13th annual Run to Stay Warm fundraiser is Nov. 24

November 01, 2019

Run to Stay Warm runners coming off the starting line

If you're looking for a fun way to burn a few extra calories before the big Thanksgiving feast and do something good for the community, we have just the thing.

The Run to Stay Warm, featuring a half-marathon, 10K, 5K and Kids' 400-meter dash, is on Sunday, Nov. 24. The event takes place at EWEB Headquarters, 500 E. 4th Ave, and the flat, scenic course along the Willamette River is accessible to all abilities.  

Some exciting changes to announce for this year's event:

  • We are proud to announce that the Eugene Marathon is now officially the race operator of the Run to Stay Warm. Their team brings decades of race management experience that benefits participants, sponsors, and our customers.
  • The courses have been slightly altered due to the riverfront development project, but you will still find the courses flat and beautiful!

While race operations have changed hands, the Run to Stay Warm's mission has not.  As always, a portion of every race registration will go to support EWEB's Customer Care Program, an assistance fund for individuals who are struggling to pay their utility bills.

Now in its 13th year, the race has consistently attracted more than 1,000 runners and walkers from across the country and has raised more than $250,000 for EWEB's Customer Care Program.

To register, visit  This race has something for everyone, including elite and novice runners and walkers. And don't forget the free Kids' 400 meter dash (no registration necessary for Kids' race).  

Please consider helping on race weekend! Opportunities include helping with packet pick-up, finish line, kids' race, course monitoring and much more. Visit sign-up.
