Race Preview: 2016 Echo Sage Trail Run

Eastern Oregon's only Fall trail race is coming in October. The Echo Sage Trail Run offers a distance for every runner with a 5K, 10K, 25K, and 50K. Enjoy the beauty of Eastern Oregon with a small town race that boasts the support of a big race. All proceeds from this event will go to the Echo/Stanfield Scholarship Fund through Echo Kiwanas. This college scholarship is for students that have graduated from either Echo or Stanfield High School. Last year, seven $1,000 scholarships were awarded to deserving students.

The Echo Sage Trail Run begins at the foothills of the Blue Mountains and runs to the Umatilla River just south of Echo, Oregon. The race course is on privately owned farmland that has been open to the public for the past 10 years. 25 miles of trails on the Echo West Ranch and Vineyard have been developed and maintained by local bike clubs, bike shops, and volunteers.
