My first thoughts about this race, I confess, were immediately that the course almost has to be flat, which is a really great way to endear a race close to my, and probably many a runner’s, heart. Lending excitement to an already intriguing, and quintessentially summer, ambiance, the air show is scheduled to run from 8am to 1pm, so if you’ve ever wanted to get your tower buzzed while in your running shoes, this is your chance.
With jets overhead to keep you company on the tarmac, the real challenge will likely be keeping your eyes on the course. Add to it that the mission of the Eugene Active 20-30 club is to help improve the quality of life for both young adults and kids with special needs, you’ve got yourself a pretty compelling reason to check it out, and feel good about that race fee.
Along with a race shirt and runway running bragging rights, you’ll get the chance to spend the morning watching the air show, enjoy live music and entertainment, and give the kids – and yourself – what promises to be a memorable day at the airport.
