Breakaway Promotions is excited to announce the newest addition to our marathon and half marathon series. On May 6th, 2018 we will be host the Willamette Valley Marathon right here in Salem at the Oregon State Capitol!

The Willamette Valley Marathon and Half Marathon combines the best of both worlds with the excitement of a big city run as well as the natural beauty of the great outdoors.

The event will start from the Capitol steps and continue to Salem's Riverfront Park, across the new Minto Bridge, and wrap around Minto Brown Island.

The event will finish with an amazing catered lunch and paired wine tasting open to family and friends as well!

This event is a must, the only downside is that we are capping the event at just 1000 people. So make sure you sign up early to get your spot!

Our webpage and sign ups will open up on Friday at 6 PM and will have some incredible early season deals!

Check back on Friday for more info, and just remember there is no wine-ing until after the run! 🍷
