Race Preview: 2015 Riddle Sawdust Jubilee 5K (Riddle, OR, July 4th, 2015)

Q. What Oregon town is probably tired of having people pose tricky questions about its name? A. Riddle! OK, now that I got that out of the way, let's talk about the Riddle Sawdust Jubilee 5K, one of many small town Independence Day races around the state. The 4th of July is probably the best day of the year to hit the road and seek out a race in a town you may not have visited before, since almost every city has some event going on.

Riddle is nestled in the hills and valleys of Douglas County, just off I-5 between Myrtle Creek and Canyonville. The “flat and fast” 5k course is an out-and-back, starting in town at the Riddle Community Center and heading into the countryside along Cow Creek.

This race is riddled with reasons to run it: A scenic road trip, a festive small town atmosphere, a flat and fast course, a beautiful area, it’s only $20, and the proceeds benefit the Riddle H.S. track and field team.
