Small race preview: Splint & Sprint 5k & Mile in Reedsport on May 3

The Small Race Preview is a weekly feature where we highlight an event put on by a local (usually volunteer) race organizer to benefit a local cause. 

The Splint & Sprint 5k is this week’s featured small race. Taking place on Saturday, May 3 in Reedsport, Ore., the Splint & Sprint is so named because it’s a fund raiser for the Lower Umpqua Hospital Foundation, which supports public health in portions of Coos, Lane and Douglas Counties. Better yet, it’s only $5!

About an hour and a half southwest of Eugene on the Oregon Coast, Reedsport is near the mouth of the Umpqua River, separated by the Pacific Ocean by the Oregon Dunes National Recreational Area.

Here are the details:

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.
