Race Preview: 2022 Grateful Dad Half Marathon

“Put your money where your love is”

Happy Father’s Day!! If you are a father or you are looking to find a gift for the man in your life (or really if you just want to run a race), check out Terrapin Events’ 2022 Grateful Dad Half Marathon /10k/ 5k Run/Walk. There will also be a kid’s race – a perfect dad and family experience. If you’d prefer to run this race on your own, there is a virtual race as well!!

“There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night”

This event takes place in Milwaukie at the Elks Lodge along the flat Trolley Trail. This is an open use trail, so be aware that you might not be alone out there since it doesn’t close for this event. You can check out all the course maps on the website.

“When it’s good as it can be It gets better, wait and see”

Following the event, all participants will receive a race bib, an awesome medal, t-shirt, and beer or seltzer from New Belgium Brewing  if you sign up for “package #1.”  If you don’t need all the swag and just want the race bib and post-race beer, you can choose “package #2” for a lower price. Hang out after your race for the free beer and seltzer, a pancake breakfast, and some local vendors. Sounds like an amazing way to celebrate Father’s Day if you ask me. Get registered now and there will be “nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile”.
