Preview: Oregon State Police Fallen Trooper Memorial Run

OSP Fallen Trooper Memorial RunJune 1 is a busy day for racing, but one race that deserves your attention is the Oregon State Police Fallen Trooper Run. Proceeds from this event will go towards a physical memorial to honor Oregon State Police who lost their lives through their service.

The event, held at Champoeg State Park, offers a 10k, a 5k, a Kid’s 1k, and a CrossFit Relay for teams of six. There’s also a BBQ after the event which is only $5. Additional donations can also be made to the project as part of the registration.

The day will kick off with the Kid’s 1k at 8:45a, followed by the Relay at 9a. The 10k steps off next at 9:15a and the 5k is the last event to start at 9:30a.

The 10k and 5k courses are out and back; links to the routes are on the event website here. Champoeg is a beautiful place to run, with views of the Willamette River. The CrossFit Relay is a 3k out-and-back that all six of the team members will complete for a total team time.

One cool thing about this race is that they already have the link where results will be posted. Disclaimer: I am personal friends with the people that own Huber Timing, who are doing the chip-timing for this race. And they are awesome people.

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.
