The Scandia Run & Walk is put on by Valley South Athletic Club, a 501(c)3 non-profit that endeavors to promote athletics and scholarship in the community. Proceeds from the Scandia Run are used to support the track and cross-country programs of Junction City High School & Oaklea Middle School, Food for Lane County, and other community groups.
Starting at Lyle Day Park, both the 5 and 10K promise to be flat, fast courses. The out and back courses promise beautiful farm country as the backdrop and plenty of aid stations.
The Scandia Run also offers a team competition for teams of any size. The top 5 team members will have their times combined for a team score. The top 3 teams in each division will win prizes. For more information on teams, or to register your team, see the form here.
There will also be prizes for the top 3 runners in each age division, as well as random prize drawings for all participants. Stick around for the drawings, as the grand prize is the Scandia Run Quilt. Post-race refreshments will be available thanks to Dari-Mart.
If you are looking for a 5 or 10K PR course, make the trip out to Junction City for this annual event, sure to give you that small town race feel with the assurance of a well-established race.
