The ORRC Hagg Lake runs – the road runs, not the mud runs – are coming up on Saturday, May 3, 2014. There is a 10.5-miler, a 10k, and a 5k; walkers are invited to participate in all three distances.
There’s something you should know about this race. It has a pie raffle.
Yes, yummy, delicious pie. And everyone who shows up on the day of the race is eligible to win one! There is a post-race pie raffle that seems to be more exciting than finding out if you won an age group award … which are handed out six deep in every age group, thank you very much.
Here’s what you need to know:
When: Saturday, May 3, 2014
What time: The 10.5-Miler walkers start at 8a, the 10.5-Miler runners and all 10k participants start at 9a
Where: Boat Ramp C at Hagg Lake near Forest Grove
Register: You can register online here for $25 for any distance. ORRC members save $5 for pre-registration. DOR registration is $30 for everyone. Keep in mind there is also a $5 parking fee at the park, so you should try to carpool.
New this year – pre-registered participants will receive this cool pair of socks from Fitsok. If you register day of race you might be able to get a pair, but they’re not guaranteed.
The course is simple for the 10.5-miler. You will head around the lake, counter-clockwise. Keep the lake on your left and don’t take any turns, and you’ll be fine. The 5k and 10k courses are also pretty easy out-and-backs. The 5k is part of the ORRC 5k Series and the 10k is part of the ORRC 10k Series, so Run Oregon expects a large race field and a fun race atmosphere.
