Who doesn't love a good strawberry? Along with raspberries, it is my summer fruit staple. The Strawberry Run is a 5k that is just one of the many events during Lebanon’s 105th annual Strawberry Festival. The run precedes the Grand Parade and opens the day highlighted by the serving the “World’s Largest Strawberry Shortcake” free to over 15,000 people.
The nationally certified 5k run starts and finishes near the American Legion Hall (Main & Vine Streets) in downtown Lebanon. The course is very simple, following the Grand Parade route on Highway 20 through town and back. Expect locals to be lining the street to cheer you on as they wait for the parade to start.
The race benefits the Lebanon High School Cross Country team.
