About The Best in the West Triathlon Festival
The Best in the West Triathlon Festival Half Marathon is a 13.1-mile race that takes place annually in Sweet Home, Oregon on 9 September. The route of this half marathon is scenic and winding, taking runners through lush forests and along riverside paths. This course offers plenty of shade from the trees, making it comfortable to run even during hot summer days.
The terrain for this race is mostly flat with a few small hills here and there; nothing too challenging but enough to give your legs a good workout! On top of that, the views are stunning as you pass by riverside trails and wooded areas – perfect for snapping some photos while you run!
This region typically has mild weather during the month of September; temperatures range from highs in the 70s (Fahrenheit) to lows in the 50s at night. Rain isn’t usually an issue this time of year so you can expect good running conditions throughout your journey.
When it comes to crowds, you can always count on lots of friendly faces cheering on runners during this popular event! Spectators come out early and often line up along sections of the course with signs encouraging participants every step of the way; they make sure everyone gets an extra boost when needed most! Plus, there are several water stations located throughout so no one will go thirsty either.
One special feature about this half marathon is its post-race celebration which includes music, food trucks, awards ceremonies and more – all set against beautiful views of Mt Jefferson just outside town limits! It’s definitely worth sticking around after crossing that finish line!
Overall, I highly recommend signing up for Best in West Triathlon Festival’s Half Marathon if you’re looking for a fun yet challenging running experience near Sweet Home Oregon – complete with gorgeous scenery plus great people cheering along each section!
