Uberthon's Winter Half Marathon and Half Series!

As we move into 2016 I am seeing many people post goals for the New Year and start registering for upcoming races!  I though it would be a great time to share some of my favorite races coming to Oregon very soon! I always love seeing people at the races I do! Hope you can join me for at least one!  Today I share with you:

January 23rd brings the Uberthons Winter Half! I like cold weather running, so I am excited about this one.  It will be held at The Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club in Aloha, OR.  Uberthons has had other races here that I've ran.  There is plenty of parking close to the start/finish. There will be a bag check for those needing it. It's off road, on the paved golf course. Check out the course map here! 

If a half isn't what your looking for, Uberthons also offers a 5k and quarter marathon the same day!  All finishers will receive a 4" belt buckle medal. All Half Marathoners will also receive an awesome long sleeved "winter half marathon" shirt.

If interested, don't delay in getting registered.  The half is limited to the first 250 people.  The quarter, 80 people and the 5k, 70 people.  If you want a great challenge or just love running half marathons, The "Uberthons Series" is for you!  All four season's,Uberthons is offering you a half marathon!  

You can register for the series or get more information here! 
If you register for the series you will save $50.00 and earn VIP status. All VIP's get access to the VIP tent.  A massage therapist, hot or cold drinks (depending on the weather).  Heaters or cooling fans (depending on the weather), and cheese and crackers at all the races.  Also, on Sept. 24th you will be invited to a VIP banquet for delicious food, awards and a slideshow of the year.
