Eugene Marathon

May 5-7, 2017

The Eugene Marathon is entering a second decade of fast times and personal triumphs running in the footsteps of legends.  Named a “perfect race” by Runner’s World magazine, runners enjoy a scenic, USATF-certified course known for its flat and FAST route as it passes through beautiful parks and tree-lined paths that crisscross the picturesque Willamette River.  

Corvallis Half Marathon

Sunday, April 9, 2017

This scenic, 13.1 mile 'Tour de Corvallis' is mostly flat with two slow gradual climbs, and two gradual descents. The entire course is on paved roads, sidewalk and bike paths. The 5k is one of the flattest around. You can expect a PR on this course!

Girls on the Run 5K

GOTR 5K Logo

Saturday, June 3, 2017

The Girls on the Run 5K is not just fun for the girls in our program!  Its the most positive, inspirational local event for runners/walkers of all fitness levels.  The event is open to all community runners.  All proceeds from event registrations go directly to making the GOTR program affordable for girls regardless of their family circumstances.  

 We love ALL of our SoleMates

SoleMate registration is not limited to any particular race.  Choose your own and let us know the date of your big event.  Some SoleMates choose local 5Ks and others take on the challenge of mountainous ultramarathons.  Set your own goal and we will support you all the way!

We Love ALL our SoleMates
