Race Preview: OTC Run/Walk Series #4 6/9/16 (Springfield, Ore.)

This year, I decided to join Oregon Track Club (OTC), and I’m so thankful I did! Oregon Track Club is very active in the Eugene/Springfield community, and offers an array of outstanding benefits to members. One of my favorite membership benefits is the monthly Run/Walk Series that occurs from March through October, on the second Thursday of each month. OTC has been offering these for six years now – I can’t believe it took me so long to become a member.

June’s 5K running/walking event will take place at Island Park in Springfield, with a start time of 6 p.m. Free for OTC members, or $5 for non-members, these chip timed events are an outstanding way to meet new friends, be around like-minded individuals for a while, run (or walk), and be able to track your results in a non-race environment (i.e. – crowded!). Eclectic Edge Racing is on site providing timing and announcing at these events.

All OTC monthly events are open to everyone – new runners, new walkers, seasoned athletes, everything! For the super-speedy ones, Track Town Pizza provides $25 gift certificates to the winning male and female finishers. Wish I was fast and could get my hands on one of those!

Online registration is available – save time and get registered prior to the event. Race day registration is also available (but please arrive a little early so you have enough time to fill out the registration form). A paper entry form may also be printed from home and brought, filled out, to the event to keep things moving along.

The OTC Race #4 is on my calendar, and I hope to see a lot of you out there!
