Early deadline nears for virtual races

Samaritan Foundations and SamFit are partnering to present the first-ever Samaritan Walk Run Roll 2020, a virtual 5K, 10K and half marathon that participants will complete at their own pace between Sept. 10-20.

Entrants who register for the virtual race by Monday, Aug. 24, will receive a unique race bib, a custom event T-shirt and a finisher’s medal.

Racers will track their own distance and time to upload to the race event site. They can even share a photo of themselves racing so others can see how much fun they are having while getting fit.

The registration deadline to include a T-shirt with your entry is Aug. 24, and you must be registered by Sept. 1 to guarantee receipt of race packet prior to the race dates.

A 50 percent discount is available to youths up to the age of 18 who are on the Oregon Health Plan managed by InterCommunity Health Network (IHN-CCO). To get a promo code, send an email to [email protected] with name, date of birth and member number for member verification.
