The 5K is an out and back that crosses over the Greenway Bridge into Skinner Butte Park. The 10k is new this year and will not be crossing the Willamette. It will have a couple out and backs on the Delta and Owosso Bike Bridges. Last year’s event saw about 550 total runners, so it will definitely be a fun and active atmosphere out there!
Awards will take place afterwards, and you have extra opportunities to win if you participate in both, as times from each event will be combined for a total placing. You can even shake it up with one 5k and one 10k if you wish. There will be a post-race party (it is New Year’s after all) at McGrath’s, which will include refreshments & special bar pricing.
