Tackle the 2020 Half and Full Marathon Series Challenge

Challenging yourself is often the best way to stick to any training plan. The Pacific Northwest Half & Full Marathon Series has several challenge options if you’re willing to tackle a number of races this season. Runners can earn a four, seven or ten race challenge medal by completing races in the 2020 calendar year, and by making your final race a medal race. If you finish in the top 10 of your age group at races, you can earn additional points that are tallied for end-of-year male and female open and masters champions. The series kicked off January 1 in Maupin, OR, with the Deschutes River Half Marathon, but the challenge has more than 20 race options so there are plenty more opportunities to earn points.
