The Albany Half Marathon, 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run is a not for profit event created to raise money for schools in Albany Oregon. All of the proceeds will be returned to Albany schools to generate better facilities and create/maintain after school programs which will focus on teaching youth positive lessons related to physical activity and making good choices.
The fourth annual Albany Half Marathon is a 13.1 mile loop course that starts and finishes at Timber Linn Park in Albany Oregon. Timber Linn Park is located roughly one mile off of I-5 adjacent to the Linn County Fairgrounds. It is a great beginner course for someone who is interested in running a marathon and will be an excellent preparatory course for the Portland Marathon two weeks later. It is also a quick course for seasoned runners who are looking for a personal record. Walkers and those with strollers and/or dogs are also welcome to participate. There will be professional chip timing brought to you by Eclectic Edge and all finishers will receive a gender specific dri-fit t-shirt and a medal upon completion. Awards will also be given to the top three male and female competitors in each age group.
This year we will also be continuing the 5k race and a 1 mile run for kids 12 and under with a back to school theme. The goal of instituting the 5k and 1 mile run is to give an alternative to local runners who still want to support Albany schools but are not quite ready for a half marathon. All participants will be eligible for the same great prizes that are awarded to the half marathon participants and will be guaranteed a gender specific dri-fit t-shirt if registered by September 1st.
