For the past few years, the 8th grade class at Calapooia Middle School in Albany has been travelling to Washington DC. In an effort to offset some of the costs, they have been hosting the Run to DC 3k/5k. This 3rd annual race is back again at Linn-Benton Community College. The distances are run almost entirely on a bark chip path or other soft surface witha finish on the Linn Benton Community College track. Expect a small town race, but one that will directly help out some kids in the Willamette Valley!

Run to DC 3k/5k (Albany)
When: February 22 – 3k at 10a and 5k at 11a
Where: Linn-Benton Community College
Register: Online here for $10; Shirts available DOR
