Catherine Creek Classic

August 3, 2024

The Catherine Creek Classic is truly a classic. This event has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the most scenic events around, and the support is truly top-notch. It is also a fast, slightly downhill course, so if you’re looking for a PR, this is the race to do this summer (and every one after).

β€”Make sure to follow us on Instagram @catherine.creek.classic for race updates, cool history, and awesome race sponsors and prizes to look forward to!

1 mile, 5K, 1/2 marathon

On-site registration as well as the finish line and staging area is located at the Union High School (540 S Main St, Union, OR 97883).

Race shirts are available for an additional $20 fee. (See this year’s theme below and Β @catherine.creek.classic on Instagram.) Make sure you order your shirt BEFORE July 21β€”to ensure you get one of these limited butter-soft beauties! Ordering after July 21 will NOT guarantee a shirt, and as we’ll only have a few extras for sale on race day, don’t bank on getting one there.

Male/Female age groups: under 12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+

Awards will be given to the overall winners of each race, male and female. (Must be present or have a representative there to get your award as no ribbons/medals will be mailed out.)

BUSES: You will need to take the bus to the start of the 5k and half marathon. (The 1-mile starts and ends at the high school.) There is no parking available at either the half marathon or 5K start. There is also no transportation back to the starting lines after the race.

BATHROOMS: There are bathrooms available in the small gym near the high school. Ask at the registration table for location!

There are no bathrooms at the start of the 5k or half marathon, save the Restroom of the Great Outdoors. However, half marathoners will have the chance to use the restrooms at Catherine Creek State Park on the bus ride to the start. These same restrooms are available to the half marathoners during the race, which is just past the 5-mile mark.

WATER STATIONS: They are located approximately every 3 miles on the half marathon course, with one landing in the 5k course. Carrying your own fluid is always a good idea. Though the start is usually fairly cool, the valley warms up rapidly and the second half of the race can be hot. Hydrate in the days leading up to the race!

HALF START TIME: We have moved the start time of the Half Marathon to 7am (from 7:30am in past years) to help combat the heat!
