Oregon Spring Half marathon, 5k & quarter marathon
HALF MARATHON, QUARTER, & 5K
Welcome to Oregon to those of you who are coming from 18 different states! If this is your first time, extra, extra welcome! You are here to enjoy the Oregon Spring Half Marathon, Oregon Spring Quarter Marathon, or the Oregon Spring 5k . . . good for you! You will be interested in the Oregon Fall Half Marathon, the Oregon Summer Half Marathon, and the Oregon Winter Half Marathon and the accompanying Quarter and 5k events. We will keep track of your results to see how you do each year!
The Spring event is, of course, at Heirloom Roses Nursery. This may be your first experience running here. The 2017 course is beautiful - just like all the courses of the Uberthons Oregon Event Series. Plenty of volunteers and signs will direct you - you will not get lost. Everything is on asphalt. Print a course map HERE.

About 1/3 of the Spring participants are registered for all four of the Oregon Half Marathons this year. We recognize that some of you will yet become Series owners by participating in the Spring, Summer, and Fall Half Marathons, and when you do, you, too, will be invited to the Oregon Half Marathon Series dinner at the end of the season. It is fun to see you all year long!
