We here at Run Oregon believe that all races, both big and small, deserve some love and recognition. Each Monday, we are going to attempt to do a short preview for an small, uncoming race that following weekend. First in our series is the Heart and Sole Walk/Run in Longview, WA this next Saturday, February 15
The Heart and Sole Walk/Run 5k/10k Run is a community race that promotes healthy families. WHile the race may be “small” by Metro Portland standards, but it is big in energy and support of those running. Check out a course map on their brochure, but it’s pretty simple and straighforward (and beautiful I am assuming). It will follow the walking, jogging, and bicycling paths around Lake Sacajawea. The 10k will be double loop.
In addition to the 5k and 10k, there will be a free “mini-K” run for kids 12-under aroud a small track. Shirts are available for purhcase as well, though won’t be guaranteed. I would recommend contacting the Longview Kiwanis to see if there are going to be any on site DOR.
The event is organized by the Longview Kiwanis and proceeds benefit the City of Longview Teen Program. If you are looking to check out a new race and support a local community in the process, consider heading to Longview this weekend!
