• Eugene Marathon and Half 2022

    05/01/2022

    We had 8 marathoners in the race, 3 marathon pacers, and 7 half-marathon runners. It was an amazing experience to run on our home course but with the new experience of finishing on the new Hayward field. It was a big day and there were some incredible PR's for the day. PR or not it was an accomplishment for everyone who ran that day. Many of our runners faced long periods of stress, illness, or injury over the past year and this race was a celebration of progress and how much everyone has overcome. So proud of the team, many tears this day.

    "I was really happy to run my second sub-3 hour marathon at Eugene this year, and get my qualifier for a return trip to Boston, hopefully with many of my 5AM teammates. While I didn't PR, I feel like I ran a smart race given how my body was feeling, and overall I definitely think this spring training cycle was a big success for me. Finishing on the track at Hayward is always a plus!"

    "Hayward Field is where the monikers 'Track Town, USA' and the 'Emerald City' converge. There’s no place like Hayward. Finishing on this historic track and taking a piece of the old stadium with me, in the form of a finisher’s medal, makes my first Eugene Marathon all the more significant."

    "It’s such a magical experience to feel the paths and streets you’ve run a thousand times transformed through the power of race day. One thing stays the same: Lonn will suddenly pop up where you least expect him and shout exactly the right thing to keep you pushing through."

    "This has been a goal I've been looking to conquer for a long time. After a series of unfortunate events - getting hit by a car, struggling through graduate school, COVID - this was my first marathon in 7 years. I am not a natural marathon runner; it's a very difficult distance for my body and this was a big victory for me to reach this time. It is another example of how running has helped me find strength and courage in myself."

    "Pacing the marathon (versus racing it) was fulfilling in a whole new way - it was humbling and exciting and connected me to my community in a way that can’t even be put into words. A chance to reflect on everyone else’s stories and what brought us all here. The highlight of the race was seeing everyone finish amongst the shouts, claps, smiles, and history of Hayward Field."
