Race Preview: 2015 Run for the Birds – Klamath Falls

Linkville Lopers

Linkville Lopers

In association with International Migratory Day, the Linkville Lopers bring you the Run for the Birds. Enjoy the best bird watching in Southern Oregon!  80% of Pacific Flyway birds stop over at the Klamath Basin wetlands and lake areas. The Klamath Basin has the largest population of over wintering Bald Eagles in the lower 48 States!  So needless to say, on any given day, bird watchers can see many of the 350 bird species that call the Klamath Basin home.

At Run for the Birds, the one mile run and 5k are along the scenic Link River Trail.  Surely the vistas and bird watching will be fabulous at this height of spring run.  The 10k course includes the Link River Trail and several beautiful trails in Moore Park.  There is a free 1/4 mile Kids Fun Run in beautiful Veterans Park on the grass.

Come for the run and stay for the Klamath Falls Migratory Bird Festival. From 10 am – 3 pm, the whole family can enjoy free and educational events, such as bird walks, live bird demonstrations, hands on activities, birding by kayak, and more.  There will be food, vendor booths and music all day for you to enjoy!
