2009 La Sportiva USATF Oregon Mountain Running Series Announced

The La Sportiva USATF-Oregon Mountain Running Series is back again in 2009 - this time with 6 premium races around the state. The inaugural 2008 series featured scenic races on Mt. Hood, Mt. Bachelor, Mt. Ashland as well as a superb up and down challenge on the high ridges above crystal clear Applegate Lake. In addition to these 4 races the 2009 series adds a short but steep 2 mile challenge in the Columbia River Gorge and a new up / down format race in Oakridge, OR just East of Eugene. Great races also come with great rewards with one the top runners in the overall series winning a spot on the La Sportiva Mountain Running Team. Will Max King get a rematch on Mt. Hood against US Mountain Running Team member Joe Gray? Can Ashland speedster Erik Skaggs repeat his double victories at the Graniteman and Mt. Ashland? Who will win the 2009 series? It could be you!
