The course: You’ll find our idyllic river valley erupting with greens and blooms along this very runnable new course starting at Willamette Mission State Park for a beautiful one or two loop course. Our updated course runs the first two miles inside of beautiful Willamette Mission State Park before exiting the park and running through the Willamette Valley farm lands looping around to the Wheatland Ferry Landing Ferry and then along the Willamette River and returning back where a fully-appointed after-party with band, food, and festivities awaits.
Formerly known as the Volcano Half Marathon/5K/10K. Register now for this half marathon, 10K or 5K in the heart of the beautiful Willamette Valley. Park at Willamette Mission State Park where you begin your 13.1 mile journey through beautiful farm lands and hop fields. All distances begin at 8am. The 5K is an out and back course. The 10K is an amazingly beautiful loop and the half marathon is a double loop variation of the 10K. All 3 races finish in the park. This course is mostly flat inside the park and on bike paths. Please stay to the right and run/walk against traffic and use the bike lane only on Wheatland Rd. and Matheny Rd. as the roads are not closed to traffic.
