Race Preview: 2015 Easter Egg Stash Dash Half, 5k, and Kid’s Easter Egg Hunt 1k

As April approaches each year, the thing that typically is on each of my daughters' minds is "where are we going to do Easter Eggs this year?" We typically try new places, so we may meander down south to Eugene for the 2015 Easter Egg Stash Dash, put on by Pink Buffalo Events.

This event features a wide range of distances spread throughout the day – a half, a 5k, and most importantly a kid’s 1k with Easter Egg hunt. Both the half and the 5k take loops around Pre’s Trail in Alton Baker Park. If you haven’t run here before – you are missing out. It is flat, well-maintained, and just screams running.

The great thing about the Easter Egg Stash Dash is the spread-out times of each of the distances. You can seriously make a day of it if you want – get a half in, watch your kids get their eggs, and then tackle the all-ages 5k challenge. It’s a win-win for everyone. Per the website:

There will be many eggs hidden along the course and participants are challenged to carry as many eggs to the finish as they can. Baskets and bags are not allowed for the 5K event, but participants can carry them in their hands. . Participants can exchange eggs for goodies at the finish line if they so desire.

Now that’s cool.
