Roaring Run Half Marathon

Looking for a good half marathon to start off the New Year?  How about the Roaring Run Half.  It's taking place in Scio, OR on January 31st.

  This will be my first half marathon of 2015 and I would love for you to join me.  If a half isn't for you, they are also offering a 5k and a 10k.  

Starting Time

  • 8:30 AM – half marathon early start
  • 9:00 AM – half marathon regular start
  • 9:30 AM – 10K
  • 10:00 AM – 5K

Fees ~ All Proceeds go to the cross country running program at Lebanon High School.

  • $30 for the half marathon, if registered by December 1, 2014
  • $35 between Dec. 2 – January 1, 2015
  • $40 between Jan. 2 – 28               
 The race will be starting and finishing at the Roaring River County Park.  This park is about 10 miles southeast of Scio, OR.  The race is open to runners and walkers, featuring a early start time if needed.  I haven't ran this race before, but it is explained as being mostly flat, gradual downhill and uphill.  The course sounds beautiful:  "runners will pass by rolling fields and horse farms, and finish the loop by running through the historic Larwood Covered Bridge."   I'm definitely going to go out and try for a PR for this one.
There will be an overall award for both men and women along with age group winners.
Everyone who finishes the half marathon will receive a finishers medal.
Following the race, all participants may feast on the baked potato bar.
