Race Preview: 2016 Monroe Country Fun Run 10K/5K/Kids Events 6/4/16 (Monroe, Ore.)

Looking for an outstanding 5K or 10K run/walk that will take place on the quiet, beautiful, country setting of Monroe, Oregon? If so, the 10th annual Monroe Country Fun Run is the event you should get registered for! This will be an outstanding family event, which also includes a kids 1 mile and 400 meter run. All ages and abilities welcome! Strollers are welcome on the course. And, to top off the festivities, the Monroe Public Library is kicking off their summer reading program at this event - with the theme related to fitness! Now in it's 10th year, the Monroe Country Fun Run is a fundraising event for the Monroe Cross Country Club (cross country and track teams at the Monroe School District 1J). Teams are welcome, and those registering with 5 or more participants save $5 off the registration fees.


If you haven’t had the opportunity to check out Monroe, it is a short drive (20 miles) south of Corvallis and (30 miles) north of Eugene. The town is filled with “small town pride”, which is outstanding. Both the 10K and 5K course will follow mostly paved, very quiet rural roads, and you will only experience a little elevation gain.

Top male and female winners of each distance, and well as the top three in each age group, will receive awards.

Rumor has it Monroe High School, where the event starts/finishes, may host a pancake breakfast, too! This has not been confirmed as of the time of this writing.

Entry fees (which include the event shirt) are $25 for the 10K, $20 for the 5K, and $5 for the Kids 1 mile or 400 meter event. A $5 price increase will occur after 5/15. Get registered for this spectacular, local running event. It is going to be awesome!
