Catherine Creek Classic

August 7, 2021

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.  If you're looking for a PR, this is the race to do.


1 mile, 5K, 1/2 marathon


Finish line and staging area is at the Union Athletic Complex, W Dearborn St, Union, OR 97883. This is where the track and football field are located.

Please take the bus to the start of each race. There is no parking available at either the half marathon start or at the 5K start. There is also no transportation back to the start after the race.

Water stations are located approximately every 3 miles. Carrying your own fluid is also 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.

There are no bathrooms at the start of either race. However, half marathoners will have to chance to use the restrooms at Catherine Creek State Park on the bus trip to the start. These same restrooms are available to the half marathoners during the race, which is just past the 5 mile mark.


Along with the actual physical race, the Catherine Creek Classic is also going to offer  "Virtual" options this year.  The virtual option will be run from Aug 5-10, so you can run your chosen distance anytime during that time frame.
