Race Preview: 2015 Eagle Point Fourth of July Fun Run

Have (running) plans for the Fourth of July?  If you happen to be in Southern Oregon, check out the Eagle Point 1 mile or 5K run/walk "fun run" in Eagle Point, Oregon.  The event is just one part of the area's celebration for that day, so you might also be interested in some of the other scheduled events as well, including breakfast hosted by Boy Scouts at the local Grange hall,  a parade, entertainment at the Bob Moore Park, fireworks.... and that's not all!  An intermission of sky divers before the final firework finale.

For the morning’s race, refreshments will be available at the Bob Moore Park adjacent to the start/finish area.  The start and finish for both the 1 mile and the 5k run/walk will be held on Main Street “in front of the flag poles”.  I’m not familiar with this area, but it sounds like a charming, small town event.  Another clue to the small town feel, is any event that offers a phone number for the race director as an alternative for picking up your race packet the morning of the event.

About Robin York (146 Articles)
Robin grew up as a couch potato and did everything she could to get out of exercise, until one day a good friend would not stop talking about this fun 5k race she was doing. Finally Robin got off the couch and trained for this "fun" race using C25K (couch to 5k program). After crossing that first finish line, she kept going and became a "runner". After losing 80 lbs, gaining health, a love of being active and setting a healthy example for her husband and kids, she thinks she'll stick with this whole "running thing".
