That’s right, two races! The first is a 5K at Champoeg Park on April 19, 2004, at 4 p.m., and the second is a 5K at Salmon Creek Park in Vancouver, Washington on April 21, 2004, at 7 p.m.
What makes this race unusual is that it’s a scholarship fundraiser. The net proceeds from the events will go to fund scholarships. Who can earn these scholarships? Any high school seniors who’ve run or who’ve had a parent run in an Uberthons race can apply by completing the application form. A committee of runners selected by Uberthons will judge the applications and select the winners, who will be announced on the respective race days.
Champoeg Park is a terrific venue for a race. It’s pretty flat and tends to be fast. I’ve raced there twice and PR’d both times.
