Race Preview: Miles On Memorial 15K, 10K, 5K, 1-Mile 5/30/16 (Eugene, Ore.)

Miles On Memorial, a production of the incredible runners at Eclectic Edge Racing, will be an exceptional way to spend Memorial Day (Monday, May 30, 2016). Grab 2 friends or family members and choose to participate in the 15K relay, or fly on your own and choose from the 15K, 10K, 5K and/or 1-Mile distances. The 1-Mile event begins prior to the others, so you can double-up and run in two events if you choose. The relay teams will be split into 5 divisions - open, armed forces, business, high school, or middle school. There will also be team divisions for those participating in the 15K, 10K, or 5K. These 5 divisions will be open, armed forces, business, high school, or middle school. For those running in the teams division, note that the top four times on your team will be added together for the cumulative team score. For teams five and over, only the four fastest times will be used in the calculation - so feel free to bring the entire family and all your friends, regardless of speed! 

The event will kick off at 9 a.m. in Eugene’s Alton Baker Park. At 9 a.m., the 1-Mile heats will kick-off. Your heat will be determined based on how many participants register for the 1 Mile event. Then at 9:30 a.m., the remaining events kick-off! The course for the 15K, 10K and 5K will consist of a 5K loop through the quiet, paved, multi-use paths of Alton Baker Park. If you choose the 15K, you will run the loop three times (or once each for the relay), the 10K will run the course twice, and the 5K once.

Awards will be presented to the top overall male and female finishers in each race distance. Also, the top three in each age group, each distance, will receive awards. For relay teams, the top team in each division will receive awards, as well as the top team in each division of those choosing the 15K, 10K, and 5K team run.

Packet pick-up will take place race morning beginning at 7:30 a.m. Entry fees are $25 for the 15K, 10K and 5K, or $15 for the 1 Mile. The 3-person relay entry fee is $60 (regardless of age). Those 17 and under or 60 and better receive a $5 discount. Race day registration is available beginning at 7:30 a.m. for an additional $5.
