TOUR OF OREGON
The Oregon Marathon continues its tour of Oregon. Kelly Barten, community blogger, says
The Uberthons Oregon Marathon and Half Marathon will be unlike any race you've ever run. Most races, which build each year by offering the same course, will undoubtedly grow for the exact opposite reason. The reason? The course will change every year and take place in a different part of Oregon, making it a true "Oregon" race.
When it landed in Mt. Angel for the 2014 and 2015 Oktoberfest, the Oregon and the Oregon Half could not have been more pleased. The venues are only the best - and this one surpasses them all! Away from the hustle and bustle of city streets, and out to the beautiful part of Oregon - yet over 300,000 visitors come to the Oktoberfest each year. So you know the Oktoberfest will be quite a party! With the Oregon Marathon and Half Marathon, the party just got better.

WHAT IS THE TIMING SYSTEM?
RFID (radio frequency identification) chips are on the back of the racing bib. Overhead antennas read the signal, and carry the signal through the computer system to produce your time instantly. Results are shown on monitors at the Finish Line. Wear the bib on the front so the chip will be read, and photos can be taken. The chips also activate cameras at the Finish Line - these photos should be available instantly. The results are available at itsyourrace.com and at results.uberthons.com. Plan to see your results on your smart phone at the event.
