The Run to Stay Warm has something for everyone on its course along the Willamette River; elite and novice runners and walkers will enjoy this annual half marathon, 10K, 5K and free kid's run. The course follows the paved bike paths of the Ruth Bascom Riverbank Trail along the beautiful Willamette River. Race your way through Steve Prefontaine's old stomping grounds and burn off some extra calories before the coming Thanksgiving feast! All courses begin and end at the new Downtown Riverfront Park. Not only is this race fun for all, it supports a great cause; raising funds for the EWEB Customer Care program, which helps income-eligible customers who are having difficulty paying their utility bills. Each year, the program helps thousands of families stay warm throughout the winter months.
