The Runaway Pumpkin Half Marathon 2014 Pre Race News!

Are you looking for a Fall Half?
 I recommend The Runaway Pumpkin Half!
Feeling good in the 2012 race!
It's October 18th in Lebanon, OR (Cheadle Lake Park) at 9:00am.
I have run this race twice and it's one of my favorites for several reasons.  I love to race in the Falls (cooler weather).  It's a really fun atmosphere with a costume contest.   You can walk or run.  It's a fundraiser for the ABC House in Albany, OR.  The ABC House is a Child Abuse Intervention Center serving Benton and Linn Counties.  It also has great food at the end!

There are a number of ways you can help or take part in this awesome fundraiser.  
~Run or walk the half marathon.  You can register here for $65.  Price goes up on Oct 7th.
~Buy a hoodie for $25 here.
~Can't make it? You can support ABC house by being a Virtual Runner for $45 here.
~Volunteer on race day.

The Runaway Pumpkin course is perfect for a beginner or if your looking for a Half PR.  Nice and flat.  It's a loop course.  Partly running along the water.  Race is capped at 1500. Currently just over 700 have registered. It is chipped timed. If you like to dress up, there is a contest for the best costume but costumes aren't required.  Packet pick-up will be Friday the 18th at the Phoenix Inn & Suites in Albany from 8-4.  If you can't make that, you can pick up your packet Saturday morning from 7:00-8:45.  You will get your awesome shirt at this time too.  There will be age group winner/prizes and the first place male/female will receive a $250 gift card to Lowe's and a free entry for next years race!  How sweet is that!?
2011, a fun year!
