Race Preview: 2014 Abduction Dash

Can I have this poster in my life forever? It's the best.

Can I have this poster in my life forever? It’s the best.

What are you doing this weekend? I hope you’re going to be running the 2014 Abduction Dash this Saturday, May 17 at 1:15 p.m. in McMinnville, Oregon. The Abduction Dash is a one mile fun-run and obstacle course that is put on and benefitting the McMinnville High School Cross Country team.

This fun run is a part of the UFO Festival that takes place in McMinnville every year and is put on by the city and McMenamins. The weekend will include many great speakers and musical performances, but what catches my eye is the parade that happens directly after the Abduction Dash. The UFO costume parade happens at 2 p.m. on Saturday (right after the run) and, i’m sure, is a sight to see. Might be a good day to head on over to McMinnville, do a quick run benefitting a local cross country team (do it for the kids!!), and then stick around for the costume parade and get some good grub and beer. The race only costs $12 and sounds like a ton of fun.

Can you flee the aliens??? Stop by this race on Saturday to see…
