Race Preview: Twin Cities Summit Run in Eugene

The Two Cities Summit Run is back again in Springfield/Eugene this upcoming June. The June 22nd event will feature both an 8k and a 12k, complete with some climbs. I mean, with a name like "Summit Run", what did you expect? 8k runners will climb Skinner Butte and 12k runners will tackle Kelly Butte in addition to Skinner. Here is a quote of the race course from the Level 32 website:

The 8K starts in Eastgate Woodlands Park and travels west on the bike paths through Alton Baker Park, crosses the Defazio Bridge, goes through Skinner Butte Park, ascends Skinner Butte and finishes at the summit. The 12K starts in Eastgate Woodlands Park and travels east on the bike paths to D Street, heads into the neighborhood to the north, ascends Kelly Butte, returns to Eastgate Woodlands Park and then travels west on the bike paths through Alton Baker Park, crosses the Defazio Bridge, goes through Skinner Butte Park, ascends Skinner Butte and finishes at the summit.

Check out a map of the 12k to know what you are getting yourself into. Since this is a one-way race, runners will will park their cars at Skinner Butte Park and shuttle to the start at Eastgate Woodlands Park. The two shuttle times will be at 7a and 735a.
