Reed Runners Unite at 2015 Portland Marathon
We are hoping to double last year's showing and have 70-80 Reedies run the 2015 Portland Half or Full Marathon. We managed to negotiate excellent rates and, thanks to some financial support from the college, you can register at incredibly low prices for either the half or the full marathon as follows:
Staff & faculty: $75
**Alumni and similarly connected folks: $100
Please note that these smoking deals do include both a Reed Runner shirt and a Marathon Finisher shirt.
In order to qualify for these low rates, you need use our own registration site - I will send out details about how to pay to all registered Reed runners. If you have already registered for marathon at the official Portland Marathon site, please re-register on our site and check the "already registered box" so we know that you are planning on running, plus we may have some funds to contribute towards your registration.
Let me know if you have any questions. More info to follow as the summer progresses and the marathon draws nearer.
**Alumni, please note that, should we sell out of the 70 pre-paid registrations, priority will be given to current Reed students as well as faculty and staff.
