Breakaway to the Capitol City at the 2022 Willamette Valley Marathon

The Willamette Valley Marathon, Half Marathon, and 10K will be held in Salem on Sunday, May 29.  Breakaway Promotions WVM is back for its 4th year combined with the Willamette Valley Wine Festival. As always, there is a marathon, half marathon, and 10K  for runners to take advantage of. All races will start at Riverfront Park then head over the new Peter Courtney Bridge into Minto-Brown Island Park and follow the Willamette River south before looping back and finishing back at Riverfront Park in downtown Salem. You can check out the course details here.

The courses will have aid stations approximately every 2.5 miles stocked with water, Gatorade, GU, bananas, fruit snacks, and most importantly – port-a-potties! The routes are fairly flat with 350 ft. elevation gain for the marathon, 150 ft. for the half, and 115 ft. for the 10K.

The wine festival that follows is a great place to reenergize, enjoy the catered lunch, and try out some delicious local wines; all included in your registration!
