Race Preview: Eola Hills “No Hills” 5k/10k

Surely you’d expect that a race with the word “hills”, twice, in its title might in fact prove to be a hilly and challenging course. Rest assured that the Eola Hills Wine Cellars “No Hills” Harvest 10k and 5k, tentatively planned for Saturday, November 12th, 2022, actually boasts that there are no hills. Instead, runners and walkers are treated to a flat and fast course that starts and finishes at the award-winning winery in Rickreall, Oregon.

Currently the race date is tentative, and race registration is currently closed. Once the date has been confirmed, registration will reopen.

The Eola Hills “No Hill” Harvest 10k and 5k benefits the track and field and cross-country programs at both the Central and Dallas high schools in neighboring communities.

On race day, runners in the 10k will depart at 9 AM with the 5k participants, both running and walking, starting at 9:05 AM. Once done and back at the winery, enjoy pizza being hand-made on site, as well as a complimentary beverage which includes the choice of Eola Hills Wine Cellars famed wine. Registration for both events is $35 and there is a 90 minute time limit.

It’s important to note that this year, parking will NOT be available at the Polk County Fairgrounds. Parking will be available ½ mile south of Eola Hills Winery on the west side of Hwy 99, which is the same side as Eola Hills. Volunteers will be on site to help direct you, and please carpool if at all possible.

Speaking of wine, the top three finishers will receive Eola Hills wine as their prize. Ribbons will also be awarded to the top three finishers in each age division.
