Race Series Preview: Run With Paula in 2022

If you’re a runner and you do road races in Oregon, you’ve heard of Run With Paula Events. Paula Harkin is the race director for several wonderful events throughout the year and her races are the Gold Standard. Every one of them is well marked, well organized, well supported, and (most importantly,) well loved. The courses are often challenging (Hello Helvetia Hills!) but beautiful (Ah, Bridge of the Goddess!!) and well worth the price tag. Not only will you get a spectacular run, the swag is top notch and good quality, and the after party is always fun. You will always get fed well at a Run With Paula race and you’ll walk away happy.
