Not only will you be starting out 2020 with your first race of the year, you’ll be running your first race for free! That’s right, this event is FREE!

You can run or walk a 5K or a 2K. You can even sleep in a little after your New Year’s Eve shenanigans as the race doesn’t start until 10 A.M! Afterwards enjoy snacks and warm beverages and celebrate your first run of the year. Even though this event is free, please register in advance so that the organizers can make sure there are plenty of snacks and beverages for all participants.

This 11th annual run is put on by Heart of the Valley (HOTV) Running Club. Here’s what they have to say about this event:

HOTV starts the year with the Resolution Run: a fun, healthy, and low-key event to ring in the New Year with friends, family, and community. Let this new year be the start to a lifetime of transformation. The best part is that we don’t have to decide now what the end goal of that transformation is, because we are always changing. We can prepare for the transformations by making peace with our internal voices and by accepting all parts of ourselves without judgment.

From a runner’s point of view, we don’t have to hit a certain time, run a certain amount of miles, start or keep a streak, join a group, volunteer more, hit the track, pound the trails. But we could. We simply have to get out there, as often as we can and as honestly as we can.

​From a human being’s point of view, setbacks and detours are part of making a transformation, not the opposite. So let’s accept everything that comes our way as we venture into a new year.

Happy, healthy New Year, runners!
