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 Willamette Valley Wine Festival that follows is a great place to reenergize, enjoy the catered lunch by Spin Catering, and try out some delicious local wines; all included in your registration!
