If you’ve got a prom dress or a tux that’s just taking up room in the back of the closet, pull it out and join your fellow runners at the 2020 Winter Formal 5k Run/Walk in Corvallis on February 1st. In addition to the 5k, there’s an untimed 1k Kids Run, a 1 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk, and a Beer/Cider Mile Relay.
The start and finish location, as well as packet pick-up, will be at the Trysting Tree Golf Club. Free parking will be available there, but of course carpooling is encouraged. Saturday parking on the streets of downtown Corvallis is not free, so plan accordingly. No dogs or strollers will be allowed on the 5k course, as the bike path is a bit tight and race organizers would like to keep this event safe. However, strollers will be allowed for the 1k and 1 mile course. If you’d like to take a peek at the course maps for the 5k, 1k, or 1 Miler, check them out here.
The 5k race will begin at 3:00PM and will be open until 4:30PM, which allows 1.5 hours for the 5k participants to complete the race. The 1 Mile Family Run, Walk, Roll & Stroll will begin at 4:00PM, as well as the 1k Kids Run. The Beer/Cider Miler Relay starts at 4:15PM.
The Beer/Cider Mile Relay will be 4 legs long, and each participant of a 2-4 member team will drink/chug 12 oz of 2 Towns Cider or Block 15 Brew before running ¼ mile. After each participant finishes their ¼ mile leg, they will tag the next team member who will then drink their beer/cider and run. Team members must be at least 21 years of age, and there will be no awards for the Beer Mile Relay.
The cost for this event is only $30 for the 5k if you’re an adult, and $20 if you’re under 18. Everyone gets a free beverage (Block 15 beer, 2Towns Cider, or Hot Chocolate Bar,) food, and free photos. Registration will close the Thursday of race week at 9:00PM. The 1k and 1 Miler is $15 (kids 3 and under are free with parent registration) and all participants will get a finisher prize. The Beer Mile Relay is $25 for 4 participants and includes 4 beers/ciders in the registration. Super fun tuxedo tech shirts are available for only $10. They will only be available during registration until January 1st and they are not guaranteed to late registrants on race day.
There will be awards for the top 3 overall men and women for the 5k as well as age group awards. There will not be awards for the untimed 1k and 1 Miler. There will be an award for Best Awkward Prom Photo, so be sure to visit the photo booth to take some pics so you can get in the running for a free race entry for next year.
