Join me at the Willamette River Run, a production of Eclectic Edge Racing, occurring Sunday, April 24, 2016 in Springfield, Oregon.

Join me on Sunday, April 24 for another amazing event produced by Eclectic Edge Racing! This race, the Willamette River Run, will feature a gorgeous 8 mile run, 4 mile run (and walk), or a 8 mile relay team for two. For those choosing the 8 mile run, or 8 mile two person relay, the start/finish line will be at Dorris Ranch Park. Participants will tour along the middle Fork bike path until reaching the loop and turnaround at Clearwater Park, then return to Dorris Ranch Park. See below for information on the shuttle for the second relay team member. 

For the 4 mile run or walk, participants will park at Dorris Ranch Park, then be shuttled to the 4 mile start, which is at Clearwater Park. There is no parking at the 4 mile start, so please park at Dorris Ranch Park and catch the shuttle! Dorris Ranch Park is where the packet pick-up will occur, so don’t head to Clearwater Park. The shuttle will be fun! Shuttles will depart Dorris Ranch Park at two times; one at 9:15 a.m., and the next shuttle at 9:40 a.m. A gear-bag check will be available, so feel free to bring your items on the shuttle with you (please make sure to display your name and bib number clearly on the bag – it helps everyone!). For those holding down leg-two of the 8 mile relay, you will catch this shuttle, as well, so you can meet your leg-one relay partner at Clearwater Park for the hand-off. Leg-one relay partners will catch the shuttle back to Dorris Ranch Park at this exchange point.

Both courses are pretty flat, so expect to fly like the wind. Awards will be presented at the finish line to the top three overall male and female finishers in each distance, as well as the top three in each age group for each distance.

Get the Willamette River Run on your race calendar straight away! This is going to be a delightful event, and I can’t wait to see everyone out there!
