Race Preview: 2020 Roaring River Run Half Marathon/10k/5k (Scio)


A peaceful rural country road race is coming your way on February 1st in Scio, OR. The 2020 Roaring River Run brought to you by Santiam Running will offer scenic views of forests, pastures, mountains, and the river that gives this event it’s name to keep you moving.

There are three distances to choose from on race day, and you can run or walk. The half marathon has two different time options: The early start at 8:30AM and the regular start time of 9:00AM. The 10k kicks off at 9:30AM and the 5k will be at 10:00AM. There will also be a one-mile dash. All distances will begin and end at Roaring River Country Park, a beautiful 28-acre park that is located about 10 miles southeast of Scio. This event will benefit the cross-country running program at Lebanon High School.

Low-traffic country roads await, as well as the Roaring River Valley in Northwest Oregon, and it should be a spectacular race. All runners will start by leaving the park and heading East on Fish Hatchery Drive and they will continue on a counter-clockwise loop along roads that parallel the river. Runners will get to finish by running through the historic Larwood Covered Bridge, which was built back in 1939 and spans more than 100 feet across Crabtree Creek. Check out the course map for the half marathon distance here.

The cost of this race is only $27 for the 5k and $32 for the 10k. The half is $42 and race day registration will not be available for the early start half marathon, so reserve your spot now!
