The shortest distance is a 1k (six-tenths of a mile) for kids age 10 and younger. There’s a 2k for ages 14 and younger, and a 3k for ages 7-14 as the longest event. The races are spaced out, so young athletes can run in more than one if they want – and so siblings and parents can cheer on their runners.
Funds raised from this event are used by the Cascade School District to support their physical education and science programs. There are a huge number of great local sponsors, including the wonderful team at Gallagher Fitness in Salem, who help put the event on.
