(RWire) Athletics: Inaugural Eugene Women's Half Marathon Announced for Labor Day Weekend 2010

Runners to be "pampered" after covering 13.1 miles through Track Town USA

EUGENE, Ore. - (December 1, 2009) - The inaugural Eugene Women's Half Marathon will take place on Sunday, September 5, 2010 and will be capped at 2,500 runners and walkers. The 13.1 mile event will be produced by the Eugene Marathon. Since 2003, according to Running USA, the half-marathon has been the fastest growing road race distance in the U.S. with double digit gains over the past three years.

"We want to have the best schwag for our runners and walkers of any event in the Northwest with stylish gifts, champagne and a spa at the finish line," said event director and two-time Olympian Nicole Teter.

The fast course starts in downtown Eugene and finishes at the 5th Street Market. Finishers will be greeted with wine tasting, chocolates, a yoga studio and a Gervais Spa experience to unwind after their half-marathon.

This event will be a fund raising platform for the American Cancer Society and the Ovarian Cancer Alliance.

2010 event sponsors include: Pepsi, Gatorade, Earth2O, GloryBee Foods, Krusteaz, Gervais and the Fifth Street Market.
