Race Preview: OTC Running Series #6 8/11/16 (Eugene, Ore.)

Oregon Track Club (OTC) presents the sixth monthly installment of their popular monthly run/walk events. Free for OTC members, or $5 for non-members, the August event, occurring on Thursday, August 11, will feature a 5K cross-country style course at Dorris Ranch in Springfield, Oregon. Don’t let the word cross-country intimidate you – it is, in essence, a trail run.

As an OTC member myself, I am thrilled OTC began this tradition six years ago. The tradition? Well, on the second Thursday of the month, beginning in March and ending in October, OTC hosts a run/walk event that is free for members or $5 for all non-members. These events are professionally chip timed by Eclectic Edge Racing, and all ages and all abilities are warmly welcomed. I haven’t participated in enough of them myself, and I always regret when my busy schedule interfere with a second-Thursday OTC run. 

If you haven’t checked out Dorris Ranch, you need to. The location is impeccable for running and walking.

Please register in advance online, or arrive early on race day (beginning at 5 p.m.), to register in-person. The race begins at 6 p.m. I have it blocked out on my calendar … as I always do … I hope I can get out there and join in on the fun! Hope to see you there!
