Race Preview: Run For The Birds

Run For The Birds in beautiful Sunriver, Oregon is an annual fundraiser for the Nature Center and Observatory.  If you've ever spent time at the Sunriver Nature Center or the Oregon Observatory, you know that this is a great cause.  Both of these non-profit organizations are fun learning experiences for the kids and adults alike.  Personally, I'm a huge fan of the Oregon Observatory.  If you haven't been there, I highly recommend the night viewing. It is ridiculously amazing looking through the high-powered telescopes at the stars and planets.

Run For The Birds will be held on July 26 and includes a 5K, 10K, and Children’s 1K.  Starting at the Sunriver Lodge, the USATF certified course is run on paved trails throughout Sunriver.  I love running in scenic Sunriver and appreciate the traffic-free race courses.  This race is no exception.  I highly recommend Run For The Birds for its beautiful location and stellar cause. This family friendly event will not disappoint!
