So Delicious Dairy Free is pleased to sponsor one of the premier events in our little hometown, the 2014 Eugene Marathon.  This Sunday, July 27th, top runners from all over the world will be participating in the 26.2 mile marathon run, as well as smaller races such as the half marathon and the 5k run.  The marathon has blossomed into a weekend long running and fitness at the Celebration of Running Expo.

The University of Oregon in Eugene has long been a beacon of track and field athletics.  The marathon in Eugene has attracted legendary runners such as Steve Prefontaine, Alberto Salazar and Ashton Eaton.  Known as TrackTown USA, Eugene, Oregon offers a strong grass roots community for runners to come together and celebrate the athletic experience.

The Health and Fitness Expo takes place at the University of Oregon Campus and begins on Friday.  The expo will include speakers, vendors and enthusiasts handing out samples and showcasing products tailored for the running and fitness community.  There will also be race registration and a pasta dinner.

The marathon and half marathon on Sunday will begin and finish at the University of Oregon campus.  The course runs south through town and then turns north and lends views of the Willamette River.  First place racers in the men and women’s categories will take home a $3,000 prize.

So Delicious Dairy Free loves athletes devoted to self-improvement, health and fitness.  We are thrilled to support this world-class event in our home community of Eugene.  Welcome to all marathon runners this weekend and watch for our sample booth at the expo.
