Providence Medford: Rogue Run Rescheduled to October 13th
Due to several forest fires in the area and poor air quality the Providence Rogue Runs Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k, and Kids’ Fun Run has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 13th. Rogue Runs will contact all participants and issue an announcement of the new 2018 date. All registered participants will be able to rollover the registration fee to the October 13th race and those that can’t compete on that day will receive a full refund.
“We regret any inconvenience to participants – but the smoky conditions are unsafe for physical exertion and training, and the safety and health of runners is our top priority”, said Race Director Jim Brendle.
“Moving the race to October will help local runners train longer in a healthier environment. We plan to use this weekend in October future events which should reduce the probability of rescheduling or canceling future events. October will offer more enjoyable weather with clearer air, cooler mornings and color in the leaves to showcase Southern Oregon.”
The race date has changed but the race course will remain the same, as well as its status as a Boston Marathon qualifying race. Runners with further questions can email race director Jim Brendle firstname.lastname@example.org. For those that would like to register for the Providence Rogue Runs Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k, or Kids Run can do so at therogueruns.com.
