ORRC Hagg Lake 10.5-miler, 10k, and 5k preview

ORRC Hagg Lake Sox 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.

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
