Letter From the Race Directorupdated April 16, 2013
Our goal is to organize a professional event with several amenities for a great price and I believe our team is exceeding the expectations of our participants. Our Marathon is under $100 and with the half under $75, which is AWESOME! While many other races and events are popping up left and right we strive to do what we do: execute a quality event that is fun and has plenty of Energy! Our sponsors and vendors are excited for some of the new changes with the Vancouver USA Marathon Weekend.
The VUM "Active" Expo is all outside next to the Main Stage and the Vancouver Farmers Market. The 1-acre Esther Short Park is a perfect summer setting and now with a Summer Brewfest (Summerbrewfest.org) everything is in one place! We have already turned away several breweries and feel that 20 with 2 taps is quite a variety for you: 40 Beers to taste, drink and "cheers" your accomplishment! There will be plenty of other beverage options too: Muscle Milk, Gatorade, VISO, Mt. Dew, Water, Jamba Juice and more! Bring your friends and family down to the park for some Father's Day Weekend Fun and excitement~
The Medals will be announced on our next VUM Confirmation Email, and you are in for a treat for this year's design with a different theme (think the Olympics!)
Remember to tell your friends and family about the "Hidden Gem of the NW!"
Brian C. Davis - Race Director

Never Give UpUpdated February 2013
"Never Give Up!" is Robbin Bryant’s ultimate belief and he is doing a great job following his beliefs. For local residents of Dallas, Oregon, where Robbin lives, seeing the three wheels of his Top End Force G hand-cycle cruising down Wyatt Street is a common sight.
For Robbin, a 47-year-old paraplegic, training has become a significant part of his life. He has always been an active and athletic guy, but at the age of 21 Robbin was involved in a motocross accident that left him paralyzed. Although he had learned about handcycling over 15 years ago Robbin never gave it much thought until many years later when he decided to add more physical activity to his life. He decided it was time to get back into athletics and look at cycling more seriously.
