Race Preview: 2016 Run with the Eagle 5k and Kid’s Fun Run

A photo from the 2014 Run With the Eagle 5k: Kelly Barten (with Eliza), Joe Dudman (with a nasty black eye – he’s not a Sith!), and the incredible Janelle Dickerson before the race.

Who likes hills? And low-cost races that benefit good causes? This, then, is the race for you!

At only $20 for adults 18+ and $10 for ages 17 and under, you can fit this race in your budget. Race shirts are only $5 for adults or kids, and the kid’s fun run is free.Funds benefit the programs at Sexton Mountain Elementary School.

The course runs up and over, down and around the hills near Sexton Mountain Elementary, making use of the Powerline Trail and the shaded neighborhood streets. I have run this one and found it to be well-organized and well-attended, especially by younger runners. Run it as a family or run it solo; make it a comfortable walk or try to earn a spot in the top three – this race is suitable for all types of runners and walkers.

Here are the vitals:

About Kelly Barten (1151 Articles)
I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
