If you like smaller races on the cheap, and live in the Eugene/Springfield area, head on over to the Spring into Summer Run/Walk on Saturday, May 31st, 2014! This event has had approximately 200 total participants in years past, which featured an 8k and a 2 miler. However, the distances being offered for 2014 are a 5k run/walk and a kids dash. The course is VERY flat (maximum elevation gain is 37 feet), and the event benefits O’Hara Catholic School.
