Race Preview: 2016 Couve Clover Run 5K, Lucky 7 miles and 10 miles


Couve Clover Run

Are you feeling lucky?  Join me as I celebrate the first day of spring (and my birthday) in style at the Couve Clover Run which supports a variety of local charities. Each registrant can pick a cause that they feel passionate about and join a team to support. If a charity team gets 50 or more members, $5 from each person’s registration will go to that charity. It’s an easy and fun way to raise money for an important cause. Registration also includes a tech race shirt, chip timed event, finisher's medal, costume contest with prizes, post race party and music with a festive entertainment for the whole family, treats including warm soup and hot drinks, green cupcakes, savory treats, as well as green beer provided by Deschutes Brewery.  

Course description for the 3 miles, Lucky 7 miles and 10 mile courses are promising to take you through some of the most scenic areas of Vancouver, highlighting the wonderful community (including historic Officer’s Row, Fort Vancouver, the Columbian Riverfront, Ester Short Park, Farmers Market and more). The course is mostly flat with a couple short hills.  The courses will have a couple key areas where it will be vital for runners and walkers to pay attention to volunteers, signage, flashing lights and an otherwise well marked course when distances split off from the main 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".
