A note from Steffanie Seiler - Uberthons Ambassador.
2019 Oregon Spring Half
2019 Oregon Spring Quarter
2019 Oregon Spring 5k
(Champoeg State Park and the town of Butteville)
If you are looking for a Spring running event that has it all, I’ve got a race for you!
The Uberthons Spring Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon and 5k will be held on Saturday, May 25th at the beautiful Champoeg State Park in St. Paul, OR. Although this location is a change from the previous couple of years, Champoeg is familiar territory for many Oregonians. Situated along the banks of the Willamette River with forests and fields all around you, it is a nature lover's paradise. It is easy to see why Uberthons chose this for their spring event.
I am currently in my third consecutive year of running the Uberthons Half Series – one for each season – and I could not be happier to be returning (this year as an Ambassador!). First introduced to Uberthons through a Facebook acquaintance and Uberthons Ambassador - who is now a dear friend, I have come to feel like part of the family.
These guys run a top-notch event from beginning to end. Even though these are not huge events drawing in thousands of runners, they operate at a level that makes you feel like it is a big deal. From smooth bib pick-up, to fun antics over the loudspeaker on race morning, to their awesome team of pacers, to the INCREDIBLE finishers’ medals, not to mention the delicious post-race food… it is all there.
The smaller nature of Uberthons events allows it to remain very welcoming and friendly. In fact, one of the things I look forward to most is seeing some of the same runners repeatedly at each event. They have become my friends and each event is like “old home” week. We get to catch up and laugh and share our latest running stats as well as what’s coming up next.
If I have not yet convinced you to register for one of Uberthons spring running events, let me leave you with this: Post-Race fuel is provided by Qdoba Mexican Grill and Jimmy Johns. YUM!!!
I hope to see you there.
