Ready to run your first half marathon or 10K of 2019?  The 2019 Y2K event features a Half Marathon Run, a 10K Run, and a 10K Walk.  The 10K Run/Walk is part of ORRC's 2019 10K Series.  All races start and finish at Tom McCall School in Forest Grove, Oregon and the course is run on country roads in scenic wine country.  The half marathon and 10K courses are together for the first three miles, then split, and then rejoin for the last 1.5 miles.  Participants can warm up inside the school cafeteria before and after the race and are also treated to a delicious post race pancake breakfast prepared by and benefiting the local Forest Grove United Church of Christ Temporary Emergency Shelter.
